Elizabeth Bear's Hammered, Scardown [review website spellchecker issue corrected--eb], and Worldwired (Bantam Spectra) were released in January and July respectively with the third due in November, but consider all three as a single 1000-page mass market paperback debut novel.

And ETA: The Chains that You Refuse is available for pre-order on Amazon.
Pretty good week, what?

And there was also a cute little comment to the effect of being pleased I was winning the name-recognition wars with the flower arrangement book and the Santa mysteries, though I'm positive they're perfectly nice Santa mysteries and/or flower arrangements, and if you like that sort of thing there they are.
Livejournal is censoring me when I try to be amusing. But who could blame it?
