The New Book: 24 Frames Into the Future

Here it is:
The cover art is by Dan Dos Santos, who is the Artist Guest of Honor here at Boskone. It and the book are quite nice looking. One thing you can’t tell by looking at this picture is that underneath the dust jacket, the book itself is silver. It’s really quite a thing to look at. And the content is, as noted before, a collection of my science fiction film columns from AMC/FilmCritic.com.
If you’re at Boskone, you’ll be able to get it starting tomorrow. If you’re not at Boskone, it will be available for you to get staring early next week. There are only 1100 hardcovers in the first printing, so if you’re a collector, you’ll want to hop to it. It’s worth the getting.
Oh, I am sooo placing that order Monday morning.
They’ll be in a second printing by Monday.
I don’t know… maybe. I got a first printing (including a signed limited of one of them) of the last two GoH NESFA/Boskone books without being at the convention or buying off the secondary market.
How’d you do that, Tim?
So, if you have been reading the columns fairly consistently then there is nothing new here?
gahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh can we order a first addition ??
I am so slow. Was there an earlier posting about where we can get it next week?
Inquiring minds and all that.
I do not see it at Amazon for preorder.
Don’t worry, people, when it opens for sale to the general public I will give you all the details here.
Showing us a book of yours that we won’t be able to buy for 4 days (if we can at all due to limited numbers?).
YOU ARE TAUNTING US AGAIN, TAUNTING SCALZI!
In both cases, I just called NESFA Press and placed an order the Monday after the convention. Two years ago, I was able to snag the signed and slipcased edition of Deep Navigation by Al Reynolds. Last year I had to settle for the unsigned numbered edition of Scratch Monkey by Charlie Stross.
Very cool … I’m looking forward to reading it!
I will be at Boskone and look forward to coming home with the book… Hmmm… I guess I now know how I’ll be spending my day on Sunday. I have a bad habit of reading your books in one sitting.
(Please save one for me… big guy, long ponytail, can’t miss me) :)
It’s also a good photo of you, if you don’t mind me saying. You should use it for something.
Is the book available yet?
Yes, I got my copy from Larry Smith and it’s autographed. Thank you very much!
You others may commence with the jealousy….
