My Books Are Now Carried in the Watertown Free Public Library!

According to the reference librarian at the Watertown Free Public Library:
“Thank you for donating your books. I have chosen to include The Kanawha Anomaly and Machine Feelings and Other Stories in our circulating Science Fiction collection. Titles added to our circulating collection will get the opportunity to go out. Materials in our circulating collection are subject to our collection development policy and over time we may evaluate whether the books should remain in our collection.
“Your other titles Helltown Chronicles, The Winship Affair, Uncontacted Frontier and The Allston Variant will be included in our Watertown Author collection. Titles in our Watertown Author collection will be retained. These books do not go out. If you would like to donate another copy of Kanawha Anomaly and/or Machine Feelings and Other Stories, we would be happy to add those titles to our Watertown Author collection as well.

First Known Sighting of “Uncontacted Frontier”

My good buddy Bob Rowlands emailed me this photo:

“Look at what came to our house from Amazon today!  Someday in the future (I don’t know when yet), I want to get together in person for drinks and dinner, and you can autograph it for me! Although I read at least part of the draft a while ago, I’m looking forward to reading the finished product.  It’ll be my bedtime reading.”

I’m still awaiting my copies of Uncontacted Frontier from the printer.  ;-(
