BIAS CUT is now available in softcover!

Very exciting!

The softcover version of my novel, BIAS CUT, is now available and in stock at online book retailers. You should also be able to order it directly from any bookseller, if you'd prefer to support your favorite local bookstore.  The Amazon link is here; the Barnes & Noble link is here.

No Kindle? No worries -- the paperback version will be officially released by my publishing company, Luft Books, within the next few weeks.  I'll keep you posted on the street date and ordering info as the details firm up. The paperback will have the advantage of displaying the full awesome Nagel-esque cover, shown above, which was designed by the eternally-awesome Morgan Dodge.

Some of my favorite people in the world have said some nice things about Duranalysis:

“It looks like they’re performing in a vast, icy chamber, like they’re the house band at the Fortress of Solitude, though I would’ve pegged Superman as more of a Springsteen man.”
