I'll be starting on the design on this early next week. J.K. Potter is doing the cover art. I'll post art, layout teasers, etc. when they're available. The book should be out by Readercon, where Lucius is guest o' honor.

I can't remember if Lucius has already posted the toc somewhere, so here it is:

INTRODUCTION BY CHINA MIÉVILLE
STARS SEEN THROUGH STONE
EMERALD STREET EXPANSIONS
LIMBO
LIAR’S HOUSE
DEAD MONEY
DINNER AT BALDASSARO’S
ABIMAGIQUE
THE LEPIDOPTERIST
DAGGER KEY
STORY NOTES (in slipcased edition only)

Looking forward to being teased, Bob.

Lucius just loves to give the finger :-)

Even though I've read much of it, and will have bought some of it more than once, it'll be fun to have another one bundle of Lucius' stories collected and scowling at my other books.

It's available from PS Publications. They have an online presence. Google em and check out their catalogue. Dagger Key is available for pre-order. They have lots of other cool stuff.

Many of PS's titles are also available through Shocklines.com, a reputable online retailer of fantasy and horror titles.

PS Publications is here: http://pspublishing.co.uk/

And if you don't already subscribe to _Postscripts_, you should. Not just good stories, but in a lovely format too.

Now if I could just get Mr. Crowther et al. to send more review copies...

I don't subscribe to Postscripts, but I did order issue #10, the forthcoming horror issue. It has a story by Lucius and a heck-of-a-lot of other cool writers. Its line-up and page quantity give it the appearance of an anthology more than a magazine.

Or at least we could ask him to go with a book that will cost $30 or less...

True. It was only $50 :-)

At any rate the Dagger Key will be like avoiding watching a dozen or so movies.

I'll try posting the title page again this weekend. And if that works, then maybe a sample layout from a story. And I'll have the cover to post soon too.

Now that's weird. The title pages I posted a while ago are showing up. I'm using Safari right now, was using Firefox. Was I the only one who didn't see them? Am I going crazy?

I've just learned that China's mother is terminal, and that he may not finish the intro in time for Readercon. If he doesn't I'll have fifty copies of a paperback edition to sell at the con, minus the intro, which will make them rarities of a sort.

Keep in mind the book won't be an actual item for some weeks yet.

I'm beginning to get worried about this book: I ordered my copy in February. I chose Credit Card payment by mail, and sent a letter to PS Publishing with card number, expiry date and such.
Since then, nothing. The amount was not debited from my account, and Peter Crowther doesn't answer my e-mails.
Did the other buyers get billed?
I'm going to be away until July 24, and I don't want the book to be OP and my order mislaid.
