Correction... he showed up today and surprised me. I now have a few copies of this in stock. Should be cheaper than importing yourself.

Thanks guys! Just trying to do my part to get this series the attention it deserves. Of course, the ultimate would be to have all the books available signed....

Babylon 5 posted 22 July 2004 in Literature DiscussionBabylon 5 by Clarkesworld Books, Peralogue

Crusade was interfered with a lot by the network people. If you ever hear JMS talk about it, it's quite interested... and he was right. Left alone, he could have made a much better show. I have the show's scriptwriters bible around here somewhere.

I've read all the B5 books and I think there was only one that I didn't think was any good. I hate novelizations, so it was only because of my wife (she bought them) that I started reading them.

They were sellling these a few years ago along with different B5 scripts and signed magazines. I picked up a few, but I have no idea what I paid. I'll see if I can find out. I'll also check to see if I have doubles of anything.

Has anyone read the B5 Security manual?

Gay marriage: for or against its legalization in the US? posted 28 July 2004 in Off-Topic DiscussionGay marriage: for or against its legalization in the US? by Clarkesworld Books, Peralogue

I don't mind this at all. I have several friends who are gay and don't see why they should be denied the advantages and disadvantages of marriage. (The big disadvantage is you pay more in taxes. The advantages far outweigh this, like healthcare, inheritance, etc)

Quote: "drosdelnoch":2urswew6
Chasing the kids Clarkesworld? Is that for money that they owe you, to get the car keys back or just for fun? lol As far as I know you spend years ferrying them about as a cabbie, then just as theyre getting ready to leave they nick the car and you dont get to go where you want. Hours of fun. lol[/quote:2urswew6]

They are still young (1 and 4) so most of the chasing is either a game or an attempt to get my CDs back. The younger does like the car keys though. This does not bode well for the future.

For a US Reader -- posted 07 August 2004 in The Warrior ProphetFor a US Reader -- by Clarkesworld Books, Peralogue

WOW! I'm quite flattered by all this talk and really glad that people appreciate the work I've been doing. You've made my week!

I don't care for ads on sites either. The look of this place is very nice, clean, and consistent. Ads would muck it up. Still, there are ways within the forums to do things. You could set up a special "support our forum" topic with affiliate links. You could co-sponsor contests. Review a book? Link to it. etc etc Text links can also be made low key, or you could simply use the book covers as direct links for purchase.

One of our best affiliates is Malazan.com. Most of you have been there, so you've seen how they've included us. On the flip side, I've mentioned them to a lot of people and occasionally put them in the monthly note I have on the web site. I also changed my sig there to point to their affiliate link. A significant portion of their sales come from my link.

Anyhow, if I'd be quite honored to be connected to this place in some official way. I've already gotten my ego boost from you guys, so if this doesn't happen... no problem. I'll keep selling these books and posting when I can think of something worthwhile to say.

Thanks all!

Any plans for a hardcover edition of The Warrior Prophet posted 28 August 2004 in The Warrior ProphetAny plans for a hardcover edition of The Warrior Prophet by Clarkesworld Books, Peralogue

Anyone know if the publishers are really using Amazon as an indicator? Seems to me that they should well-know how many copies they've sold and how many copies were returned before the second book in any series is published.

I know they don't monitor us... but Warrior Prophet was one of our top sellers in August.

What subgroup of speculative fiction do you prefer? posted 06 September 2004 in Literature DiscussionWhat subgroup of speculative fiction do you prefer? by Clarkesworld Books, Peralogue

Primarily science fiction and fantasy, with some horror. I tend to stay away from novelizations, rpg based, gorey, and young adult. Favorite is based on mood.

Any horror fans here? posted 25 September 2004 in Literature DiscussionAny horror fans here? by Clarkesworld Books, Peralogue

I like horror, but I've never been able to get into Stephen King. I've always leaned towards authors that were off that path. I've read a lot of Lovecraft and really like authors like Brian Keene, Tim Lebbon, Gary Braunbeck and Douglas Clegg.
