Publication Day

Although it's been on the shelves of Forbidden Planet and available from Amazon for a couple of days now, this is the official publication day of The Quiet War. I'll put up one last free chapter tomorrow, and if you scoot over to my author's page on the Orion site, you'll find a .pdf of an old school Quiet War story, 'Reef', free to download, as well as links to Amazon so you can, if you wish, buy the book. And if you want a first edition hardback, you'll have to be quick: as with so many books these days, the hardback printing run was fairly small (or 'exclusive' as they say in ad land).

Thanks very much, looking forward to getting this.

Could also mention that 'Reef' was in two Year's Best collections - it is really good.

Thanks, Blue. It was in Hartwell and Kramer's Hard SF Rennaissance shelf-bender too. And now it's in the wild...

That'd be a good name for a magic book. Spellbreaker, Shelfbender...

The Shelfbender Chronicles, mayhap. Confessions of a Shelfbender, would be an entirely different genre of course.
