If you’ve been wondering when the print and ebook version of Murder By Other Means, my latest story in the “Dispatcher” series, was going to be available, good news: There’s a date! And it is: April 2021, when my friends at Subterranean Press will be releasing a special signed hardcover limited edition of Murder, along with an ebook edition.
The signed hardcover limited edition, featuring the above fabulous cover by Michael Koelsch, is available for pre-order now, and as always, I do suggest pre-ordering, since “limited edition” does actually mean limited — we’re printing 2,000 copies, and that’s it. Yes, I had to sign my name two thousand times (actually more, as insurance). My hand is very tired. The ebook edition will not be limited however.
If you’ve never gotten a book from SubPress before, incidentally, you’ll be in for a treat, since their books are true collectors items. This will be an edition worth getting. Here’s that pre-order link again.
I’m not sure throwing someone off a water tower counts as anything other than regular old murder.
Ordered! And thank you for ensuring that us old Luddites who still enjoy actual hard-copy printed books can get our fix of the newest Dispatcher story!
Pre-ordered :-). I love that you use Sub Press – they do a great job!
I mean, I wouldn’t use the word “use” here — it’s more that we have a relationship going back a decade and a half and I’m privileged to have them be willing to publish almost all of my non-fiction and non-novel-length fiction.
I’ve been listening to the Dispatcher stuff in the car. I’ve finished the first one and am about 1/3? of the way through the second one. I really like both the writing and the performance.
Do you find that you write differently when it’s intended to be read aloud, rather than read visually?
Is there a way to preorder the e-book (it looks like the pre-order link goes to the hardcopy)?
Thanks. My order is in. I also appreciate that you want everything to be in print for us who don’t use devices. Bonus, whilst looking around SubPress I found another book I really wanted.
