Kenya!

I haz a finished cover!

Geez, busy has prevented me from sharing some excitin' news: My editor just sent Transcendence off to the printer! Here's the final cover for the hardcover edition, coming out in TWO WEEKS:


Click the image to see the full-size dustjacket. Click here to see sample chapter stuff.

And check out that quote just above my name, deep in shadow: Jack McDevitt read it and liked it and gave me a blurb (full quote inside the flap). Woohoo! Thank you, Jack, and thanks to Kij, George, Jim, and Ann for their kind words (and to A.J., who passed away a few years ago).

If you're in town on Friday, November 5, come by the University of Kansas student union building, where the Jayhawk Ink bookstore will host my book launch from 4:00pm - 5:30pm. I'll host a reception at my place afterward. Spread the word!

Oh, and you can pre-order now from Hadley Rille Books at a big discount (for either the trade paperback or the hardcover) and get free shipping. Bargain!

Best,
Chris
