Joey and Spyder and eBay and Other Things

Yesterday, I wrote 873 words and finished the prologue of Joey Lafaye. It's a very different prologue than the one I'd originally planned for this book, the one I was calling "The Locksmith of Elfland's Daughter." So, now I have a prologue and one chapter, which come to 41 ms. pages. I spoke with my lit agent yesterday, and I'll be sending her the first part of the novel as soon as I've written Chapter 2, which I hope to write over the next week or so.

I have a dental appointment this afternoon, and it has everything out of whack.

Yesterday, the postman brought me my comp copies of the new mmp 4th edition of Silk (ISBN 978-0-451-45668-7). Generally, I am very happy with how this book turned out. It should have been in bookshops now since early December, so please pick up a copy. The mmp of Murder of Angels will be along in April. Meanwhile, here are the links and ISBNs for the other new mass-market paperbacks:

Threshold (978-0-451-46124-7)

Low Red Moon (978-0-451-46164-3)

Oh, the mail also brought a copy of the Swedish f&sf zine, Mitrania (No. 3, 2007), which has a story about my fiction. I assume it says nice things, but, alas, I cannot read Swedish.

We have now begun the latest round of eBay auctions. Copy X of the previously unavailable lettered-edition of Tales from the Woeful Platypus has already been listed (which comes with my first beanie paisley platypus), along with a copy of the trade hardback of Frog Toes and Tentacles. Much, much more to be listed over the next couple of days, so do keep your eyes peeled (as they say).
