My New Book

Runtime Error

Friday is the release date for my new book Runtime Error, the first Not Invented Here collection. You have until tomorrow (Tuesday) night to preorder a copy signed by myself and my collaborator Paul, saving you a little money in the process. There are even a few hardcover copies left.

I am extremely proud of my work on this book. If you are an Unshelved fan there is a 61% chance that you will enjoy it, and even if you don't it will be perfect for that person in your life (there must be at least one) who works with computers for a living. They're everywhere. Like rats.

Libraries, booksellers, and comic shops can (and should!) order from our distributor Ingram Publisher Services or the wholesaler of your choice: Runtime Error by Bill Barnes & Paul Southworth. 168 color pages. Overdue Media, 2011. ISBN 9780974035383. Paperback $14.95
