THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE THE TIME WAR: OUT TODAY!

Friends! Today’s the day!

You’ve waited. You’ve suffered agonies of time. But now you can suffer its pleasures too.

This Is How You Lose the Time War is my novella collaboration with Max Gladstone, and it launches in North America today (UK folks get it on the 18th, though there as here some copies have skillfully wiggled out of their temporal constraints). This means your pre-orders (and enamel pins + postcards!) should be arriving very soon. If you haven’t pre-ordered it? Your instructions follow. Read by dreaming:

I cannot thank you enough for all the pre-ordering, pre-reading, pre-reviewing, pre-squeeing you’ve already done. This weekend at Readercon—where thanks to the incredibly generous efforts of Meg Frank, Alyshondra Meacham, and many volunteers, we had a fabulous party—we learned that this strange and sinuous little book has already gone into a second printing because you demonstrated the demand for it. The book wasn’t even out yet when we learned this! Max and I are both humbled and dazzled and just generally wandering around stupefied with gratitude and joy.

So I want to thank you, as the prophets say. Thank you, deeply, for all of it.

Love,

Amal

PS: AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH OUR BOOK IS OUT IN THE WORLD TODAY CAN YOU EVEN BELIEVE IT BECAUSE I CANNOT

  1. Most definitely that incandescent mix of the two. This story was exquisitely beautiful. I couldn’t put it down just as I savored every word. The playfulness, the way the strange was made familiar. The exquisite world building that lurked just outside the frame. Absolutely masterful. One of my favorite things I’ve read, not just this year but ever.
