The problem with some small publishers (as I've discovered) is they kind of just toss books out there without the build-up you'd get with a Big Six publisher.  I mean how many years was it you could preorder JK Rowlings grown-up book?  But smaller operations tend to just chuck things out whenever they're finished, which can leave you scrambling to get the word out when it's your book that's out.

Anyway, grumpy mini-rant over.  Sales pitch beginning!

You can now go out and buy the soon-to-be-award-winning follow-up to Michael Offutt's Slipstream, called Oculus!  There's lots more creepy spiders involved this time (apparently) and more "ice hockey" and parallel worlds and killsuits and a bunch of science a doofus accountant like me can't understand and I'm sure a whole lot more!

I already have a copy on my Kindle waiting to be read, so now's your turn to get yours!  This link has all the purchasing choices you'll need.  But you really should buy from the publisher direct so the author gets more money.  I'm just saying.   
Buy it now!!!

And if you have a Kindle and like FREE books, tomorrow you can get Tony Laplume's collection of short stories Monorama for FREE!  (Note I said Tomorrow, as in November 10, not right now--unless it is November 10 right now.)


  1. Congrats Michael! Cool book. Kind of cyber-space meets Wild, Wild West in a good way.

  2. Thank you Maurice. And thank you Patrick. You are awesome. And yes my publisher could honestly give a shit about scheduling anything. They just do whatever they want to do.

  3. I saw the book cover reveal and was very confused that the book was ready to buy. At least you didn't have to wait.

  5. I smell another success for Michael Offut.

  6. Awesome; I'll have to go congratulate Mike.


  7. I was thinking the same thing about how fast your book and Mike's were just tossed out there. What is so hard about letting the author know and giving them the option of holding it back a month or two?
