Yes, I’m checking in from the airport. I’m pathetic, I know.
Be that as it may, those of you who have been on the fence on picking up a copy of You’re Not Fooling Anyone When You Take Your Laptop to a Coffeeshop: Scalzi on Writing should read the following note by Subterranean Press publisher Bill Schafer, which he left in the comment to a previous thread, but which I am now bumping up to the front page:
We’re finishing up shipping pre-ordered copies of YOU’RE NOT FOOLING ANYONE… and only have 20 copies left. If you want one, I suggest you head over to the SubPress site and snag one.
The reason Bill suggests you go to the Sub Press site rather than, say, Amazon, is that orders through the Sub Press site take priority at this point.
In other news: Hey, a book of mine is almost completely sold out even before it goes on sale. I feel shiny. Thank you.
Anyway, if you do want a copy of the book: Hurry.
Update, 5:40pm — They’re all gone now.
I’m heading to Boston, there to geek out for the next three days. I’ll most likely update between now and Sunday, but then again, I might not. I’m just contrary that way. In the meantime, you kids have fun. I didn’t lock the liquor cabinet this time. But that doesn’t mean I want to come back and find the place a mess, all right?

A couple of quick review links: Steven Bainbridge has nice things to say about “The Sagan Diary” and the Davis Enterprise likes The Android’s Dream. I am pleased with the former review because it’s really the first one I’ve seen of “Sagan,” and Professor Bainbridge has been an avid reader of the previous work, so I’m happy to see “Sagan” works for him; the latter one I like for this quote: “It takes talent to write a novel in which the world may be saved by a sheep.” That’s back cover-worthy.
