First, congratulations to John Scalzi. For those of you late to the party, John won the Hugo award for best novel for Redshirts this past weekend.
Second, congratulations to John for having one of the most successful personal blogs, running 15 years strong. Which leads us nicely to the latest compendium taken from the blog's many, many words. We've shipped all preorders for The Mallet of Loving Correction, so if you've ordered one, it should arrive ere long. If you haven't ordered one, now's not a bad time, as John basks in the glow of his shiny new award.
Catch and Release is the new Lawrence Block title we're focusing on as this week nears its close, and will likely be focusing on as next week begins. It's acclaimed (by Publishers Weekly and Booklist, no less) and popular (we have more distributor orders than we can fill). We are holding back copies for individual orders as long as we can. Once we ship the initial wave of Catch, we'll probably release any final copies into the large bookstore and distribution chain. The smart money, if you want to be guaranteed a copy, is to order through us.
