Slow Light Photography

In REDSHIFT RENDEZVOUS, aboard the REDSHIFT hyperspace craft, light travels at ten meters per second. Now, researchers have been able to photograph a trillion frames per second, so they can watch light travel slowly into a liquid-filled pop bottle. It's pretty amazing video, and they postulate how this could be used to see around corners. TED Talk on YouTube.

New Artwork for DEATH TOLLS Purchased

Here's another new piece of artwork to use in re-issuing DEATH TOLLS, which is set on a partially terraformed Mars. The artist is Charlie Pharis and the piece is called "Hard Crash." ReAnimus Press will publish it in 2016 or 2017. It was originally published in 1987 by Ace Books, in 1988 in Italy, and in 1996 in Russia..

Reprint Deal Signed with ReAnimus Press

I've signed a new contract with ReAnimus Press to reprint my backlist during 2016 and 2017.

Reprint Update

For a time, John E. Stith novels are going to be more difficult to buy.

I've ended my reprint contract with Wildside Press, and I plan to pull my titles from Amazon Kindle this month. This is in preparation for moving to a new press with all new covers, some content cleanup, and a lack of DRM on all titles, to be as friendly as possible to readers. Eventually all my novels will be back in print. I'll announce more about the schedule here and on my Facebook page and on my Twitter feed.
