Today is book day for my friend, Ian Tregillis, who also one wheeee of a good writer and a long-time occasional crit partner of mine. And the guy who does all my astrophysics math, because in his secret other life he's Doctor Ian Tregillis.
I have not read Ian's book, but I will be. Really soon. Because I have read a lot of his short fiction, and I expect this book to be awesome.
It's his first book. You could go buy it and be like, the first person on your block to discover an utterly awesome new writer.
