I was prepping for this! I'm just about a third into season three. I will set my Bat66-alarm clock so I don't miss a post and follow along wearing my Bat66-socks, drinking from my Bat66-thermos.....
The galleries will be back but it'll take a little while. There are a few other features (plus the bug fixes) that we need to get to first. I miss them too -- they'll be back!
The full RSS feed is linked to in the footer and is here.
Thanks for all the feedback!
We're working on fixes so please continue to let us know if something is working right.
We're also about to jump into new development of various features -- which we will slow-and-steady roll out as soon as we can -- so, again, please let us know if there is something you don't see that might be helpful. (Following conversations is noted!)
It gets a bit dark in the middle of the book. I think 12 might be a little young. It's meant for adults but I'd say it's fine in the 14 and up range, if one was the type of 14-yr old that is ok with a little macarbe.
You take a picture of all your books and then the app will tell you which are eligible. Once you've done that, you need to redeem them one at a time.
You are absolutely right, I very sorry for having overlooked it. It's added in now. Thanks for the heads-up.
Tor Books are availble throughout all retailers, same as before. Apple has given us the space to make browsing a little easier for readers. None of our books are excsuive to Apple.
Julie Dillon is in there and an amazing artist. Click through the link and you'll see.
They are not related but it's an easy assumption. They even look a bit alike -- not directly but certinaly they look like they could come from the same family. And they are both spectaular people.
All Tor Books US/UK are DRM free, since 2012. Apple's FairPlay DRM (as well as the different DRM systems used by other retailers) are not applied to our eBooks.
I apologize for overstating the warning. The author labeled the original manuscript with a trigger warning for the suicide in the story. We defaulted to our standard warning and I can see how that is misleading here. We did not mean to imply that the warning is about the issues surrounding the character's gender identity. We'll lighten it up.
In some other life were I have more time, I want to write the illustration version of this artcile.
Thanks fo rconsidering for a Hugo!
It seems to fall into a gray area. Tor.com is a profeiosnal outlet but Rocket Talk is Justin's production and he does not earn a living from it. I wish I could say more than just take your best guess. (I'm not sure if it's in the rules to vote for it in two categories?)
Thanks for the heads-up, we're adding it in now.
Sorry! (And thanks for the heads-up.) That was supposed to be, "February 1st until May 1st."
We will be closed February, March, and April. Back open in May.
@23: It's definitely in Amazon UK and all other retailers, globally. Did you do a search on the title there?
Let us know what your favorites are. Some of the best from Some of the Best!
Our hope is that it's a lot cleaner and easier to use but that it still looks and feels familiar. We didn't want to go too crazy with it, I think people will settle in pretty quickly.
There will be an ebook edition.
Thaks guys! It was a fun day. I know it sounds cheesey but I really felt just as good, if not better, about Ellen Datlow, Ellen Klages, and Andy Duncan's wins! In fact, high fives to everyone on the ballot.
I still watch these, just as earnestly as I did when I was a kid. There's nothing wrong with a polite and progressive superhero, and everythig right about it.
This should be fixed now. If you ordered it for .99 it will default back to free when the book is released, you won't be charged.
Sorry guys. It's supposed to be free, I'm looking into it now.
Thanks for commenting. We'll be following this thread as well as the survey so feel free to keep adding anything you thought wasn't clear or broad enough.
As for sweepstakes, we do apologize. I wish it was otherwise but, unfortunately, international tax laws make it impossible for us to run sweepstakes outside of the US.
Thanks again for taking the time to reply!
Sorry guys, that was a mistake on this page.
Chris, did you write this one?
3: Thanks! I hadn't seen that before. Stunning.
43. Steve Caunce,
I updated the post.
Thanks for all the great adds, everyone! There's so much great work out there.
It's true! I loved Prince of Egypt. It doenst get the reckonition it deserves.
Just in time for WorldCon!
Can I "like" all of the above?
Suddenly my High School art career seems so underwhelming.
Thanks for the catch. We're working to fix this now.
Please restate your comment without name-calling or acquisitions.
Thank you, thank you, and thank you!
You have been such a big part of Tor.com's foundation. Thank you.
Ack, I missed that. Thanks.
Yup, unless I missed something, the only woemn in the history of the Hugos to be nominated in the Pro Artists category are:
Diane Dillon (With Leo Dillon),
2013, and now 2014
The only woman to win, Diane Dillon in 71.
I'd have to check but, off the top of my head, I think more women are on this year's Pro Art list than have been on the past 20, maybe even 30 years, combined.
36: Thanks. The link is now fixed.
I think you need to have a returning semseter but I'm not 100% sure. I would contact our HR department and ask them.
If you're enrolled in college or grad school and looking for a summer internship with us, please feel free to conatct our Human Resources department for further details.
Trampier was a huge part of my own sff orgins-story. I used to copy his drawings as a kid. I was a bit too young to try and keep up playing D&D with my older brothers, but I loved drawing from the manuals and making characters, and painting the minitures. So thanks, David. I owe you kinda a lot.
My apologies. Nook tends to be slower than most other retailers when it comes to price changes. It will be listed, presumabley today — they're just lagging behind a bit.
I keep coming back to look at this!
what Carl was teasing about...But there's always some kind of new goodness to look forward to. ;-)
We're looking into it. In the meantime, we will be sure you are registered.
I am biased, of course, but Brisk Money is great and seems to be collecting in-house fans. This'll be a fun project.
Hi Chuk, sorry about the typo. It's three stories.
This omnibus is available from all e-book retailers where Tor Books has the right to publish these novels.
Hi Guys, Stepping in while our regular moderators get home safe from the snow. I unpublished @29 for name calling and being overly antagonistic.
He re-worked the face a bit. We'll release updated wallpapers on that next week.
AG Rooster: We did shift things around for this. I don't want to commit to what went where, since the office closed this week and I can't double check my facts. But when you have a Whelan, you make room. ;-)
We are certainly not dismissing it, we're thrilled! (Although, for the record Vatman, your guess is really not correct.)
I love this story! Thanks, Mari. And thanks to Allen, it's one of my favorite illsutrations as well.
[Note from management: Damn, if ever we needed a "like" button, it's now. So many great stories here! ]
In the old days, that was a "deckle edge." It was the thin feathery edge created when people made single sheets of paper.
Nowadays publishers sometimes ask for a "rough front," which is a cheaper way to get that "ye olde story book" feel with mass produced rolls of paper.
@35 and 36:
Ack! Thanks. I put a note up top.
We actually have thought about commissioning a cross section drawing of the ole ship. Hmmm....
