New stories from T.C. Boyle Stories II (October 2013) are forthcoming in Harper’s (“Sic Transit”); Playboy (“The Marlbane Manchester Musser Award”); and McSweeney’s(“Burning Bright”).A just-released illustrated collector’s edition of Joe Haldeman‘s The Forever War has already sold out. Centipede Press only printed 150 copies, cloth bound with a slipcase, signed by Joe, Ridley Scott, who wrote the forward, and the illustrator, Jim Burns. Small wonder: The $250 price tag seems like a steal considering that signed first editions of the 1976 Hugo Award winner can go for well over a thou.
Don Wallace has sold his wonderfully titled memoir Village Idiots, illumined in Publisher’s Weekly thusly: on ” . . . how a ruin they couldn’t afford on a tiny French island too far from home renovated the lives of this American family.” It will be published next year by Sourcebooks.
