Even if this is going to be another season of futility for the Tigers,* Opening Day is one of my favorite days of the year. It’s also (if I do say so myself) a perfect time to grab yourself a copy of The Comic Book Story of Baseball!
*I saw two of their spring training games, and although they’re not going to be very good, they’ve got some young players to watch. And Miguel Cabrera looked like Miguel Cabrera again, so at least there’s the chance to watch one of the all-time greats continue his march toward 3000 hits and 500 home runs. Assuming he gets there (he’s got 2676 hits and 465 homers now), that will make him only the 7th player in the history of the game to do it.
Agents, it’s publication day for The Division: Broken Dawn in the US!* You know what to do…
*Amazon link included for convenience, but buy from your local shop when you can!
If you’re a Division fan, here’s a way to celebrate the launch of The Division 2! SitRep Radio is giving away 2 copies of my novel The Division: Broken Dawn, 2 copies of the lore book The World of The Division, and 2 groovy Division steel mugs.
Enter here! And if you miss out on the giveaway, The Division: Broken Dawn is out March 26!
It’s spring! I shoveled snow all morning, but it’s spring! The Tigers are going to lose 90+ games again this year, but it’s spring!
And the beginning of spring training, the dawn of a new baseball season, is the perfect time to get yourself a copy of The Comic Book Story of Baseball, right?
It’s Hugo Awards voting season once again! Every year I forget to tell anyone what work I’ve done that might be eligible, but 2019 is the year I break that streak. So, if you’re a Hugo voter, please keep in mind these two stories:
“The Atonement Path”
And if you’re not a Hugo voter, why not read them anyway? Thanks!
Yesterday I was griping because UPS couldn’t find my house (which is in plain sight, after all). Today they located me, and dropped off an unexpected delight: A set of Marvel Battle Lines trading cards with a custom binder!
Spiffy, no? Now I’m going to have to design a tabletop version of the game.
It’s that time of year, when we freelancers look back at what we accomplished and take a minute to feel good about everything instead of being stressed over what comes next. If you’ve read any of these things, thank you. (And if you haven’t, it’s not too late!)
