And the answer to the monthly question: No. Neither Copper Promise of Smilers Fair have US releases. *sigh* One of these days I hope the answer to this changes.
Maybe not, but my copy of Copper should already be winging its way across the Atlantic  :)

What do you know, maybe it's submarining its way under the Atlantic? ;)

I can officially reveal that all copies of The Copper Promise are exclusively flown over the Atlantic by a fleet of specially trained carrier dragons*. Packaging may be scorched on arrival.

The poll is open, since I am running it later than normal (and Feb is a shorter month), I only have it running for 5 days. Usually most of the votes are cast by then, so hopefully everyone has the chance to vote before then

Arrived today. Will need to send to a special lab to try to extract actual text from the ashes that are all that remained in the parcel.* The local TV station was getting calls about the sound of massive wings passing overhead, but these were disregarded as pranks of over-active D&D addicts.

One day left to vote and The Martian and Long way to a Small Angry Planet are leading it. If you voted for one of the others, feel free to shift your vote :)

I've read The Martian and loved it, it would make a great book club read I think. And I've heard good things about Small Angry Planet.

I voted for The Martian.  I'll probably just end up reading it along side this month's book.  Glad we're going scifi either way though.  I've been reading more fantasy lately; could use the change.  And it's self-published which fulfills my previous suggestion. :)

Are we calling this anytime soon?  ;)

How about a Kitschie theme next month? Any book that has ever been nominated for a Kitschie tentacle award?
