That monstrous machine called the publishing industry is about to extrude another book of mine. Advance reading copies of Invisible Armies have been released into the wild, and the book will officially be on sale in Canada at the end of this month, which in practice probably means you can expect it in bookstores in early May. Or, of course, you can buy it from Amazon.ca or Indigo.ca . If you're on the wrong side of the Atlantic, you'll have to wait a couple months yet . Meanwhile, I also have an article appearing in the May issue of The Walrus , and I've just finished the first draft of my next book, tentatively titled Absolute Darkness , and set in Africa.
