Asyouknowbob, the mass market paperback edition of Ghost Ship will ship on July 31 (Hey, that’s Steve’s birthday! And also? Next Tuesday!).
Now, I know that lots of people read Ghost Ship a thousand years ago, internet-time, as an eArc, and still more snabbled it up in hardcover last August. However, there are some people who wait for the mass market, and my further remarks are mostly for them — though all you early adopters can listen in, if you want.
There is some prep work for Ghost Ship. It’s not necessary prep — if you’ve been following along the novels, you’ll do just fine moving from Saltation to Ghost Ship. However, there are a couple short stories that may deepen your enjoyment — or at least your understanding of certain events touched on in the novel. And, with a whole week left before your book ships, these morsels might soothe your hunger pangs.
The prep stories are: Hidden Resources, Moon on the Hill, Prodigal Son, and (to a lesser degree) Fighting Chance. These four stories are available, DRM-free, and in the format of your choice, in echapbooks Halfling Moon, and Allies.
