Huh. I thought this was coming out in early May.
But, according to several online retailers, the mmpb edition of Bitter Seeds is now available!
This is the US paperback edition, from Tor. It includes the first chapter of The Coldest War, as well as the short story, “What Doctor Gottlieb Saw.” This edition is wrapped in fantastic artwork by Chris McGrath, a piece of artwork I like to call, “Do Not Make Eye Contact With the Sociopathic Clairvoyant Woman.” (I doubt that’s what Chris calls it.)
This is distinct from the Orbit UK edition, which will come out on July 12. (The full schedule, as best as I know it at the moment, is available here.) That edition will also contain extra material, including an interview.
I’m giving away 3 copies. For free! More details below the cut.
Over on Goodreads, I’m giving away 3 copies of this freshly released mmpb of Bitter Seeds. I did something similar when the hardcover came out. Did I mention these are free books?
Currently the giveaway is only open to people in the US. I’m sorry about that. But I don’t want to be perceived as undercutting my publisher in the UK — Orbit has been very enthusiastic about the Milkweed books and a big supporter. They have already moved the UK release of Bitter Seeds forward from December to this July.
