If you are a popular blogger, or if you review things for something, Subterranean Press wants to give you an ARC!

The ARCs include:

New Amsterdam (Elizabeth Bear);
D.A. (Connie Willis);
The Merchant and the Alchemist’s Gate (Ted Chiang)
To the Dark Star (Robert Silverberg);
Dreadful Skin (Cherie Priest);
The Shadows Kith and Kin (Joe R. Lansdale);
Getting to Know You (David Marusek);
and You’re Not Fooling Anyone… (John Scalzi)

Three ways to succeed as an entertainer:

1. Don't be boring.
2. Don't underestimate your audience.
3. Try to look like you're having fun up there. Hell: try to have fun.

And speaking of fun, I've already been up for an hour and a half today, and shoveled out a pile of email I was ignoring.

I am virtupus! And now, shower and coffee and then back to the CEM for me. Yay, smutty wolf book. Yay!


Hmmm....wonder what would constitute a popular blog or journal?
Ask Bill!
*feels really dim*

What's an ARC? I looked it up on the acronym finder but there are 250 acronyms - and I don't think it's:

American Red Cross
AIDS Related Complex
Address Resolution Client (part of ARP)
Archive (File Name Extension) Arcade
Arcadian (linguistics
Anomalous Retinal
Ames Research Center
Australian Research Counci.....
Advance Reading Copy. AKA, bound galley.

An uncorrected proof without cover art, etc. For use by reviewers.
Ah thank you! This business baffles me, sometimes. Theres so much I don't know.
If I'm not mistaken, did you just post a Smothers Brothers subject line? I think you're officially my favorite LJer of the day now :-)

Congrats on the book deal, by the way!!!
It is indeed!
Hee. "Heavily traveled blog."

I wish. Not that I have time to read and review stacks of books anyway. But free books is always good.
::wishes his blog was more popular!::

I'm soooooo looking forward to New Amsterdam, you have no idea! Well, actually, you probably do.
Virtupus = infectiously well-behaved?
Gee i wish i could get free books too.... Wait a minute! I'm a gen-urine book reviewer! I almost forgot!.. typedytypetype.. I can write the New Amsterdam one now... It's Gr-r-r-r-rr-eat!...

Well i suppose i should wait until i read it, or at least get it...

Shucks.. Second thoughts are hell..

Stacking the deck?
Connie Willis. There is a god.
