Quicksilver & Shadow by Charles de Lint

Subterranean Press has received QUICKSILVER & SHADOW by Charles de Lint. We should have our copies within the next two weeks. This book is the second in a projected three volume set of de Lint’s early stories. The first volume was A HANDFUL OF COPPERS.

Speaking of Subterranean Press, their magazine, Subterranean Magazine, should be headed to the printer soon. It’s been delayed by other projects. Given the lineup (GRRM, Lansdale, Crowther, etc), it should be worth the wait.

PS Publishing, Subterranean Press, and Website Update

Still sick, but the updates keep coming in…

Update from PS Publishing

It appears that three new books will start shipping next week. Shipping time from the UK is typically 2-3 weeks so we should have these early April. The books are:

* THE DEVIL DELIVERED by Stephen Erikson (in Signed Hardcover and Signed Paperback)
* LITTLE MACHINES by Paul McAuley (in Signed Slipcased Hardcover and Signed Hardcover)
* DON’T TURN OUT THE LIGHT ed. by Stephen Jones (in Signed Slipcased Hardcover and Signed Hardcover)

Just in from Subterranean Press:

* POSING AS PEOPLE by Orson Scott Card Signed Hardcover with CDs
* ZOMBIE JAM by David Schow Signed Hardcover

I’ve been toying with our website lately and replaced most of the design and logo with something I thought looked better. It’s just the first phase of several updates that will include several customer service modules to the site. Things like order tracking and wish lists aren’t functions the third party cart we use supports. I have to build them myself. But first… I get rid of this cold.

News from a sick person

I’m fighting a cold again today, but I just wanted to get out some news I’ve received in the last few days…

Just in from Hill House Publishers:

The Cat’s Pajamas by Ray Bradbury Signed Limited Slipcased Hardcover

The Confusion by Neal Stephenson Signed Limited Slipcased Hardcover (limited number of matching numbers for Quicksilver also available)

I have to get some more pictures of these books on the web site. Hill House does amazing work with their limited editions. Top quality materials and very well designed.

HarperCollins says that they will publish some signed first editions of books that are scheduled for this year. These are typically the trade hardcovers with tipped-in sheets. Here are the ones I know about:

THUD! by Terry Pratchett
Anansi Boys by Neil Gaiman
Shaman’s Crossing by Robin Hobb

and one final announcement…

All our copies of November Mourns by Tom Piccirilli will be signed. Tom has graciously agreed to sign for us.
