2) There's a post by Patrick on Tor.com about my forthcoming collection of Tor.com pieces What Makes This Book So Great.
3) Ha'Penny is out in the new trade paperback edition with the nice cover. It's actually been out for a couple of weeks, but I forgot to tell you. Half a Crown will be out in a matching edition in the autumn. This will be the first paperback of any kind. (And before you start -- I prefer A format "mass market" sized paperbacks too, but you and I do not constitute sufficient of a market to make them economically viable any more, except for bestsellers.)
4) Tentative release date for My Real Children of "next summer". That's summer 2014. So that's good.
5) Sassafrass have met the $11,000 goal, so my second "Odin on the Tree" poem will be going out to backers today. It's in modern old lore metre with caesuras. If they crack $12,000 they'll be sending the Odin and Loki one (which I really like and which will have a proper title by then), at $13,000 "Ask to Embla" (now written), and at $14,000 the (technically singable) Loki poem that I wrote on the train, "Mountain Doors". You can get this one and get everyone closer to getting all the others by contributing as little as $10. (Also, their music is amazing.)
