Steven Brust: “A masterful storyteller of contagious glee and self-deprecating badassery” —Skyler White



This is to announcement my immediate retirement as a science-fiction writer in order to pursue a career playing professional bingo.  I also plan to go into investment banking as a sidelight.  My hope is that this new career will give me more time to practice the accordion while writing occasional articles for National Review.

  1. I think you overdid it.

  2. Good luck with investment bingo! Always hated your books anyway.

  3. Dont make me come through this computer and kick yer ass.

  4. Hey, I just say todays date. I am such a Noob.

  5. Congratulations. Finally, a respectable job. 🙂

  6. Best of Luck. maybe another author will take up Vlad’s tale.

  7. It’s about time. Don’t forget to oppress some workers, or is that more or less a given?

  8. Please play me a polka!

  9. Charles Stross’s blog of today still has him writing, sort of.

  10. Seriously, I stared at this for 10 minutes before I figured out what day it was. Being sick sure loses one some time sense; I think change of this magnitude even I would have noticed. Silly man!

  11. Dear GOD don’t stop my heart like that!

  12. You gosh darn %#@*& Hippo-loving ^^^% and #$#$ and **** horny-toad!!!! I applied for that position first! It’s my job!! Not yours!!! I will complain to my congressman about this! You just wait and see if I don’t! You’ll get yours you socialistic-liberal wanna-be!!

    (Sorry, that last insult is going a little too far. My apoligies.)

    I thought for sure I would going to get that job! Now I have to keep job hunting you heartless job-theif…yells, screams and curses fade into the distance…

  13. Why not just get a bunch of other authors and go start a band? 😀

  15. Since they fired Frum, there’s a spot open at the American Enterprise Institute.

  16. If you had said Poker instead of Bingo we might have believed you.

  17. You forgot to give the real announcement:

    Vlad! The Musical will be opening on Broadway next week.

    Good luck at Goldman Sachs. We’ll miss you.

  18. I reado-ed that. I thought, “Damn, he’s finally gotten serious about the banjo!” The rest was poppycock, of course.

  19. You forgot the part where you chose David Drake to finish up the Vlad novels.

  20. Congratulations on the career change. I know it can be rough to change your source of income and way of life, but from what I’ve read, you’re the kind of guy to do it. I do have a request, though.

    I do enjoy Vlad’s tale, and I’d like it if you sold the intellectual property before you retire to Stephanie Meyer. She’s one of the best of the new-school of writing, and I’d love to see her take on the characters and world. As a long time fan, I don’t feel you owe us, in fact I feel we owe you… but I’d appreciate it if you consider what I feel would be a good move for Loiosh, Vlad and above all, Sethra.

  21. You know, I’d have almost bought that if you’d said “poker.”

  22. Evil, nasty man, playing dark pranks so.

  23. Oddly enough, you probably could make more money at bingo.

  24. In Bingo do they have cool catchphrases like, “Always bet on B”?
