    Does anyone know what free books will be given away this year? Also, what upcoming book will be given away this year? If I'm not mistaken, it's probably going to be Soul Key but I could be wrong.

    Whatever Pocket is trying to clear their warehouses of, I would guess. *shrug*

    You mean, "what upcoming book will be put on sale early this year."

    Yeah sorry. But I could wish for it for free no?

    To rephrase then, what upcoming book will be on sale early? Probably Soul Key if I'm not mistaken.

    One book making an early debut at Shore Leave will be my first original novel, The Calling. (Sneak peek: read the first chapter on my web site.)

    Can't shed any light on the giveaway question, unfortunately.

    And I hope everyone attending Shore Leave remembers to come to The Comedy Roast of Keith DeCandido Friday night at 7pm in the Hunt room.

    Ah, Shore Leave...really enjoyed the experience last year. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it this year.

    I'm looking forward to being there. I just wish I weren't leaving early Sunday.

    Every year I keep telling myself I should go. Every year I forget until it's too late. I would love to meet all the authors, but the other stuff I don't have much interest in. I think I made this exact post last year.

    So who'll play floor reporter for us this year?

    Oh, I'll live. When I told DH for how long I'd be away (I have a trip on the front end of the week,) he said, "WHAT!?" :lol:

    I'll be there as always. I'll take photos this year with my new digital camera. Sorry I've been away for a bit. Got caught up reading the Destiny Trilogy (awesome) and am now trying to get a handle on what books I've got so I can stop buying duplicates by accident. :rolleyes:

    I'm already excited for 2010's offerings, and eager for the rest of 2009. It's such an excellent time to be a fan of Trek literature.

    I can't make it but will be checking in all weekend long for updates, especially tonight after I get home from my dance party to see what's coming up for 2010.

    What time (British Summer Time) are the updates likely to be on around here? I'm desperate to update my list and know what's coming.

    Last year the Pocket Books panel was on around 2AM British time, on Friday night/Saturday morning
