I'm not quite sure what is up with people...but, they seem to be buying, already, copies of the paperback edition of Storm World on Amazon. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that there's 5 % off on Amazon.com book preorders. I'm not sure. In any event, given that I am devoting this weekend to writing a scintillating new introductory essay to the paperback edition, seeing some preorders come in was really inspiring. Now I'd better deliver. Also, I thought I'd preview, at this point, the new cover image for paperback. What do you think of it?
