Dead Media Edition

Here's the opening of Evening's Empires in punched card form, via this nifty site. Any day now, according to my publishers, ebooks of Evening's Empires and In the Mouth of the Whale will be available for readers in the US. In fact, you can already buy ebooks of In the Mouth of the Whale for Nook readers and from iTunes. Other formats will follow soon, although apparently there are Problems that haven't yet been fixed. Back in the day, many common problems with data-handling could be solved by picking the cards off the floor after you'd dropped them or a card sorter had spat them out, and shuffling them back into order. Life probably wasn't easier back then, but when the interface between the world and the net throws a glitch, it sometimes it seems that it was.

Glad to hear they're coming to the US!

I broke down and bought an imported copy of E.E., despite the carbon footprint on shipping it over. But I'll get the aws version as well.

Wow! I'm so happy about that! I've been going back and looking at your work, and I may have to read everything you've done!

So glad about Mouth and Evening will be on Kindle soon... those Covers are Really Nice by the way...

Like Brian, I already broke down and ordered a hard copy from the U.K. of Evening Empires, not to mention Mouth of the Whale. "Snail mail" beat electronic delivery, no contest.
