Panda Egg: Now Live

Panda Egg is now published, and you can get the e-book here. I made it considerably cheaper than the rest of my books, which will hopefully encourage more buyers but was mostly done because shit, a lot of it is available here on the Hatstand already.

Get the massive doorstop of a paperback here, or drop me a note and ask me to sell you a copy. Bar Äijä’s will stock a limited supply of paperbacks, especially once I take out one for my own shelf, one for Mrs. Hatboy, and one for Gabriel. Let me know, I am hoping they will arrive before the Pandamonium party but I’m not the luckiest when it comes to postal transactions and Amazon can only promise they’ll arrive no later than a few days after the party.

I considered setting five more hard copies aside for my intrepid and beloved PayPal donors, but since the author copies cost more than their PayPal donation (aside from Mr. BRKN who paid twice and that’s why the book is called Panda Egg) I would end up losing money on the venture if I did that (especially since I’d have to post one back to the US for Wubbles), and anyway they got characters and stories done for them and that was the deal, if they want hard copy that’s a new transaction.

It may take a little while for Amazon to stabilise and the e-book and the paperback to link up and the Tales of the Final Fall of Man e-book series to add this third volume, but hopefully the links work and all is well.

On to the next book, I guess.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.
