The Ammoite Violin & Others Update

Update from Subterranean Press:

"We received the first copies of Caitlín R. Kiernan’s excellent new collection, The Ammonite Violin & Others, last week, and noticed a glaring error on the dust jacket, one big enough that we decided to have the djs reprinted rather than let the books out in the world with the error.

We’re expecting the books to be ready to pick up on July 13 or so, and will be shipping copies immediately after they land in our warehouse. Our apologies for the delay to everyone who preordered a copy, but we’d rather have things take a week or two longer than anticipated in order to get everything right."

It'll be alright. It's good of them to care that much about your book. You heard Peter Straub quote the Doubleday woman: "I remember when we thought of our books as a sort of art..." (or something to that effect)

I'm glad you were at Readercon. You were a good panelist.

I had a question I meant to ask you. Do authors really make any money from digital books? I can't remember that subject being broached in your journal yet, so thought I'd ask. I just purchased an e-reader (after swearing I would never give up real books, but the Nook I got has come in very handy with long hospital visits after my Mom was in a car accident. It's allowed me to read book after book after book) and that got me to thinking that I hope authors get to at least make some decent money off the digital revolution.

You need to snag those misprinted copies and squirrel them away for a rainy day. Five years from now, sell them for twice as much: "RARE Misprint Ammonite Violin Anthology!"

YES indeed! I would love to have a few of those right now. Will Sub-press sell me some?

Good for auctions, indeed. It'd be interesting ephemera. (It may even be amusing, like the draft of Stephen King's 'Salem's Lot that accidentally referred to "peasant hunting.")

Welcome back home!
I hope it is cooler there, but I fear not. It is hot as heck here too.

How was the trip?
