So Uptown Local and Other Interventions is finally ready!

I've been wanting to collect a batch of favorite stories together for a while now, and an ebook seemed like the perfect way to go. (The paper version will follow later: we'll be converting this along with the new international ebook editions of the Young Wizards books.)

The anthology contains:
  • In The Company of Heroes -- A billionaire "living the dream" goes on a desperate quest for the one thing he needs to make his life perfect: a very special comic book...

  • The Rizzoli Bag -- A sad young man in a Roman cafe is offered a once-in-a-lifetime bargain...

  • Out of the Frying Pan -- The life of a part-time witch working in a shopping mall is turned upside down in a day...

  • The Queen and the Thief and the Dragon -- A (fairy) tale of the True West, and a young monarch's solution to a thorny diplomatic problem...

  • Bears -- An ancient sorrow (with a modern twist) wanders through the tumult of a pre-Lenten street carnival...

  • The Fix -- In the dark guts of Rome's Colosseum, a slave boy with an impossible dream becomes entangled in the machinations of immortals...

  • Herself -- In the heart of Dublin, something is killing the People of the Hills -- and it's going to take Ireland's only superhero to stop it...

  • Hopper Painting -- Desolation and redemption in a midnight diner...

  • The Back Door -- Two terrorists meet in Zurich to carry out a very unusual heist with a confederate who's more dangerous than they imagine...
...And naturally the title story, which hasn't been in print since it appeared in the So You Want to Be a Wizard 20th anniversary hardcover: and the only other Young Wizards short story, Theobroma.

Uptown Local and Other Interventions
is available for purchase in DRM-free Kindle / .mobi and Nook / iPad / .ePub formats here and (soon) at the DianeDuane.com online bookshop for USD $5.99.

If you're interested in grabbing a copy, click here for the sales page at DianeDuane.com. It's got the PayPal buttons.

BTW, this is important: If by chance you saw the tweet about the anthology last night and bought a copy then or early this morning, your copy is missing a vital page or two of the story "Herself". Please use the download link in your confirmation email to download another copy, as the missing material has been restored. We'll also be emailing all the affected purchasers new copies of the file as soon as we make a few other corrections to the text.

The stats, they are a-risin'. And the Irish desserts are getting a lot of attention. I commend them to you (click on the image for the full collection).

That's the Baileys Irish Cream Marble Cheesecake there. I can't tell you how hard it was to actually let the neighbors eat some of that. (droooool)
