Yup, and still lots to do. That's why I need The Madison Getaway.

I put a thing down on my topic about the Tom Smario book. But let me say it again, Knuckle Sandwiches is a terrific book...

^I think I'll be picking up EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE. You must be doing something right over there, Deborah.

^One tiny nitpick: the ordering text for All-Star Zeppelin Adventure Stories reads "hipping and handling." I'm sure there's a joke in there about this one being cool and retro-cutting-edge, but it's too late at night for me to think of one just now

Thanks...I'll get it fixed.

Okay, a quick update here on the WP schedule...
Polyphony 4, American Sorrows and Knuckle Sandwiches are now available...the website still says "coming soon" and "preorder here" but I'm shipping those now.
Here's the link:
There's been a slight delay on Weapons of Mass Seduction (my fault, not Lucius') so that one will not be available until October 28 (weekend of World Fantasy Con).
SPECIAL OFFERS: Free shipping on orders of $50 or more (it gets automatically added in on the Paypal buttons, but I will refund the shipping on qualifying orders).
BUT THAT's NOT ALL: If you want to send any Wheatland Press title as a gift, just put a note in the PayPal comment box and I will include free gift wrap and a tasteful card appropriate to the occasion.
