You are perhaps not aware that Cuttlefish, by Dave Freer is now available for sale from all of the Usual Suspects, including your favorite indie bookstore. Having now been made aware of this fact, you should forthwith go out and obtain a copy. I had the great good fortune to read an advance edition of Cuttlefish, and enjoyed it immensely. I mean, really -- steam-powered submarines! Drowned London! airships! cross-and-double-cross! What's not to love?
This is a reminder -- because I know how you are -- that fellow Mainer James A. Burton's fantasy Powers is on the shelves now. Genre-wise, Powers is contemporary mythic fantasy, with a side order of hard-boiled detective. Think Zelazny crossed on Butcher and you won't be far wrong. I should also mention that Mr. Burton is a very close friend to Maine author James A. Hetley. Fans of Mr. Hetley's work should by all means check out Mr. Burton.
This has been mentioned elsewhere, but it's worth saying again: On September 4, 2012 (that's less than two months from now!), Audible will be releasing, simultaneously, every damn' one of the Liaden Universe® novels ever published -- Agent of Change through Dragon Ship! One million, five hundred thousand words of Liad, four Sequences, four narrators, no waiting!
