Signing at Uncle Hugo's starting at 1:00 today

I’m signing at Uncle Hugos today from 1-3. 

That is from signing the mail orders last night. That’s probably half of what I signed because they kept reloading the table as we went.

As for Minneapolis, what do you people have against letting somebody merge on the freeway? It is like survival of the fittest out there NO! I see your blinker! I DENY YOUR BLINKER!

If you are curious, here is a really good review of Hard Magic from Elitist Book Reviews:  http://elitistbookreviews.blogspot.com/2011/04/hard-magic.html

And Hard Magic is doing well on Amazon too.

Amazon Bestsellers Rank: #1,470 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)

Also, Amazon only has 6 copies left of the hard cover. I told you the hard covers were limited. 🙂

Done in Minneapolis, next up Layton Utah
My audio books are doing really well!

I cannot wait to get my copies in the mail. One for me (of course) and the other a 21st birthday present for my brother. He is going to love it.

That was a great review, and I agree with Steve that Larry’s character development in Hard Magic is superbly executed, and that the book is superior to the MHI series. I disagree with him about the cover though; I think it has the ideal Chandler-esque feel that the story fulfills.

I agree with you about the review, disagree with you about the cover. 😛

The cover is more just personal taste. Not my thing. But the novel itself was terrific (like my review says). Glad you all liked it.

Agreed! For over a year now I’ve gone back and forth on which I like better- MHI or Grimnoir. I still can’t quite make up my mind. Grimnoir is better in a lot of ways (and really shows how much Larry has grown as a writer), but I still adore MHI (it just seems more “fun” overall.) I just can’t decide (which says a lot about Larry as a writer)
As far as the cover goes:

I haven’t read Hard Magic yet, though I expect to buy it soon, having read “Detroit Christmas.”

As for merging in Minnesota, I dunno, but Connecticut is an adventure. The on-ramps are usually about three quarters of a car-length long and people tend to like to pass right at the top of the ramp, preventing right-lane traffic from moving over.

You mean that’s not how it’s supposed to be done? Huh.

I’ve gotta say… wow. I loved the MHI books, but this just walks all over them imo. I mean, as far as superhero novels go, this is right up there (and beyond) some of the best Wildcards books and Wylie’s Gladiator (the books the comics ripped Superman off of). Also pretty timely since that’s supposed to be ‘the next big thing’ after the whole vampire/zombie fad. Most of those types of books either go too campy and end up like golden age comics in print, but this actually felt believeable and ofc, like all Correia books, was a pure thrill… Read more »

Sorry for the disjointed rambling post by the way, but I just couldn’t find enough good things to say about this series. I’ve been reading a lot of superhero type fiction lately (and I know it’s all dressed up as magic, but clearly that’s what this all is) since picking up the wildcards series, and mostly I’ve just been accepting drivel because it fell into a genre I had become addicted to. It was really nice to find something that was not only legitimitely good and in that genre, but one of the best books I’ve read in a good… Read more »

Does Uncle Hugo’s send confirmation emails when the order is being processed?

Haven’t had any notice yet.

Larry,
Purchased 4 of your hard covers as gifts. While keeping one for myself of course. Keep up the good work and I’m looking forward to reading the whole book without having to hit page down on a computer.

Larry,

Enjoyed talking with you at the Uncle Hugo signing. Thanks for the patch. I’m about halfway thru HM & MHV, enjoying them both.

Just remember, if you have a carlength and a millimeter, merge. If you don’t, fire up the dual 240’s under the hood and make yourself a space.;-)
