The Aylesford Skull & Blog Tour

Blaylock's latest, the new steampunk novel The Aylesford Skull is out this month. It looks like it is already available in the UK.

If you can't wait to buy it locally, you can get it from the Book Depository with free shipping to anywhere in the world (they usually deliver pretty promptly): http://www.bookdepository.com/Aylesford-Skull-James-Blaylock/9780857689795

I went to the Titan Books website and found that they're also going to be releasing editions of Homunculus & Lord Kelvin's Machine a little later this year.  No mention of whether any afterwords or other commentary is going to be added or not.

Yes, there's been quite an upsurge of republishing lately. I think most of Blaylock's back-list of books is being re-issued in e-book format, and it looks like Titan is doing mass-market paperbacks of his steampunk stuff. They have a uniform steampunk cover style for them - the new cover for Homunculus can be seen at http://www.sybertooth.com/blaylock/homuncul.htm
Being mass-market editions, they should be quite affordable, and not sell out quickly like limited editions.

Amazon Canada has finally gotten around to making The Aylesford Skull available, and an e-pub version is being sold by Kobo for non-Kindle-e-readers: http://www.sybertooth.com/blaylock/TheAylesfordSkull.htm

The Publisher, Titan Books, is promising an "Aylesford Skull Swashbuckling Blog Tour", starting today (Jan. 21).

That's fantastic!  Thanks for the links.  And here's hoping for an increase in readership for Mr. Blaylock.  Good for him, and good for the new readers who discover his work.

One of the revelations to come out of the blog tour must be the sheer number of blogs with the words "geek" or "nerd" in their names.

I haven't noticed too many more stops on the blog tour this week, so it may be winding down. Here's a new interview posted today:

There's a note in Chapman University Happenings:

in which you can get a glimpse of the poker-playing dogs picture in Blaylock's office.
