It's officially summertime, which means the launch of Record of a Spaceborn Few is nigh. There have been some really lovely early reviews on Tor.com and the Forbidden Planet blog, and I'm over the proverbial moon about them. On to the particulars!Pre-order stuff Some exciting news about the UK hardback: the first print run will be a special edition! It features beautiful endpapers illustrated by the very talented Kiku Hughes. I couldn't be more stoked about how it turned out.This will be a limited edition, so once they're gone, they're gone. Anybody who pre-orders the hardback will get a copy of this one, so if you're keen to snag it, head over yonder. If you'd prefer the US edition, that's up for pre-order, too!Places I will be in the near future I'll be making the rounds across the pond in July. First, I'll be at Celsius 232 in Avilés, Spain from July 11-14. Later in the month, I'll be doing a whirlwind tour of the UK. The details: For those of you stateside, I'll be announcing US events later in the summer. Hope to see you around.
