Hot Books for Summer. "Will the Vampire People Please Leave the Lobby?" by Whedonesque's own Allyson Beatrice makes the Publisher's Weekly list of recommended summer reading (available in August from Sourcebooks).

That comment still cracks me up. Aly gave an excellent commentary of that event that was well received within the 'verse. I don't think we can say,"Thank you!" enough.

Wonderful job, Alyson!
Mine is on pre-order. I can't wait!
Totally need to read that.
Congratulations, Ms. Beatrice! I am so looking forward to reading this.
Have ordered my copy, too. *Tries to wait patiently for its arrival*
When I read the headline my first thought was what books to give to Summer Glau.
(Like SoS, my first take was different, so I'm continuing to misinterpret the title on purpose)

I'm hoping Summer will be preoccupied with a stack of hot scripts - including one particular sequel - when she isn't before the cameras, making more beauteous entertainment for all of us.
It's wonderfully surreal to see links for something I wrote, here!

The release was pushed up to mid-July, Barnes & Noble wants it for a table, then. That's also surreal. I keep thinking there's been some mix-up.
Looking foward to the read, Allyson. My niece has been pulling my limbs for a copy of your book.
Congratulations Allyson! Here's hoping copies of "The Vampire People" will leave the bookstores and in great numbers in the company of happy purchasers. Very much looking forward to reading it.

Was Mammoth really that good?

But seriously, I read the previously-linked excerpt of Ms. Beatrice's book and I am really looking forward to getting my hands on the whole thing.

Congratulations, Allyson! It is always great to see good things happen for people.
'Mammoth 2: Return of the Jack'

Nope, not even for Summer, sorry ;(.

May well pick this one up, sounds good (and July is happily closer than September). Congrats Allyson ;).

(as an aside, it's interesting to me that the Richard Morgan book is being called 'Thirteen' in the US. Over here it's being published as 'Black Man', i've been assuming because the gen-engineered soldiers are black - more UV tolerant ? - and the theme seems to be racism among others. Along with Warren Ellis' 'Crooked Little Vein' it's probably my most eagerly awaited Summer fiction)
Congratulations, Allyson, a featured table book - that's great news. Here's to being a blockbuster summer bestseller!
Congrats Ms. Alyson, you're getting great exposure for the book. Your title actually reminds me, every time I see it, of Charles Grodin's autobiography, It Would Be So Nice If You Weren't Here, something that was actually said to him and the film crew that was using a British citizen's home for filming.
I know you aren't supposed to judge a book by it's cover, but I really like the cover. I'm sure I'll really like the rest of it too.
Can't wait to read this. Congratulations on your success.
