Hal 4 release date

Unfortunately the Australian release of Hal Spacejock 4: No Free Lunch has been pushed back to the 2nd of June 2008. I know a lot of you are keen to get your hands on this new book, and I apologise for the delay.

To whet your appetite I've put a completely unauthorise mockup of the cover online, without any permission whatsoever. If they sue, arrest or chide me severely I'll blame you lot.

It's also time for another giveaway of the first book in the series. I'll do a draw in the next day or so, and you're welcome to share the contest link with friends/coworkers/family and also editors at UK and US publishers seeking a funny, ongoing SF series for their list ;-) (My agent is still shopping the series around, but these things take time.)

The link to the contest page is here. Duplicates are discarded automatically, so you're welcome to go ahead and submit again if you can't remember whether you entered or not. I'm expecting at least three* entries this time, so have at it.

* a slight understatement.

Saying Hi.

Nice to see you in Redroom, Simon.  I'm sure your latest release is going to be a winner.  Congrats on keeping this series going.  I'm saving up my pennies to pick up a few copies of the Hal books.  I'm a total SF geek.

Thanks for the comment, and

Thanks for the comment, and the support. I hope to keep the series going for as long as possible (or until I run out of ideas, and not a moment longer.)

We'll see ...
