Some book-related notes:
1. I’m going into Jay & Mary’s Book Center to sign books this weekend, so today is a fine time to give them a call and order some books to have me sign and personalize for holiday gifts. I’ll be doing this for at least a couple of more weeks, but as you know, holiday mail being what it is, the sooner y’all get your orders in, the better.
3. METAtropolis, the audiobook anthology I wrote with Elizabeth Bear, Tobias Buckell, Jay Lake and Karl Schroeder, was selected as one of the Best Audiobooks of 2008 by the folks at iTunes. Go us. You can see this accolade for yourself by clicking into iTunes’ audiobook section. While there, if you’ve not already picked up METAtropolis, you might, you know, think about doing so. Maybe. If you want. No pressure or anything.
4. By the way, be sure to congratulate Toby Buckell, since his latest book The Cole Protocol will be dropping in on the New York Times Trade Paperback Bestseller List at #4. Which is pretty damn nifty.
6. Finally, remember that if you’re looking for book as gift ideas, there are 100+ suggestions from your fellow Whatever readers right here. You can’t blame us if you can’t think of anything.
