As of August 1, 2010: a blog site recounting the adventures and process of completing Kage's unfinished sequel to The Women of Nell Gwynne's. Go check it out at


  • Kage Baker died at 1:15 AM on January 31, 2010. She wanted all her readers to know: "I want you to tell all these people that I wanted more time to spend with them. Tell them I meant to, tell them I wanted to hear what they said and tell them what was on my mind."
    Her work was not finished, and will go on. Please bear with us in patience as we deal with the sorrow and the many tasks attendent upon mortality. This site will be maintained, and all news will be posted as soon as possible. Thank you.

    The Women of Nell Gwynne's took the 2009 Nebula for Best Novella! AND the 2010 Locus Award for Best Novella! I am not sure how the dates work out, since they both won in the last 4 months, but that's what the awards say ... what's a little time warp between industry standards?

    New Pages!

    At last, a proper page and excerpt for The House of the Stag, (which just won a ROMANTIC TIMES' REVIEWER'S CHOICE Award!) as well as one for The Empress of Mars Also, Kage's Bibliography section has been moved to a new page of its own. Check out these links:

    Go to to read Kage's weekly blog piece on early science fiction films!


    Here's what's up: Kage expanded the original 2003 novella into a full-length novel (and the first reviewer to use the word "bloated" gets slapped for lack of originality). New characters, new adventures, improved science! And there were two editions: the first, a handsome limited-edition from Subterranean Press with art by J.K. Potter. The reasonably priced hardcover from Tor Books was released in May 2009. All clear now?

    Or go have a listen to a podcast of the Alec Checkerfield story, The Likely Lad! And listen to other aural delights at StarShipSofa: The Audio Science Fiction Magazine. Many thanks to Tony and Martyn for a hilarious reading. And look for more of Kage's fiction, and great science fiction in general, from this promising new audiozine.
