We’re flying to California tomorrow. I am so ready to be elsewhere for a week. The atmosphere at work is distinctly unpleasant.
I bought myself a little vacation treat: an ARC of A Companion to Wolves. I realized I’ll be on a business trip when it comes out in October, and I’ve been wanting to read this since the green dragonrider discussion1 came up. So.
What I find bizarre is that it’s still in manuscript format. I don’t think I’ve ever seen another ARC that wasn’t typeset — although, to its credit, this one does say “Advance Bound Manuscript” at the top instead of the usual review copy, not for sale, blah blah blah.
(Memo to bookseller peddling ARCs: You are an evil person for making money off a publisher’s freebies, and you are going to the special hell. Also, the package arrived quickly. Smooches.)
