Rick Cook isn't a Goodreads Author (yet), but he does have a blog, so here are some recent posts imported from his feed.
Several people have asked about where to get my books. The Wiz series is still in print from Baen Books in two combined editions and one stand-alone volume. The combined books are "The Wiz Biz" (containing the first two novels) and "The Wiz Biz 2" (containing the next two.) The fifth volume, "The Wizardy Quested" is also available from Baen Books.
