United Kingdom Ebooks

September 7th, 2015

TRFL_v2_250x386When I sold The Red Trilogy to Saga Press, I was able to retain the right to publish the books separately in the United Kingdom. I’m doing so under my own publishing imprint, Mythic Island Press LLC.

What does this mean for readers in the UK? It means you’ll get an ebook with the text formatted by me, and cover art that’s different from the American edition. Be assured though, that the stories are the same.

For now, I’m only doing ebook editions of the trilogy.

The ebook of The Red: First Light has already been available in the UK for around a month. It has the same cover as the original Mythic Island Press edition, but the text is revised from the original, making it the same as the Saga Press edition.

I’m very pleased to announce that The Trials is now available as well!

The Trials - Mythic Island Press LLC editionYou can find both ebooks at Amazon UK.

The Red: First Light is also available through Kobo to residents of Great Britain, Ireland, and New Zealand. The Trials will also soon be available at Kobo, hopefully within a week.

    Hi. I just wanted to let you know that I found out about you over at Charlie Stross’ blog, and now you have a new fan. Very good stuff!

  2. Linda Says:

    Thank you, Victor. It’s very much appreciated.

  3. Victor Wooddell (Demarquis) Says:

    You’re welcome. If you don’t mind questions, I’m interested in the concept of a Linked Combat Squad. I’m using something similar in a story of my own. Is there a good reference source that you could direct me to? Thanks!

  4. Linda Says:

    Hi Victor. That’s a little difficult, because I used so many different references when developing the LCS concept. But I’ve got a post at that talks in a general way about the technology in the book. Maybe it would be useful to you. You can find it here:

    I had found that, thanks. Oh well, I guess I’ll have to do it on my own. The kind of links I want to use are a lot less sophisticated than yours, no neural-nets required. But I wanted visual and tactile interfaces so that software could guide my protags through various tactical situations in a coordinated fashion, in real time. So the sensors they are wearing have to be relatively sophisticated, to help the computer assess the situation, and I’m up against a band-width problem. My protags are law enforcement, not soldiers, so civvies running around and close-quarters surprise attacks make things more complicated. I can hand-wave it if I have to, but I’d rather come up with something semi-plausible! Thanks for the link.
