Thanksgiving Day Tidbits

So, just a few nuggets for you today… First off, following up on the recent press release HERE about Simon Spanton of Gollancz acquiring the world-rights to a new dragon fantasy trilogy by debut author Stephen Deas, Sascha Mamczak of Heyne Verlag has just pre-emptively acquired German rights for the series. ‘”We are extremely excited about this! It's a great fantasy adventure. A highly talented new author!” said Sascha Mamczak. “Both Stephen and I are delighted – and he is more than a little flabbergasted!” said the author’s agent, John Jarrold. “The fact that his wife, Michaela, is German only adds to the delight they both feel at this wonderful deal. Congratulations to Krystyna Kujawinska, Gollancz’s Foreign Rights Director, for sorting this out so rapidly.” The Adamantine Palace, the first book in the series, isn’t due for publication until summer 2009, but I’m already getting excited for this :D

In other news, Newsarama has a couple of interesting interviews—one is a Word Balloon audio discussion with award-winning comic book writer and film/TV writer/producer Jeph Loeb who talks about episode nine of Heroes, how the strike is affecting the show, the spin-off series and other goodies. Check out the mp3 for that HERE. And then this one is a little old, but Newsarama also has an interview with Michael Chabon HERE. Finally, I just wanted to turn your attention to Pat’s Fantasy Hotlist HERE, who will be donating any proceeds (through December 31st) from his Amazon Associates Program to the Canadian Breast Cancer Research Foundation. So, it’s a great cause and if you’re thinking about ordering something through Amazon, why not through Pat’s site :)

And if you haven’t guessed yet, it’s Turkey Day!!! To everyone that applies, have a Safe & Happy Thanksgiving!!!
