SEAL Team 666 Premier Announced

Reactions:  
Do you want to get your hands on SEAL Team 666 two weeks before its official release? 

There's only one way you can make this happen.

Attend TusCon 39. (Information)

What is this you say? Is this a new radioactive isotope? Is it new rocket ship built by Raytheon?

TusCon is only the oldest Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Convention in Arizona. Guests of Honor have included Theodore Sturgeon, Vernor Vinge, Robert Bloch, Karl Edward Wagner, Diana Gabaldon, John Ringo, Laurell K. Hamilton, Weston Ochse, Stephen R. Donaldson, Tim Powers, Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher and Shannon K. Butcher, to name just a few. This years Guest of Honor recipient is S.M. Stirling. 

It's really a fabulous convention at an all suite hotel, where for far less than a hundred bucks a day you can have a great room, meet terrific people, and be able to swim in an outdoor pool in November.

MaryElizabeth Hart, publicity manager for Mysterious Galaxy, has arranged to have the first hardback copies of SEAL Team 666 available for convention goers. She had to pull some strings and bend back some fingers to make this happen, but in the spirit of never-say-die special operations forces, she came through.

I don't know the exact time yet when we'll hold a release party for SEAL Team 666. I'll get with the convention committee and see when they want to do it. 

But when I know, you will know.

All you have to do is be there.
