    Still says "not currently available for purchase" for me.

    I may or may not have checked the Amazon page every day for the last two weeks... :)

    So I got the jacket for the North American version of THE RIG (due Fall, 2015), and I have to say it's pretty awesome:

    I am somewhat biased, of course, but I reckon it's cool. Also should be my first hardcover, I'm told!

    Does this book have something to do with a rig?

    Nope, not at all. Also can't wait to point it out to my book club in the bookstore, then pull out my autographed copy.

    You'd think so, but no. That's a typo. This is a pig-based coming of age story about how you can never really go home again.

    Good, because I'd read the SHIT out of that.

    Is it a spiritual successor to Animal Farm. I only read highly controversial books on political subject matter.

    Okay, finally got around to reading this last week. Dude, I love/hate you so much.

    Also, glad to hear you're working on sequels.

    Only question: What happened to Strawberry?

    Started reading this. Already, I like the character of Irene - to the surprise of nobody.

    Thanks. Irene is my favourite character. Hope you enjoy the rest - let me know in a review of no less than 5,000 words.

    Ha, 5,000 words is something I wouldn't even use to write a college essay, but when I'm finished, I'll let you know. By the way, do you ever get tired of the Prison Break comparisons? Personally, I like both the show and The Rig, but I'd understand if you find the continual references rather annoying.

    @Joe Dude, Pat Rothfuss just name dropped you (although I think he said Joe Dulcie) and The Rig on his Twitch AMA stream, saying he just got around to reading it and that it was awesome.

    Free promotional material!!!!!!

    I think so. If it shows up in past broadcasts somewhere. It's still going on though. He's playing subnautica and answering questions.
