"The Tooth Fairy left the name DreamHaven Books
under my pillow. Usually it's a 25-cent piece;
but given the current value of the U.S. dollar,
the value of this tip was far more glorious.
DreamHaven is a book-seeker's cave of miracles."

- Harlan Ellison

Shameless Plugs

Alright, Enough's Enough...

I've been following some of the Hugo controversy and the follow on Irene Gallo / TOR dust-up and I'm truly tired of the demands for Irene's ouster as some mis-guided and some other downright evil people threaten boycotts.  It's completely disgusting and JUST PLAIN WRONG and, well, I can do something about it in terms of sales of Tor books.

From now until the end of July, I will sell all TOR hardcover books at 40% off cover price.  If I don't have it in stock, I'll order it.  You can come in the store or you can order by phone or email.  This should make it easier to support Irene and negate any minimal effect the boycotters may have.  A letter in support of Irene to the very same people that Vox Day and Peter Grant and others ...

The book will contain the original novel but we have added some new items:

- Stills from the film.
- A new introduction by David Schow.
- A new cover by Bob Eggleton.

Trade Paperback $20.00
Hardcover (Limited to 750 copies) $50.00
