Cool move by a writer and his publisher
« on: November 28, 2006, 08:37:14 PM »

John Scalzi writes contemporary sci-fi. I've not read him (yet), but he's going on my list.

Anyone who does something like this has to be a decent person.

The best part? This is the second time he and his publisher have teamed up like this.  ;D

Sometimes it takes therapy to put the past behind you. Other times, it takes a 20 gallon trash bag and a couple of cinder blocks.

What?  Who pays for this? Did the cost come out of his advance? Or what sort of contract arrangement is there on this deal?  There is, of course, excellent advertising and promotion in this.  How much does the publisher pay for?  It's a smart move for both of them.
