A quick spruik, with electronic bonus offerings

30 11 2013

It’s been a while since I’ve had anything of substance to report … or perhaps it would be more accurate to say it’s been a while since I’ve had the time to report anything of substance, for what with one thing and another, I have been as planar as a drinking lizard of late. This time-poverty still persists, so I’ll restrict myself to a couple of pertinent and pithy announcements.

Spruik commences:


1. The Baby Teeth: Bite-Sized Tales of Terror anthology, edited by Dan Rabarts and Lee Murray and with contributions from many of the leading lights of NZ speculative fiction, is now available in paperback and e-book formats from Marie Henderson’s Paper Road Press. I’ve only had the time, thus far — see above — to dip into a couple of these morsels, but it has all the hallmarks of an excellent set of stories, and all proceeds from sales of the book are going to the Duffy Books in Homes charity (a NZ effort to boost reading among children), so it also has ‘good cause’ stamped all over it. [My understanding is that, although the only purchase option on the website is ‘paperback’ at $NZD25 plus postage, if you buy the hard-copy you also get the electronic versions thrown in.]


2. Speaking of ‘buy the hard-copy, get the electronic versions for free’, Liz Bright of Peggy Bright Books has announced a pre-holiday special deal: purchase any of The Whale’s Tale, Rare Unsigned Copy, or Light Touch Paper, Stand Clear from the PBB website (priced from $AUD19.95 to $AUD26.95, including postage within Australia), and you’ll also receive a bonus CD featuring e-book versions (in pdf, epub and mobi) of the entire PBB catalogue (ie including also The Gordon Mamon Casebook and Flight 404). It would be, I would dare to suggest, a means by which one might acquire two stocking-fillers for the price of one … The deal runs out on December 23rd, so if you’re interested, you’ll need to act before then.

As is customary in such situations, if you believe either of the above may be of interest to those around you, please let them know. Spruik done.
