Congrats!  That page can only be accessed if you log into facebook -- is there a link that doesn't require facebook login?

Well done K-Man!

Guess I'm gonna have to wait like Mouser for the Author's Cave write-up.

I'm in the "I don't do Facebook*" group too.

(*or Twitter, or Google+, or... :-\)

On a side note, I've been finding the TTS+ plugin for FBReader on Android to be pretty decent -- at least with the U.K. male voice (I think that's with the Google TTS system underneath).

IIUC, FBReader can handle (some?) mobi and epub.

ePub, partial ePub3, Kindle (mobipocket), fb2, RTF, Doc, HTML, text, PDF (plugin), DjVu (plugin), LitRes (plugin), and connect to Calibre for catalogs (plugin).

Thanks for the encouragement, guys :) Hopefully, my muse will strike again soon. In the meantime, I make a little extra cash proofreading for people.

I'd prefer to read it before I depart this planet for the next ... or at least have it to read on the way  ;)

Maybe we could just all transfer into the virtual such that our physical demise wouldn't matter? ;)

Highly experimental. Not even sure if Sethra will survive it...  :P

I'm not sure, I've had a sign saying "Willful UFO abductee" on my roof for some time but I'm still stuck on this planet.


Still, it'd be nice to have something to read  ;)

@4wd: Have you read the Necroscope series, by Brian Lumley? Very good stuff.

I've read all his books at least four times over.  His version of the vampire mythos is better than the original AFAIAC.

One of the very best authors I've ever read.

I downloaded Amazon's kinder app for PC, bought the kinder version of Kyrathaba Rising and read it today. Nicely done! One more vote for Kyrathaba Waxing to come soon. I haven't read this entire thread so maybe this has been covered, but I was pleasantly surprised that "Byron Milner" didn't turn into a fictional William Bryan Miller - if you have inserted yourself into the story it feels like you spread yourself out among more than one character.

PDF (plugin), DjVu (plugin)

I hadn't tried those yet -- I think there may be source code for the DjVu plugin but perhaps not for the PDF plugin.

It'll be nicer if TTS support comes about for the PDF and DjVu functionality.  Also nice would be a PDF plugin -- hmm, may be a MuPDF-based thing might be doable...
