I’ve been a published author for thirty-five years now, and one thing that never gets old is the excitement of bringing a new book into the world. My eighth novel, The Destroyer of Worlds: A Return to Lovecraft Country, goes on sale today. You’ll find order links for the book on its main page here, a preliminary FAQ about the novel here, and a schedule of my in-person appearances to promote the book here.
I’ve also teamed up with Blake Collier, my co-host on the 88 Names podcast, to produce a new limited series about this novel that we’re calling The Destroyer of Podcasts. Our introductory episode is up today, and our plan is to release four additional episodes on a more-or-less weekly basis. New episodes will appear in my blog feed and on the dedicated podcast page. which is linked from The Destroyer of Worlds page. You can subscribe to the RSS feed through various aggregators like Apple Podcasts and Stitcher.
If you’d rather read than listen, I have a Big Idea essay on John Scalzi’s Whatever blog this morning, talking about why and how I wrote this novel. You can check that out here.
Tomorrow night I’ll be reading and signing at at Powell’s City of Books in Portland, OR, starting at 7 PM. On Thursday I’ll be back in Seattle, reading at Elliott Bay Book Company, also at 7 PM. And on Saturday, I’ll be in Tukwila, signing books at Barnes & Noble South Center from 1 PM to around 4 PM.
