What’s that smell? Why, it’s the toasty, buttery scent of author copies, fresh from the FedEx truck! They’re booktastic! More to the point, the fact I have my copies means that although it’s debatable that The Ghost Brigades is going to show up soon at bookstore near me, given that my local bookseller didn’t bother to stock the Old Man’s War until it was out in paperback, it is entirely possible the book is now wending its way to stores near you, ahead of its official February 21 release date. I trust you’ll let me know if you see it.
Also, for those of you who are going to Boskone, I have received word that TGB definitely will be stocked in the dealer’s room at the convention. So if you can’t find it anywhere before you get to Boskone, you’ll be able to find it there. Personally I’m considering Boskone to be the location of the book’s official debut, and I couldn’t be happier about that.
