Pre-orders for Schlock Mercenary: Massively Parallel, the eleventh in the current series, will open on Wednesday, October 15th, at around 8:00 AM Mountain time.
This is the largest Schlock Mercenary book we’ve ever done. 255 full-color pages, lots of new margin art and footnotes, and a 13 page bonus story that features my writing atop art from me, Brenda Hickey, Keliana Tayler, and Travis Walton.
We’re also going to be opening pre-orders for the 2015 calendar at the same time. This will save you money on shipping, but wait, there’s more. (Because there’s always but-wait-there’s-more.)
The slipcase for books 6 through 11 is part of this same print run. Yes, the slipcase, Massively Parallel, and the calendar will all fit inside a single flat-rate postage box. And if you haven’t yet grabbed Book 10, Longshoreman of the Apocalypse, that’ll fit too!
Do you not yet have a slipcase for the first five books? Well, we reprinted those, so they’ll be back in stock. Yes, we’ll have boxed-set bundles available for the first five books as well as for books 6 through 11, and you’ll also be able to buy empty slipcases. (Of course, the bundle prices miiiight tempt you into buying full slipcases, and then giving the extra books to a friend.)
