Notes from New Sodom

... rantings, ravings and ramblings of strange fiction writer, THE.... Sodomite Hal Duncan!!

Thursday, February 01, 2007


And in all the Tiggerishness of the last post, I forgot to mention that, of course, the UK edition of INK is out officially this Friday. Apparently it's already in the shops (though I haven't popped in to take a look). Anyway, that means I shall very probably be celebrating -- which means a few drinks in Stravaigin from 8:00 onwards tomorrow night. All welcome.

And just to put the cherry on the top, I got me first review link through, from Pat's Fantasy Hotlist, and it's rather a positive reaction. :)

The Book of All Hours is a mind-blowing feat of ambition and imagination, written by a master storyteller with a "take no prisoners" attitude who's not afraid to experiment.

Out on Friday? As in this Friday? As in today? Damn that Amazon for telling me Feb 27! Looks like a trip to the shops for me.

Yep, today, indeedy. Feb 27 is the release date for the US edition (which I just got me first copies of through the post).

I've heard from a few people who've spotted the UK HB in their local Borders / Waterstones. So it should be available.

You are the most rock n' roll writer I know, Hal! On tv, fans in clubs, getting into fights at WFC (wow - that's how rumours start! Ok, getting dropped by publishers at least then...) these are all the signs that you are hardcore!

What kind of mischief are you planning for that thing in London? Is it just a quick trip? You should try and get a reading in Fopp. I have the mobile number of a girl that does their events, I think. For bands, at least. I don't know if they do books - but they might!

Any plans to do some signings Hal in Scotland? I know Goldsboro Books are offering editions, but I'd rather get one in person and also a scribble on Sonnets For Orpheus at the same time.

Ach, a late response you may well miss, Raithrover: Afraid there's nothing organised at the moment in terms of signings. If anything pops up I'll post about it for sure though.
