Get yer free John Scalzi ebook here


Hey, we have a John Scalzi freebie you may be interested in.

Everyone who orders a print copy of his new collection, Miniatures, direct from SubPress, will receive a free copy of the ebook on publication. As you may remember, this title spans the years from 1991 to 2016, including a quarter century of Scalzi at his briefest and best, and features four never-before-printed stories, exclusive to this collection: “Morning Announcements at the Lucas Interspecies School for Troubled Youth,” “Your Smart Appliances Talk About You Behind Your Back,” “Important Holidays on Gronghu” and “The AI Are Absolutely Positively Without a Doubt Not Here to End Humanity, Honest.”

Ain't the cat illustration grand? It's a detail from the work that Natalie Metzger is doing for Miniatures, with one cartoonish illustration per story, in addition to a full-color cover.


Advance praise for THE PURLOINED POODLE

The Purloined Poodle by Kevin Hearne

Kevin Hearne's The Purloined Poodle is not lacking for early praise.

Via a service called NetGalley, that makes early copies of books available to reviewers, bloggers, and librarians, we've heard the following:

“Oberon and Atticus visit the set of the 2000 Christopher Guest film Best in Show. ... Dog lovers, urban fantasy readers, and of course all the KevinHearnenistas will want to get in line behind me to enjoy this latest selection.” (Daniel Graves)

“Oberon is the star of the show. ... Think cozy mystery meets Iron Druid, but with a canine protagonist, and you won't be far wrong. Expect the usual puns, conversations, meat- and dog-focus.” (Hilary Carter)

“Kevin Hearne's Oberon's Meaty Mysteries:  The Purloined Poodle is absolute perfection. With his inability to tell the difference between an hour and a week, his love of all things meat, and his unfailing ability to charm everyone he meets, Oberon is the perfect narrator.  I only hope that Hearne will provide up with more Meaty Mysteries from Oberon.” (Bryanna Zimmerman)

“This story was fabulous and sooo funny! I really hope that we get more stories from Oberon.” (Lara Jaskiewicz)

About the Book:

Joel-Brock Lollis's family has vanished into the labyrinthine Sporangium below a curious Georgia emporium, Big Box Bonanzas.
