Pyr's Second Season and related

A number of Pyr related items if I may:

First, our second season catalog is now up for download as a PDF here. I'm thrilled with the line up, which features books by Keith Brooke, John Meaney, Michael Moorcock & Storm Constantine, Mike Resnick, Justina Robson, Martin Sketchley, and George Zebrowski, and also very excited about the cover illustations from the talented Jim Burns, Brian W. Dow, Dave Seeley & John Picacio.

Second, we have posted a short Q&A with Charles Coleman Finlay about his novel, The Prodigal Troll, at http://www.pyrsf.com/prodigaltroll.html.

Third, we've just received our second Entertainment Weekly review, this time for Chris Roberson's Here, There & Everywhere, which was given a B grade and concludes: Roberson's irreverent alternate histories of the Beatles, Sherlock Holmes, and H G Wells are a welcome stitch in the age-old time-travel tradition.

This follows earlier reviews in Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, Locus, Library Journal, and the Florida Sun-Sentinel, the last of which called Here, There & Everywhere "the Bridget Jones of time travelers."

Lou --

Great Q&A with Charlie Finlay. I just wanted to point out that there's an HTML issue on that page regarding the alternating bold/normal text. It alternates correctly through question 3, but from question 4 onward everything is in bold, rather than just the questions.

Lou Anders said...

Thanks. I don't see that, what browser are you on?

John Joseph Adams said...

Hrm. The issue comes up when I view the page in Mozilla FireFox, but not in IE, it seems. That's odd.

Lou Anders said...

I'll let them know, thanks.

Lou Anders said...

And now the problem should be fixed.

I am very much looking forward to the Finlay...I had no idea it was arriving in two formats at once. Very cool!

Glad you approve. We did that with the Roberson book as well, and will do it with George Zebrowski's Macrolife. I hope it is something we can keep doing.
