A couple of quick notes for everyone about upcoming projects:
* Subterranean Press tells me that Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded is going to press in a couple of weeks and will start shipping early October, so if you haven’t yet picked up a copy, there’s still time. You can get it through Subterranean (the link above) and now also through Amazon. Be aware that if you get it through Subterranean, you’ll also get the special edition chapbook Waiting for Athena, which collects up my essays about waiting for my daughter to be born. So while ordering from Amazon is cheaper, if you order from Subterranean, you get more stuff. These are the tradeoffs life provides you.
* Subterranean Press has also opened up pre-orders for the limited, signed edition of The Last Colony, which as with the previous Subterranean editions of books in the OMW universe, will feature super-bitchin’ cover and interior art by Vincent Chong, to be published in early 2009. As with the earlier OMW books by Subterranean, TLC will be limited to 400 copies plus 15 super-deluxe “lettered” editions, so if you’re a collector (and especially if you’ve gotten the previous SubPress editions in the series), pre-ordering might be the way you want to go.
* While I’m thinking about upcoming projects, I should note that the reason I was in the recording studio yesterday was that I was recording some intros for Metatropolis, the upcoming audiobook anthology I edited, which features novellas by Elizabeth Bear, Tobias Buckell, Jay Lake, Karl Schroeder and me. There’s a lot going on with that project, much of which is very cool, which I can’t tell you about yet. Sorry. Suffice to say that when I can reveal all, I think you’re all going to be impressed and excited. I can tell you that it’s currently slated to be available next month. So all you audiobook fans, prepare to gird your loins.
* Also coming in October (October 28, to be precise), the updated, trade paperback edition of Agent to the Stars. Considering the hardcover editions of this start at $195 and go up from there, this will be the rather more affordable way to have it in a printed edition. Also, as noted, this edition has been cleaned up and updated, so it’s fair to say that it’s the author’s preferred version.
* After Agent, you know what I’ve got? Nothin’ — at least not until The High Castle in October 2009. Try not to forget me between now and then, okay? And, also, stock up now. Thanks.
