Identity Theft in my hands

I received today, hot off the presses, the first copies of my new short-story collection Identity Theft and Other Stories, and I have to say it looks fabulous. Red Deer Press has always been known for beautiful books, and this one is no exception.

The cover and interior design are by Karen Petherick Thomas. Amy Hingston shepherded the book through production. Fiona Kelleghan copyedited the manuscript. Richard Dionne is the publisher of Red Deer Press, and Sharon Fitzhenry, who bought the book, is publisher of the parent company, Fitzhenry & Whiteside. The introduction is by Robert Charles Wilson.

The official launch parties for Identity Theft and Other Stories are:

Bakka-Phoenix Books
697 Queen Street West
Toronto, Ontario
Saturday, May 10, 2008, at 3:00 p.m.

United States:
Barnes & Noble
3349 Monroe Avenue
Pittsford (Rochester), New York
Saturday, June 21, 2008, at 7:00 p.m.

(The U.S. launch is a joint launch with Nick DiChario for his new novel Valley of Day-Glo, which I edited.)

This is my 19th science-fiction book: I've had 17 previous novels, and this is my second short-story collection (the first was 2000's Iterations, a new edition of which is coming out this month, in a cover that matches the one for Identity Theft).

(I don't count Relativity: Essays and Stories in the tally above, because it's mostly a nonfiction book ...)

Onward to number 20, which will be the novel Wake, coming in the spring of next year ...

How do I order a copy so I can have it in my hands as soon as possible?

Will there be copies on sale at Eeriecon? I have a twenty dollar bill (plus/minus change) with your name on it. Also one with your head on it. What was I thinking? How bored I must have been! :)
