Roc and Ace Fall

(That's the season "fall," not "fall" in its verb form.)

Valerie Cortes, a Penguin USA publicist, has created a teaser video for the Ace/Roc Fall hardcovers and trade paperbacks.

It's a different way of getting the information out, and I'm not sure if it's quite as usable as it could be -- getting to any book in particular would be difficult -- but it's definitely interesting and new and webby and eye-catching, which are all good things.

And, from this, I learned that Jack McDevitt has a new book this fall, and that John Steakley's Vampires will be republished. (Maybe I'll read it this time; people have been telling me I should for about a decade.)

Steakley book:
I offer an anti-recommendation: I didn't like it much the first time around, and I liked it considerably less after I realized that some of the main characters were shallowly Tuckerized versions of people in fandom.
