A quick note about things of interest involving me and my output:
1. SFFaudio reviews the audio version of Old Man’s War and gives it an “Essential” ranking:
Audible.com (and the iTunes Audiobook Store) has made itself a must-try service by the very exclusivity of this audiobook. If you want to hear this Hugo nominated adventure, you have to sign up with audible.com or iTunes to get it. Narrator William Dufris is his reliable self, injecting battalions of charm and humor into the voices of John Perry and his various companions. Old Man’s War is a righteous addition to Heinlein’s Troopers legacy. The name of John Scalzi can now stand in Science Fiction pantheon proudly beside the likes of Orson Scott Card, Joe Haldeman and Robert A. Heinlein.
Neat, and I’ll be very surprised if Tor’s marketing people don’t jump on that last sentence. Here’s the link to OMW on Audible, just in case you lost it from when I pimped it earlier.
2. Those of you who prefer to buy things through Amazon will be happy to know that the second edition of Coffee Shop is now available through the online retailer. It’s going very fast, or so I’m told, so jump on that thing if you want it. Amazon also has the limited edition of The Ghost Brigades in stock, at a bit of a discount. It’s just $48! Which is actually a bargain, if only for Vincent Chong’s righteous full-color art.
3. Tor just sent me proof covers for Zoe’s Tale, and I just have to say, damn, they’re pretty. I think this might be my favorite John Harris cover yet. And it’s a remind that, hey, I have to finish this book, uh, sometime.
On that note, I’m going now.
