Well, so far so good so far as international shipping is concerned.

Orders are coming in, books are being weighed, packed, and shipped.



Assuming that there are no problems en route, or with customs on the other ends, maybe this will fly and we can make all our fans overseas happy. So keep those emails and orders coming.

Oh, and speaking of autographs, my friend Diana Gabaldon dropped by the JCC the other day, and signed a few more stacks of books for us. So we have replenished our supply of OUTLANDER titles (have you guys been watching the series? it's amazing). And Diana also signed some hardcovers of one of the anthologies she's in, SONGS OF LOVE AND DEATH. While the supply lasts, we can offer copies of that one with four signatures: the two editors (me and Gardner), plus Diana Gabaldon and Neil Gaiman.



Happy reading!

I'm afraid I have an extremely low opinion of Diana Gabaldon and Outlander. But then, I'm Scottish and a historian…

Diana has a huge huge fan base in Scotland.

Yes: unfortunately, a lot of people here are extremely ignorant about history and buy into a tartanised shortbread tin version, of which hers is a version.

If you want to read a decent historical novel set in the same time-period, I recommend Neil Munro's The New Road, even if it was written in the early 20C. The author was a Highlander, and it has a thoroughly vile real-life villain in the form of Simon Fraser of Lovat, a man whom I suspect would get on well with the Boltons and Freys. (In fact, Hogarth's portrait of Lovat before execution is one of the creepiest things I've ever seen: it exudes evil. He's like a fat version of Walder Frey.)
