Today was a day of getting rid of obstacles, mostly. The printer heads needed to be cleaned, in order to print out the shipping labels; and supplies to wrap the books and tape the packages needed to be acquired. But all the postage is bought and all the books are signed. I have about fifty or so packages to prepare, and I am hoping that I can do it all tomorrow. HOPING, not quite expecting. But the books should start going out early this week.
PS: The pre-order store for TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION is now closed. If you want a print book, I’m afraid you’ll have to order it from Amazon.
No spoilers, but: it does not suck. And, yeah, it’s a horror show. There’s one particular scene which will establish that, once and for all.

I am now working out with the editor whether we need her to do a third, or whether the usual system of me taking a look, my wife talking a look, we order a proof and I take another look, and the post-publication revelations of every typo that missed the previous eight to ten rounds of scrutiny will suffice. Either way, TALES FROM THE FERMI RESOLUTION is ahead of schedule. So much so that I need to get cracking on the sampler.

I have been assured by the Internet that buying THUNDARR THE BARBARIAN is absolutely a business expense for anyone writing post-apocalyptic high fantasy fiction. Alas, the Amazon gift card haul this Christmas was… well, not having any of my immediate family in the hospital from COVID was the best Christmas gift of all*. So, to the Wish List it goes. I’ll get to it eventually.
*Straight up. My folks were really lucky last year.
Via @zamoose. The Netflix MCU shows actually would work well in Sony’s Spider-verse thingy; they’re lower-powered, for one thing. Punisher or Kingpin make more sense as antagonists for Spider-Man than they would have for Iron Man or Captain America; you could believe that Spidey would have real trouble taking one of them down. As for continuity? …Who the hell cares about continuity? The comics sure don’t!
