The annual Wake County Public Library Booksale was a few weeks back. Normally, I post an exhaustive list of everything I found. I'm not going to do that this time, but I thought I'd post a few highlights. Just so everyone can see what kick-ass stuff you can find for under a buck.
King Rat by China Mieville - US ARC
SIMS, Book Two: The Portero Method by F. Paul Wilson - Signed Limited HC
Nothing Human by Nancy Kress - HC, FE
Louisiana Breakdown by Lucious Shepard - HC, FE
The Infinity Gambit by James P. Hogan - ARC
The Radiant Seas by Catherine Asaro - ARC
Communion Blood by Chelsea Quinn Yarbro - ARC
The Marble Orchard by William F. Nolan - ARC
Deep Blue by David Niall Wilson - HC
Most of the ARC's are in really good condition. I was stunned to find the Mieville. The F. Paul Wilson book was actually being used as a library book. WTF? A signed limited being used as a library book? Now, the nice part of this is, once you strip the mylar cover, only a library stamp is left to show it was ever in a library. Ditto for the Golden Gryphon editions of the Shepard & Kress books, and the Five Star Wilson book.. Small press books are nice like that.
Just in case there are ppl on my FL that don't yet subscribe to RTP_Spec_fic
Creeeeeepy looking, no?
The cover art for Raw Meat, the anthology my short story "Culling Trees" will be appearing in, is finally complete. The book should be available for pre-order sometime in August. However, last I heard, it'll be a really small print run. So there won't be a lot of them available.
I'll post pre-order info as soon as it's available. Be sure to get ‘em while they’re bleeding!
While a few of the contests I've won have resulted in online publication, this will be the first story of mine to be printed on genuine dead trees. So I'm pretty excited about it.
I think I should print the cover and post in my cube at work. Think anybody would mind?
This is going to be a busy weekend. I have to finish some minor details on my new website, begin reworking parts of the Letty Agency site, and write two reviews. Probably won't get a lot of fun writing done. Oh well. On that last one, I could get a few non-fiction publications out of the deal.
I found this posted on the NCSU Creative Writing Events page.
