In Paperback



These days, 'publication day' is a somewhat nebulous concept, but anyway, although it has been available from Amazon for a little while*, today is the official publication day of the mass-market paperback edition of In The Mouth of the Whale.

Happy birthday, little book.  I hope those who go looking for you are able to find you; and I hope that some people who didn't know about you will find you too.

For the curious, there's more information here, along with some extracts.

*Edit - have been reminded that you can also buy it here, with free worldwide delivery.

I'd love to ask a question, having finished the book last night:

Was the Horse's gender switch into a red-headed woman when boarding the Whale near the end of the book an intentional shift (and the switch back to male in the epilogue as well) or was that, perhaps, a proofing error from an earlier draft?

He's seen from the point of view of someone who has never seen a male of her kind. So she thinks that he is a she.
