On March 23 and 24, Tor was giving away free ebook copies of Brandon Sanderson’s The Way of Kings. If I hadn’t loved Legion quite so much, I might not have been interested. But since I did, the deal seemed too good an opportunity to pass up.
Bowing to the inevitable, I had preordered John Scalzi’s new book, The Collapsing Empire, several weeks ago. Tor did not put this one up on Edelweiss for pre-reviews. As much as I’m personally sorry about that, I understand completely. It’s not as if Scalzi needs pre-reviews in order to sell anything he writes. But since I’ve been getting back into audio, I also ended up getting the audio, read by Wil Wheaton. So far, it’s marvelous and entertaining, as expected. I’m only chagrined that the next time I see Scalzi at a book signing, I know that I’ll end up buying the hardcover, too. And probably be happy to do so.
