COSine is proud to welcome S.M..Stirling as our Guest of Honor for 2013.
The astonishingly well-read Steve Stirling had his first book published in 1984 and became a full-time writer in 1988. He lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico with his wife Janet and attendant cats. Steve's latest books are THE COUNCIL OF SHADOWS and THE TEARS OF THE SUN. Sample reads of the first few chapters of several of his novels are available at his website at www.stirling.com
Of himself, he says "I'm a writer by trade, born in France but Canadian by origin and American by naturalization, living in New Mexico at present. My hobbies are mostly related to the craft -- I love history, anthropology and archaeology, and am interested in the sciences. The martial arts are my main physical hobby."
