    I almost always regret Centipede titles I’ve passed up, but William Gibson’s work — cyberpunk and/or hard sci-fi — is really not my thing. Unfortunately, I suspect he’ll join the Blish, Shea (Nifft), Leiber, and Moorcock series that I’ve chosen to skip. Can’t have ‘em all, and hard choices are never fun, but…

    Might not be signed by Gibson, but it'll still be awesome.
    This was the exciting news for me from this newsletter. Really happy to hear that 'Count Zero' and 'Mona Lisa Overdrive' are being planned as well as 'Neuromancer'. I love 'Neuromancer', but I'm not sure it's actually the best of the three, and probably more to the point, it's not the whole story. Based on previous info I believe Dave McKean is providing at least some of the art for 'Neuromancer - not sure if he's providing illustrations for the other books or not?

    Gibson's 'The Peripheral' is being adapted by Amazon as a series, and likely to land sometime this year. I've liked most of Gibson's work, but 'The Peripheral' is special and could translate very well to the screen.

    No Robert Sheckley book this week - printer delays. Jerad hopes to have it available to order next week.

    I'm trying to avoid videos and photos until I've seen my own copy, but I'll check that out afterwards.

    Even avoided Jeff's video, apart from seeing that it was dinged via the thumbnail.

    Here's hoping that my copy has a better trip in the mail!

    Funny enough, there was an Australian seller that listed an older Millipede book a day or two ago at a great price that I almost went for, but it sold while I was mulling it over. Snooze and lose.
    The postage was not cheap, but the seller split the cost!

    Thanks Ron. I totally missed it when it was released. I've looked for a reasonably priced copy for years and finally found one in Australia lol!!

    Thanks, Jeff…and of course with me following your lead on the box damage I immediately checked for the pg. 299 / 399 issue you had, but to my additional relief I was good there, too.
    I'm glad that worked out, Ron! Mine arrived today, but I'm leaving it under the tree until tomorrow night. The box has no damage, so I'm not anticipating any issues. I'll have to make sure I don't have the duplicate artwork, though.

    Unbelievable. Now I know the frisson of fear that Jeff felt…

    I’ll come back and edit this post with the results…need a hour or so to brace myself for potential soul-crushing disappointment.



    EDIT: Thanks, Ben and Martin, for the wishes of luck…THEY WORKED! No issues at all with the book, it’s as pristine and perfect as when it left Jerad’s hands. Whew!
