THE MAD SCIENTIST'S GUIDE is coming!



THE MAD SCIENTIST'S GUIDE TO WORLD DOMINATION (the anthology that contains Diana Gabaldon's story, "The Space Between") will be published in the US on Tuesday, February 19.

For those of you who don't know, "The Space Between" is a novella (about 40,000 words) that tells the story of Young Ian's brother Michael and Marsali's sister Joan, whom we met in AN ECHO IN THE BONE, as well as the Comte St. Germain (no, he's not dead!)

This story is the same one that was published last November in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand as part of A TRAIL OF FIRE, but it hasn't been widely available in the US until now.

So I was just wondering.....

a) How many of you have pre-ordered the book (in any format, including Kindle, Nook, or other e-book), or are planning to?

b) How many of you are planning to buy it on or after the release date?

c) If you are planning to buy the book, have you already read "The Space Between"?

I personally am not going to pre-order this one, since I already have A TRAIL OF FIRE.  But I'll certainly take a look at it in the bookstore.

I'm looking forward to seeing more people's reactions to "The Space Between"!  I hope those of you who are waiting for THE MAD SCIENTIST'S GUIDE TO WORLD DOMINATION in order to read the story will post your reactions here (or on Compuserve, or on Diana Gabaldon's Facebook page) after you've read it.

It's a wonderful story, with lots of potential for speculation!

I'm not interested as I have "A Trail of Fire," which is readily available in the U.S. and Canada from amazon.co.uk at a reasonable price. I think "A Trial of Fire" is the best buy as you get four of Diana's stories in one place. The stories other than Diana's in anthologies haven't been all that good IMHO.
