Just got a nice review from Publisher's Weekly for Prospero In Hell.

I'm not going to post it because they revealed more than someone who hasn't read the book should know, but...hey. How cool!

That's great! PW is surely big-time and a review there has some nice monetary implications. Librarians use it to choose what they buy.

Indeed. And it's a nice review...for the most part. ;-)

Grats! I'm about 2/3 of the way through it. Quite good!

That's the publishing world for you. You're 2/3 through and I haven't seen it yet.

Congratulations on the positive review in such a critical source for library purchases. Lots of readers get their start any given author through a library copy and then move to purchasing when they find they can't wait for the library to process the next volume in the series and get it on the shelf.

How much to reveal is always tricky for a reviewer. On one hand, it's important to give the reader a good feel for how the book works, especially if it includes some really excellent (or really problematic) elements On the other hand, it's important not to spoil the book for the reader, effectively destroying the enjoyment of discovery.

It is a difficult thing. This book is a whole series of unexpected events and revelations. I don't envy the reviews.

Mid-August, I believe.

We in the publishing business get our release dates by the uber-secret and elite method of...checking Amazon.com to see what date they have listed.

I can't wait to read this. One of the benefits of reading your husband's books was that I discovered the series books after they were out, so I was able to read one after the other. I finished Golden Age, and was out buying Phoenix within a few hours.

Oh, that is better, isn't it! Sorry about that. I have no control over how fast they publish it.;-)
