It’s About Time Advance Sale Discount Ending Oct. 3
Hurry, hurry, hurry. The IT’S ABOUT TIME early ordering period, with early bird discount, is ending in just under two weeks according to MSR Publishing editor M. Scott Douglass. You have seen the inside galleys. They have been corrected and sent to the editors for final review. That means we are approaching the deadline to shut off the Advance Sale Discount price from the MSR Online Bookstore. . . . Advance Sales WILL expire October 3.
My story in this one is called “Curious Eyes,” about a time traveler, a chance encounter, and a good night in a Kansas City Bar. It’s a not very heavy science fiction story, from a long time ago when I was writing a fair bit of SF, and actually published in a general fiction magazine, in the December 1988 THE FICTION PRIMER. Nothing fancy, mind you, just plain folks, plain setting (well, maybe a little after-hours loneliness, cue in alto sax, a little brush work on the drum, but muted and sad-like, a rainy night outside — you know the scene), pleasant when it’s all over. Yes, I’ve written a few stories like that. Way back when-like. . . .
So think of “Curious Eyes” as a rarity, one of a kind I don’t write too much nowadays, but yours to savor in IT’S ABOUT TIME, and one to be had at a discount to boot — but only for the swift. For more information, pre-ordering press here.
