Beautiful Artifact

IMG_2806A goodie arrived in the post today.  My own personal copy of the signed, illustrated, slipcased limited edition Subterranean Press hardback edition of The Book of Swords, edited by Gardner Dozois, and featuring my story “The Triumph of Virtue.”

There are other stories as well, by minor authors like George R.R. Martin, Robin Hobb, CJ Cherryh, Elizabeth Bear, Daniel Abraham, Scott Lynch, and many more.

Each story is illustrated by Ken Laager, and there are also full-color plates and a dust jacket.

The Subterranean web site says it’s out of print, but that just means that every copy has been bought up by dealers, and you’ll have to buy from them.

The limited edition goes for $250, but I’ll bet you can find it cheaper here and there.  There is also a “lettered edition” for $750, but apparently I don’t get one of those.

Sometime in the next year, it’s likely you’ll have a birthday.  You’ll want something nice for your birthday, right?  Just sayin’.

I’m kinda hoping for Q2 by the time my birthday rolls around, but I’ll be glad to get TAW at any rate. :-)
