I'm very pleased to be part of a unique new grab bag of books from Humble Bundle, all related to music. This bundle includes the bestselling and award-winning CLOCKWORK ANGELS, my steampunk adventure novel based on the most recent Rush concept album, which is cowritten with Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart. And there's the sneak preview “The Bookseller's Tale” from the forthcoming companion novel, CLOCKWORK LIVES, also cowritten with Peart.
And if that isn't enough Rush for you, the bundle also includes the advance reader copy of Neil Peart: CULTURAL REPERCUSSIONS, a study of the lyrics and philosophy of Peart by a scholar who has also written similar books on Tolkien and Russell Kirk. This book has not yet been released and won't be available anywhere else until mid-September. The only printed preview copies sold out in hours at Rushcon in LA last weekend.
If you want to read these plus fifteen other titles, name your own price, and a portion goes to charity. *Only nine days left*
As a unique companion to my forthcoming steampunk “Canterbury Tales,” CLOCKWORK LIVES—co-created with Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart—ECW Press has released a limited-edition set of Tarot cards. Each of the 13 cards contains a line illustration of one of the Clockwork Lives characters by Nick Robles, the artist who did such a fabulous job on our CLOCKWORK ANGELS graphic novel.
Only 300 sets of cards exist (I know, because I have them all right here in a box!). I will be selling them at the Hard Rock Cafe in Denver this Thursday night (two days before the Denver Rush concert!) and also at Rushcon in LA at the end of the month.
For those of you who can't make either of those appearances, though, I am making the card sets available for $15 each, plus postage. The following links are for US orders, Canada/Mexico, and International. Limit of 3 per person, and when they're gone, they're gone.
US orders $15 + $2.50 postageCanada/Mexico $15 + $4 postageInternational $15 + $8 postage
