Another good week for IWW members. Congratulations to all for their latest publishing successes.
My review of, The Getaway, is up at IRB. http://internetreviewofbooks.blogspot.com
A quick yahoo for my fourth novel, The Fallen, which has just launched in the US and Canada. It received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, and is currently number one in World Literature: African on Amazon.ca. I am so thrilled about this. Although The Fallen was not subbed on Novels-L, the first in the series - Random Violence - was. This book was subsequently accepted by a South African publisher and a UK agent, and a couple of years later, was taken on
by Soho Press in the USA.

I was interviewed on James "Jake" Shannon's radio show (KTKK, Utah, am 630 K-Talk) on Wednesday, 4/11 at 3:15 PM (EST) or 1:15 (MST) about my books. Here is the audio tape of the interview: http://www.falseallegations.com/jake-shannon-interview-ktkk-radio-41112.mp3
The first few minutes on the tape is the recording of the show preceding Jake's show. When you hear a man's voice, the interview will begin momentarily.

This is a great week: I've a poem, “Two worlds,” up at Front Porch Review.
I've been a regular contributor to the NY Times for a couple of years now, so a yahoo is rarely called for. But I devoted many long days to a review of a UCS electric car research project, the first definitive study of electric-vehicle greenhouse-gas emissions. It's certainly the most important project I've undertaken for that publication it runs in the paper tomorrow and is up on the web now: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/15/automobiles/how-green-are-electric-cars-depends-on-where-you-plug-in.html?pagewanted=1&_r=1&hpw
