Whisky deathmatch is sadly delayed yet again by a bit of a rush to get through the copy edit of Red Country (which has just appeared) in time to be incorporated into proof copies, all aggravated by the sudden death of my monitor. Sad. But it was a pretty good innings. About five years, I think, and there’s a new one already on the way! Happy! And it’s bigger and better than the dead one! Very happy! Until, of course, it turns up and there’s some unanticipated compatibility issue and I can’t use it. Very sad. In other news, the publication date for Red Country has moved in the US. In the UK it remains the same, 18th October, but those hard working folks at Orbit US have pulled out all the stops to bring their pub date forward, and will be bringing it to our American cousins just five paltry days later, on 23rd October. Celebrate, Americans!
