The last few months have provided more than their fair share of stressful distractions. Several things have been pushed to the side or just plain ignored while I've dealt with those. I'm not out of the woods yet, but I've been making an effort to get things back on track.
There is one project in Wyrm's catalog that has had the appearance of being cursed from day one.... the signed limited edition of Toast by Charles Stross. It was originally scheduled years ago and has been tripping over deadlines ever since. The good news is that is finally in the hands of our printer. If they survive the curse and don't burn down, I should have the books in early September. I'll post another update when they supply the final shipping date.
One of the other things I've been working on is an ebookstore for Wyrm and Clarkesworld. I think it still needs work, but I came to the realization that waiting for perfection was silly. You can now order ebook editions of Realms, Last Drink Bird Head, and back issues of Clarkesworld via the Wyrm Ebookstore. At this time, Wyrm has two stores: one for print and one for ebooks. It might be a bit confusing for some people, but it actually made sense when it came to the features each cart system offered. I hope to pull them together at some point in the future. Anyhow, the ebookstore has PayPal and Google Checkout as payment options. That should cover all your needs. Once paid for, you can download your EPUB or MOBI/Kindle edition and load it onto your reader.
