August 14

Right after I shared my schedule yesterday, I got an e-mail that turned me into a damned liar. Fandemic Dead has been pushed back to March 2022. I’ve updated the “Appearances” page of the site.

The collector’s edition of Deathless, the sequel to Pressure, is going to ship next month. It’s almost sold out from Earthling Publications, so act quickly if you want a copy!

Okay, you probably don’t need to act quickly. What happens with a book like this is that there’s a big rush of orders when it’s first announced. In the case of Deathless, it almost sold out, but not quite. So you think, “Well, if it’s ALMOST sold out, it’ll sell out any minute now!” But instead there’s a long dry spell, because the kind of people who buy these hardcover collector’s editions tend to pounce as soon as pre-orders go live.

As soon as the publisher announces that the books are ready to ship, the rest of the copies will quickly sell and that’ll be the end of it.

Therefore, at this particular moment in time, if you haven’t ordered it there’s no compelling reason for you to do so.

Not that I’m trying to dissuade you from going to http://earthlingpub.com/js_deathless.html.
