Diane Duane's 'The Big Meow'

Welcome to the glitzy, murky world of 1946 Hollywood, a smoggy film-noir landscape filled with glamourous starlets, flamboyantly corrupt studio heads, and wicked, pampered cats with hidden agendas; a city of unsolved murders, snoopy screenwriters, scheming PR flacks, and a shadowy, celebrity-ridden cult dabbling in knowledge better left alone -- knowledge which could destroy the world's present and doom its future, if the dreadful promise of the Year of the Black Jaguar is fulfilled...

Hardcover subscriptions to "The Big Meow" now available: also, hardcover upgrades for those already subscribed

Some of the people who've subscribed to "The Big Meow" have been asking about the possibility of hardcover editions being made available.

I've done the costings, and the price isn't too horrible, so I've put up buttons on the main "Big Meow" page so that people can purchase them if they prefer them to the paperback edition. (There are upgrades available, too, for those who already have subscriptions: they cost either USD $10 or USD $11, depending on whether you want a dustcover or not. Click here if you're already subscribed and want a hardcover.)

A first-time subscription to the hardcover edition of the novel, without a dustcover, will cost USD $32.50: with a dustcover, you pay $33.50. If you use the following link, it'll take you right to the subscription buttons --


The cover artwork will be by Ursula Vernon. I hope to have some sketches sometime late in September.

Has the entire project been pushed back a year? The front page says that Chapter 5 will be published on the 16th of August, 2007, while the 'revised schedule' on other pages still has 2006 dates..
Whoops! No, the project hasn't been pushed back a year -- that's a typo: I'll go fix it.

It *has* been delayed due to illness in the family: I'm working to get caught up now. Thanks for checking, though.
Upgraded. Thanks for the options. :-)
