Hal Spacejock at Powells Books

A lot of my US friends are waiting for the Hal Spacejock books to appear over there - I know, because you keep writing to me and commenting in my blogs, asking when the hapless space idiot is going to get his stuff together and LAND already.

Well, it's going to be quite some time before you've all won free copies, and I'm afraid there's no word on any interest from a publisher yet. What I do have is an availability update: Powells Books are showing all three Hal Spacejock books as stock items. Hal Spacejock, Hal Spacejock Second Course and Hal Spacejock Just Desserts

They're back on Amazon too, so I guess that means the ship finally came in. It's a long, slow haul from Australia to the US, and don't let anyone tell you otherwise. Especially if he's trying to sell you cargo space.

Simon Haynes is the author of the Hal Spacejock and Hal Junior series (Amazon / Smashwords / other formats)

Thanks for this. I ordered mine from Powell's and will post the info in my July newsletter. Also posted links to a couple of your articles on my blog this week. Great stuff!

By the way, I checked on Amazon, and the listings there actually point to other shops in their extended network. The number one listing (and the best price)? You guessed it: Powell's.

Amazon have been all over the place for these books. I had two orders in myself for a couple of people in the US, and both orders were cancelled with 'book is out of print' notices. Three weeks later they magically have stock again. Argh!

And thanks for the blog post. I linked to your link to my articles in my LJ.
