I can't see a thread about this - what is this upcoming James Swallow book about?
If I recall, it was (as seems to happen a lot lately) only a working title and not the final title.
And I can't remember reading anything about plotdetails yet.
There is a thread about it.
The only other info from that thread: It's a standalone set before David Mack's trilogy.
BTW: Has there been any information what it means that the book has vanished from the S&S site (Amazon still has it listed, but for March 2013 instead of December 2012).
Actually, that's pretty much going to be the final title.
Ah, guess I was wrong. Oops. In any case, good look with writing, I'm always looking forward to more Trek.
Blogged some more about this Here...
Thanks for sharing (what you could, anyway).
So it actually follows on from Cold Equations, then? Interesting.
Ebook only? Ewwww.
Wow I'll have to get this!
Yeah, this certainly sounds very interesting.
Chronologically speaking, that is. It's not like a direct sequel/coda or anything. Originally, it was actually going to come out around now and be set just before Dave's trilogy, but once S&S decided to move the release date back, I revised the story to account for...stuff.
A connection to Generations? Could be interesting. I'm intrigued. I hope it continues the theme of mortality that Generations had and the Nexus provided an escape from.
This sounds like it could be pretty good. I've been very reluctant to jump aboard the eBook bandwagon, but I may take the plunge and get myself an iPad early next year, and so I'd probably just go ahead and make the switch.
Have you ever read an eBook?
Every time you read an E-book, a bookstore clerk loses their job.
Then I've been putting entire stores out of business. Kewl shit!
I don't think that's true. Last time I was in a B&N, I saw jigsaw puzzles, stuffed animals and other toys, board games, stationary, greeting cards, wrapping paper, gift-y things like wall plaques, desk items and the like... not to mention their coffee shop/baked goods area.
Not to mention that B&N stores sell Nook e-book readers. When I go to the local B&N store, they're always promoting the Nook in their front window and displays.
Indigo in Canada, B&N's local version, has been doing the same.
Briefly, any book stores that survive are having to transition from selling books only to selling anything book-related, whether items or experences.
Some of those stores are still managing to make a go of it with the actual books, I'm noticing. Although the experiences of weekly workshops in those bookstores is certainly helping matters in several instances.
