For us (relatively) new visitors, how about a FAQ about what happens to all of these ARC books? If you are keeping them, you must have an entire wing of the Scalzi compound just for the ARC library.

Thanks…Merry [whatever you are celebrating] !

I’ll prefer, um, er, yeah, uh . . . ALL OF THOSE CLASSICS IN THE MIDDLE! YES, I SAID ALL OF THEM! BUY SAM SYKES’ BOOK!

To Rick: I don’t know exactly, but I do know they are not for distribution to us. Apparently, as part of a sales promotional arrangement, the authors who receive them are not allowed to give them out. I will listen carefully to John’s answer.

Those Penguin Galaxy editions are lovely. I know Ace is a paperback publisher, but it’s about bloody time that “Neuromancer” got a nice hardback edition.

Bujold! I’ve finally gotten around to reading her in 2016 (yeah, late to the party, I know) and recently finished Gentleman Jole, so I’m ready for her next one. Let me hop over to Baen.com and see what’s up with this one.

I don’t have room now to collect the Penguin Classics, and DH & I WILL have to downsize someday, so… Sigh.

Borders of Infinity is a reprint of three short works about Miles back when he was a covert ops guy. With a framing story around them. The three stories have been reprinted in the omnibus editions, but I think the framing story is only in BoI.

It always surprises me that so many of your ARCs are new editions of old books.. Do publishers think ‘hey maybe if Scalzi posts a picture of Dune this book will finally take off?’ That being said.. Off to order that Neuromancer w/ Gaiman preface. Will be the 5th copy of Neuromancer on my bookshelf so maybe I just answered my own question. xD

I dig the concept and design work on the Penguin Galaxy series, but I wish they’d done a better job with the actual production. Looked at them in the store the other day and the bindings were just cheap and awful. Made me sad.

Thanks a bunch for sharing this with all of us you really recognise what you are talking about!
