  1. A Master of Djinn ebook is on sale at Amazon right now.

    Thanks, I just grabbed a copy on Apple Books where it’s two dollars and ninety nine cents. I already own the Audible audiobook but figured it wouldn’t hurt to have the ebook as well.

    I’m eagerly awaiting the next the novel in the Dead Djinn Universe series.

  3. Hmm. Should I pick it up discounted, or see whether it’s in the Hugo packet when that eventually comes out?

    Pick it up now. Support the author. He’s still newish and could use the $$.

  5. Congratulations to the winners. For myself, I think A Master of Djinn is a great novel and well deserving of the win.

    I read Sarah Pinsker’s “Where Oaken Hearts Do Gather” only a couple of days ago. Gosh it has stuck in my mind. I think it’ll repay you time.

  8. OK, I picked it up — still don’t know when the Hugo packet will be released or even if it will contain the full text of Master, and this way I can get a start on it.
