ACME Delivery


December 24th, 2015

04:18 am - A few lines.

I'd mention that I'd been “that guy with the paper book” at times in the comments on a blog post about changes in publishing. A fellow going by the name of FlyingMike then came up with this exchange, which I find amusing:

“Did you see that Minotaur in 21B?”
“Don’t be specist. He fits in the seat so he can ride to Phoenix.”
“No, he’s reading a paperback – I mean, on real paper!”
“What?! I gotta go see this!”

06:36 am - An Unusual Upcoming Appearance - and a non-appearance

Back in 2007 I went to LibertyCon in Chattanooga, TN and did a number of deliveries. ACME had not been back there until this year, but, well, things didn't go as planned for me. ACME was there, but I really wasn't. The weather and other things disagreed with me, and let's just say that I was stuck in the hotel room for the weekend and didn't get out at all.

Deliveries still went on, though not as numerous as in 2007. Some human did them, and they were generally well received, I am told. I've also been informed that John Ringo can really ham things up - as if that's any news.

Once home again, I tried to check on how things went without me. Generally no news is good news - no complaints. There was one mention, and it was positive, from author Sarah Hoyt. She liked the stuffed "sad" puppy that was delivered to her. In a reply to her blog entry that mentioned it, someone politely explained my absence. And then this stunning reply happened:

accordingtohoyt: Sigh. I LIKE the ox. (He shall appear in the next shifter book.)

I have no idea of when this book will appear, what the title will be, or anything else. Just that one line is all I know about it. I imagine any appearance I have, if it survives editor(s), will be a very minor thing. Still, I am most pleasantly surprised by this. You can bet I'll be buying that book. I hope I get to deliver something to Sarah Hoyt again - and get the book signed.

[ADDENDUM]: The title will be "Bowl of Red" and it should appear at the end of the year or early next.
