Was poking around Amazon.com today (well, the .ca version, but they’re essentially the same) looking for the release date of Under Cover of Darkness (it’s 6 February 2007, by the by) and I noticed the promotional copy that’s up for the book:
“FOURTEEN ORIGINAL SHORT STORIES OF SECRET AGENTS AND ORGANIZATIONS THAT HAVE LEFT THEIR MARK ON TIME AND SPACE…
From the true role of the Freemasons to Chronographers who steal pieces of time to an assassin hired by a group that reweaves the threads of history, here are fourteen imaginative tales of time and space and realms beyond our own-all watched over, preserved, or changed by those who work covertly under cover of darkness. “
That’s my story–the bit I put in bold–mentioned on AMAZON.COM! There’s also mention of my story on the back jacket copy. Now, that publisher’s promo copy on Amazon will likely be replaced eventually with a quote from Bookseller, or Publishers Weekely, or Kirkus, or Locus, etc. But for now, having my story mentioned like that–hightlighted in the publisher’s promotional material–is, well, pretty cool.
From what I’ve heard about the other stories in the collection, I think people will be really pleased with the book. I for one can’t wait to read all the other stories.
