Charlie Jane Anders — a super-talented writer in her own right — included Daedalus in her October list of books you can’t afford to miss. I had no idea this was in the works, so needless to say, this was a very pleasant surprise.
Given the plethora of excellent books out every month, this is no small thing. And the list includes books from folks like Dave Eggers, Ann Leckie and Scott Lynch. Fine company indeed.
The folks at io9 do fantastic work covering all things awesome; if you haven’t checked out the site, you should. Their coverage of the whole Night Shade/Skyhorse deal was very good, and they ran an excerpt of Daedalus when it launched. Plus, Charlie Jane and her colleague Rob Bricken are two of my favorite culture writers working today.
So thanks, io9, for all the support and kind words. Keep on being awesome.
