Fifth things fifth: Del Rey is giving away ten copies of Child of Fire. Here’s the money quote:
Send an e-mail with your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org with Child of Fire in the subject line. E-mails must be received by Wednesday, October 7th. We’ll select ten e-mails at random to receive a special Advance Reader’s Edition of Child of Fire. Good luck!
It sounds like this isn’t the finished version, but the uncorrected “Docksiders” galley. It’s practically a collector’s item. And it comes pre-signed by me.
Of course, everyone reading this is invited.
Seventh things seventh: My short essay on appearing at the San Diego Comic Con is featured in the latest Del Rey Internet Newsletter (but I can’t find it on the web site, so no link right now–mebbe later).
