05:03 pm - Squeee! It's Here!
For those few of you not in the know, my story, "Claus of Death," is scheduled to appear in THE DRAGON DONE IT, edited by Mike Resnick and Eric Flint, a reprint anthology of fantasy detective stories, published by Baen Books. Well, even though the official release date is March 4, both Amazon and Barnes and Noble have the book in stock, and are shipping it. Being the impatient sort that I am, I ordered a copy through Amazon, and it arrived today.

Mine! Mine mine mine mine MINE!

It's a beautiful book with a Bob Eggleton cover and a killer lineup, including Esther Friesner, David Drake, Lawrence Schimel, Graham Edwards, Harry Turtledove, Tanya Huff, and Neil Gaiman. I'm in some high-flying company. This is an excellent collection if you happen to like fantasy detective stories, and I couldn't be happier to be part of it. So, order soon, order multiple copies, give them out as birthday presents, whatever. Or go stalk your local bookstore until they get it in.

Man, how do I top this? I'd better get back to work.

I will not purchase a book, schlepp it to the US, have it signed by you and then schlepp it back to Europe again. ;)

You can order an additional copy though and I buy it off you when I hop across the pond in march. delivery time of 3 weeks-ish is a bit too risky for me to order one in Europe and bring it with me as *your* most traveled book though I'm afraid...
