Reviews of The End of Earth and Sky are beginning to trickle in. I have the particular honour to call your attention to two:

Sherwood Smith offers a fine and perceptive (and favourable) review on Book View Cafe:

‘New Discoveries — The End of Earth and Sky’

Jonathan Moeller reviews it on his own blog:

‘The End of Earth & Sky, by Tom Simon’

Encouraging news, to be sure.

    I think you may have answered this before, but I can’t find it, and so I beg your indulgence: How can one obtain a print hardcopy? I remain, sadly, one of the continually e-readerless.

    • Unfortunately, you can’t — yet. I have the book typeset and ready to send to CreateSpace, but I need two additional elements before I can release it: the map (which I also need for the ebook of Book II) and a wraparound version of the cover.

      I’m hoping to get these things ready some time in March, health (mine and Sarah Huntrods’) permitting.

      • We compose our souls in patience, awaiting the hour.

          Speak for yourself. I plan to pace back and forth clenching and unclenching my fists, in between bouts of chewing on my nails so fast that fragments fly off like a cartoon character eating corn on the cob, when I’m not lying on my back in a room with a bare splintery-plank floor staring at a clock showing 3:00 a.m. and advancing the second hand with great slow booming clicks like each second was a plodding trudge of an exhausted miner going home, until that book is in my hands.

          Well, okay, maybe not all that. But I’ve never enjoyed being patient, even if I’ve gotten reluctantly somewhat proficient at it.
