Stars and seers.

Orion is my wife’s favorite constellation.  I think it’s the only thing she likes about the winter.  Even on the most bitterly cold nights I’ll catch her looking up at Orion and saying “hi” to him.  I shoot him a jealous glare and tell him to keep his, ahem, “sword” away from her.

I like the Orion constellation because its treasures were among my first celestial targets when I began stargazing.  The Trapezium, four baby stars cradled in the elegant haze of the Orion Nebula; Betelgeuse, which not only shines a very pretty red on clear nights, but is a star so awesomely huge that my brain cannot comprehend the sheer size of it; and Orion’s “companions,” the Pleiades and Sirius (M41 is a pretty star cluster in Canis Major that I enjoy, but sometimes have trouble spotting).  These are all beautiful gems in the night sky, so if you want to take up stargazing I recommend starting with the wonders of Orion.

I’m happy to say that all international pre-orders for the first Dominic Deegan omnibus have been sent out.  This week I’ll be starting on domestic pre-orders, but due to the sheer number of them, it’s going to take more time to get them all shipped out.  I’m hoping to have all domestic pre-orders out by the time I go to Ohayocon at the end of this month.  Anyone who’s ordered since the pre-order period ended should have received an email from me about this slight delay.  I’m packing, signing, and shipping books as fast as I can!  (I’m also waiting on more shipping materials to arrive.  I didn’t think I would run out!)  I thank you all for your continued patience with me.
