Since an attempted-delivery note alerts me to the information that a certain collection is now, as they say, a ‘thing’, and since said thing can it seems now be purchased from the publisher’s website and from Amazon (of which further details below), it behooves me to announce that Difficult Second Album: more stories of Xenobiology, Space Elevators, and Bats Out Of Hell will be launched, in some modest fashion, at 12 noon on Saturday 4th October, in the ‘Registration Area’ of Conflux X (which I am given to understand is also the ‘Launch Area’ for several books during the convention). Conflux, if you are going to be in Canberra for that weekend, is to be held at the Rydges Capital Hill, and I believe that book launches may be attended by members of the general public, without requiring a con membership. At the launch I’ll read a brief extract or two from the book; but, to add some much-needed spice to the occasion, Leife Shallcross and Edwina Harvey will also read from their own work in other recent Peggy Bright Books offerings.
If you’re keen for an e-copy of Difficult Second Album right now, it’s up on Amazon (mobi only), but I can particularly recommend the limited-time special offer that Peggy Bright Books is running until Monday 13th October, with your choice of e-book format (epub, mobi, pdf) for only $1.99AUD while the deal lasts. (You can also order the print book through the PBB website, if you’ve a mind to, of course.)
Message ends; you may go about your business.
