Starship Sofa 3

Some of you may remember that Starship Sofa did an audio podcast of my Hugo and Locus Award-nominated novelette, "It Takes Two." They didn't and don't charge listeners. (Listen to it here. It starts at 14:48.) They can do that because every year they solicit donations to keep them going. This year, in service of that goal, they're selling a selection of nifty anthologies. Actually, it's just one anthology, but it comes in a variety of formats.

The anthology's only flaw: I'm not on the cover

The story of mine that included in this collection of fabulousness isn't "It Takes Two," it's "Songs of Bullfrogs, Cry of Geese." Here's the full list of contents for the plain text digital edition:


  • “Electric Ladyland” by Matthew Sanborn Smith (Illustrated by Daniel Tozer)

This enormously fabulous collection costs only £2.99 for the plain, unvarnished text, available in ePub, Kindle, PDF and so on.

But wait, there's more! So much more: varied paper editions, softcover and hardback, with and without extras. There's the edition with illustrations, that one with author photos (no, not of our sad faces--of our work space), the one with the extra special extras (I include a song--yes, me singing, about being very, very stoned in Amsterdam...), the one that has extras and is signed. And more. Prices range from £2.99 all the way up to the unique (yes, just one), first-off-the-press, with-everything, signed-by-everyone volume for £150.
