Of course not, no one does. But would you like to get them to sign your book on the off chance that they will be simultaneously killed in a very famous and unique way, thus rendering the signatures valuable?  Given the high likelihood of this happening, you’d be crazy not to!!! Come to Alamosa Books on June 23 where the bitter rivals that make up James S.A. Corey will be speaking, signing, and making cruel jokes about each other’s expanding […]

Well, stuff I wrote is.  So that seems pretty cool.  I’m curious why they didn’t use our awesome Dociu cover.

And a huge thank you to anyone who voted for  us.  We are humbled by the support we’re getting.  I mean, I was humble anyway, but Daniel could have used a little more humbling, and boy is he […]
