Now, here's the key question: is the book in Ottawa yet? Anyone here seen it?

but I can't get the third, if those are even the two minor ones you were thinking of.
Wow. Actually neither of those is among the names I noticed. I forgot all about


So keep looking.

Oh, Mere Mortals. My bad, sorry. I thought you meant Mere Anarchy. (It's the "Mere" that threw me.) Which was reported on Psi Phi as having had its orders through Diamond cancelled last week.
Oh fuck me sideways, really?
Yes, really.

Well, charmed as I am by the notion of spending yet more time poring over a list of fictional characters in the hope that one of them will ring a distant bell, I think I'll just wait for someone who can be bothered to help me out by identifying them, thanks.

Re: A Singular Destiny review thread (possible spoilers)

In the casualty list in question, three are characters we've seen on screen, one is a name we've seen before, and one is someone from one of my previous books. I'll say who behind the box....

In the version I have in manuscript, there are two other names I recognized, both SCE-related:
Were they removed from the final list?

^ The first name was removed and your assumption regarding the second name is false.

I take it that the second name is named after one of your fellow contributors to The Chronic Rift?

Okay, thanks. But could all those people with the same family name be relatives of the character I thought it was?

Ya know Kevin, I live in NY and it's never a problem for me to get the books. However, I happen to have an apt here in Jerusalem where I am staying for a few months visiting friends and family and I am still getting my stuff in a timely matter.
It may be a little harder to find Trek books (this one in particular) in New York, Man of Steel. I just posted this in another thread:

This may be a bad sign...

I noticed that Borders' website page for A Singular Destiny lists the book as "available online only." This is separate from its status as a pre-order, so it looks as though the book, even when it comes out, will not be sold at Borders B&M stores (further ensuring that I won't be shopping at Borders for much longer).

No indication on Barnes & Noble's website that they won't be selling it in stores, though no stores in the New York area appear to have them in stock - that could just be that the books haven't made their way to the stores yet, though...

I don't know what Borders thinks they're doing. This was the same message they had for Errand of Fury Book 3, and it doesn't seem like they intend to carry Shards and Shadows in store, either. Not putting new releases into their stores (even if its just the less mainstream titles that are being sacrificed) hardly seems to be the way to bring customers in.

Yeah, I guess they're targeting hardcovers...which are a SIN to buy at a B&M these days.
