Yea, I am checking every day too. I imagine we are going to be slowed way down since the book does not come out for 15 more months.

On his Facebook wall, someone asked RFC about the delay in snippeting. His response was:

"Because I hit a wall with travel, deadlines, and Real Life stuff. Patience!"

Let's see. We're dispersed, we harass the snot out of people, we pop up at the oddest times and places... short of flying bullets and explosions, we sure do fit the description of a guerillia outfit.

we might be in trouble.

My biggest gripe is that Tor doesn't do E-ARCs! How can any commercial operation fail to see the benefit about getting two sales for one book? A lot of us jump onto the e-arc, and then go out to get the finished product when it's finally released. Don't they WANT to make money? :?: :?: :lol:

If you like these snippets, check out the Gordian Protocol forum, where you will find the snippets for "The Valkyrie Protocol" - the sequel to TGP.

Also check out the Marmelukes forum, as there is where David is posting the snippets for that book (which is the culmination of the Janassaries series by Jerry Pournelle).
