Firefly: The Ghost Machine Special Edition

Publication of my third Firefly novel, The Ghost Machine, is imminent.

(And by “imminent” I mean 28th April.)

That’s the good news. The even better news is that Barnes & Noble will be selling an exclusive edition which not only has an alternative cover but bonus content as well.

The cover you will see here on the right, and very pretty it is too. I like the standard cover a lot, but the blue background and solar system patterning add further stylishness.

One part of the bonus content is a series of recipes, which, if you know anything about my culinary skills, you will be pleased to learn I am not responsible for. What I am responsible for is the other part, a short story written specially for the book. It’s called “Haven and Hell” and, as you may be able to guess from the title, features Derrial Book. It’s a nice little tale focusing on everyone’s favourite preacher-slash-badass that ties in thematically with the novel’s narrative.

So far the edition will be available only to book buyers in the US, but there is the possibility of it being available in the UK too. More on that when I have confirmation.

    That’s great news! I hope we will be able to read the bonus short story outside of US, as well. 🙂 Keep flying and keep safe, Milan.

    It’s a hard one to get hold of as Barnes & Noble no longer deliver to the UK. Would like to purchase a copy

  3. James says:

    I’d love to be able to help, Gary, but I don’t think I can. Do you have a friend in the US who’d be able to buy you a copy and post it to you?

  4. James says:

    Only just seen this! Apologies for the very tardy reply. Short answer: no. I’m not writing any further Firefly stories. Other authors have taken up the baton, and I’m sure they’ll be doing great work.
