RED SNOW: the new Special X thriller

A place for Sladists to share their thoughts on Michael Slade and his work...

Postby MarylandManson » Tue Dec 22, 2009 6:47 pm

Interesting! My copy (preordered thru Amazon.ca) shipped yesterday. I suspect they don't hang around in the warehouses too long.

So for RED SNOW, if not other books, the timetable looked something like this:

12/14 Arrived at Penguin warehouse
12/15 Shipped from Penguin to Chapters
12/16 Shipped from Chapters warehouse to individual recipients
12/17 Received in Ontario mailboxes!
12/18 Shipped from Penguin to Amazon.ca
12/21 Shipped from Amazon.ca to individual recipients

Or some such. Which could mean that Chapters is the super-fast-track over Amazon.ca for those who want a copy of the book as quickly as possible. At least this time around. Anyhow, it's helpful for future reference.

By the way, e.t., did your copy arrive via Canada Post or another carrier? U.S. Postal Service is actually rather speedy--just wondering how Canada Post does.

Thanks! MM

Edited to add:

Well, I would have had a copy today if the DHL Express driver had bothered to look around the side of my house, where I was building a snow-saucer course for my daughters! So close, yet so far...

Speaking of girls and winter fun...would that be Pink Snow?

Sladists,

THE TORONTO STAR has the largest circulation in Canada. Not only is it the paper where Ernest Hemingway cut his teeth...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dateline:_Toronto

...but Slade's first job was as a paperboy for the cross-Canada STAR WEEKLY.

Here's the STAR's review of RED SNOW on Sunday, January 10:

Going to have to stop looking at these reviews. The one above being very good in hooking people in, but possibly giving a little too much away.

Still think a tv series, made by the same people who did Harpers Island would be cool. And if not RED SNOW, imagine what they could do with RIPPER. Which also has people dying on an island...

Dead Write came through with my copy to the US and I just finished Red Snow. Another incredible mind-ride and reading experience. Well done!
