I received some email today from Barth Anderson. His book, The Patron Saint of Plagues, will be published later this month, and it turns out that the name of a major character was misspelled. (not his fault) They weren’t able to have the book recalled (nearly 90% of the print run has already sold) but it will be corrected in later printings. It’s unfortunate that this should happen in his first novel, but great that it’s selling so well. Having read his short fiction, I’m eager to see what he can do with a novel. The reviews have been good.

Oh and he’ll be signing copies for us now too.
