Hello, my charming library wizards! Welcome to a new week.
- If you were roaming the halls of New York Comic Con this weekend, I can only hope that: A. You stopped by the Tor Books booth for some rad giveaways and author signings and, B. You were dressed as Gort.
- Speaking of sci-fi, Cory Doctorow name-dropped our very own Talia Sherer in his Publishers Weekly article, "With a Little Help: Now at Your Library," discussing his experience with his "pay what you like" short story collection, With a Little Help.
"Throughout this experiment, Tor has been remarkably generous with advice and help, and this was no exception. Talia Sherer, Macmillan's library sales director, directed me to several librarians, and I tapped each of them. They were warm, and helpful, and blindingly organized about delivering advice.
"...after three months, Ingram has now listed the book in its catalogue. And I've just finished an interview with ALA's Booklist announcing the book's availability, and many librarians have offered to help spread the word through their mailing lists."
- Fans of Mary Robinette Kowal's SHADES OF MILK AND HONEY will be ecstatic to hear that Tor plans to publish two more of her quasi-Regency fantasy sequels after, GLAMOUR IN GLASS! See the announcement here! We've received quite a few requests for GLAMOUR IN GLASS galleys, which unfortunately are not available, yet. But I read an unedited version of the manuscript and can promise that there is plenty of adventure and charm to look forward to!
- HarperCollins' Library master, Virginia Stanley is now on Twitter (@VStan523)!! Go bug her.
