As of 9:27 EST, Barnes and Noble and Amazon don't have this pretty picture up yet ... but at least Amazon now considers the book "available." (Woohoo! don't tell mr. emptywheel the Tubes say I'm available!) I've been told I can get some copies in my grubby little paws on January 12, which is coming up really soon...though I'm going to drive across town and grab the copies from the printer myself. I imagine B&N and Amazon will take a few days longer to get their copies.
Which is to say it is at the printers. There'll be a website up, probably later this week. And more interesting news (about the book, and related issues) soon. Stay tuned.
But it has been an exciting process. And a lot of people have made incredible efforts to pull this together.
So hopefully you all--and more importantly, the big numbers of people who will just be tuning in as they wonder what Dick has to say about outing a CIA NOC--will grab a copy of the book. For regular readers of the blog, it'll be a review of some of my longer work, plus some profiles and updated work with a lot of welcome editing. For newbies to the story, hopefully we have created a something that introduces people to the story and the characters in 150 pages or less, with only the necessary deep weeds we all wallow in in Plameland (worry not though, there are footnotes). All of it without the crap that the media keeps throwing on this story.
Shew! And thanks to you all for keeping me company and setting me straight through this process. This blogging thing truly is a collective enterprise...
