My Second Blurb

Ian Sales (see link to his blog on my side-bar) has a book out.

Well, not quite. It’s actually a short story in book form, the first in a projected series. Its full title is Apollo Quartet 1: Adrift on the Sea of Rains.

Ian asked some people to provide comments to put on its cover. One of them was me! (We call it “blurbing.”)

It’s only the second time I’ve ever been asked to provide a blurb. The first was for David S Garnett’s Bikini Planet but he’d asked just about everyone he’d ever bought a story from to do it so that doesn’t really count. Those quotes took up three pages.

I don’t yet know if Ian has included the quote I gave him.

His book will be available in hard- and paperback and copies will be on sale at Eastercon.

    I have. It’s there on the back-cover of both the paperback and hardback 🙂

    Thanks for asking me.
    (It’ll be nice to have my name on a book cover again.)
