I've been harassing those nice people at Harcourt for information about the status of This World We Live In advance reading copies (aka ARCs), and now I have some (information, not ARCs).
The ARCs will be published circa Oct. 12 and they'll be sending me a box of them that week.
From the sound of it, I'll be getting more ARCs than I'll need, and if that's the case, I'll be sharing the extras with people here. Assuming, of course, that people here will want one. If not, I'm sure Scooter will be more than happy to shred them all over the apartment.
When the ARC box arrives, I'll let you all know. Well, all of you except Scooter!
