    she thought she’d done so well! I’m not going to tell her she’d be gutted! I know I am – boo hoo

    Guestford_junkie No I do not know everything, but I pretend that I do and I nod in all the right places

    THe only HARDcover is in German.

    Judging from what the FDØ said recently, it appears that Earthcore may get an update soon. He mentioned that “when Earthcore is re-released, it will take place after Ancestor” or something like that.

    Considering there’s more preference to the new content coming out between now and then. A and Scott have the next 5 or so years figured out already. Did you listen to the year in review for 2009?

    PANDEMIC (from Crown) is next, I start writing that in August (six weeks from now), will be out in autumn 2011.

    THE ALL-PRO (from Dark Øverlord Media) goes on sale on April 1st 2011.

    EARTHCORE (from Crown) is slated for autumn 2012 release.

    So a I feel a new plot line thread coming on….even if it only serves to make you laugh and realise why we do what we do.. and you do what you do SO well!

    I’m not complaining but why do the rewrites?

    I can understand that there may be a need for a reprint as more and more people are looking for your stuff but the rewrite?

    I apologise in advance if you have mentioned this before – I obviously have either forgotten or missed the podcast

    I’m all for the rewrite though as, with time passing, you may have better ideas, have more time to do the story justice and/or see a need to improve on the timeline/story arc.

    Don’t get me wrong, it’s not a complaint or a criticism – I was just wondering!

    Keep it up Mr Sigler – you rock!

    Part of my book deal with Crown involved them buying up EARTHCORE and ANCESTOR. They wanted the old books off the market, and also liked those novels and wanted to put them out again — after a re-write. So, it was part of the publication deal. As soon as I put out EARTHCORE, I’m done with re-writes, so bear with me until 2013 and we’ll be go-go grocery-getter good.

    If nothing else, it’s good for padding your resume.

    And thanks for replying, Mr Sigler.

    Bearing with you is not a problem – content is good!

    Sometime ago I looked into getting Earthcore off fleabay, but decided I will wait for the ‘official’ releases. Also, Buy books = free fiction and I’m happy with this business model.

    I contacted Scott a couple of years ago when Ancestor was just released in paperback to see if there was any stores in the US which had an original paperback copy of Earthcore. Unfortunately they are sold out everywhere. I’ve been keeping my eyes out ever since but the price on Amazon for sold copies just keeps going up and up! I sooooooo want one but I can’t afford that price! Scott seriously, if you find any copies around the house you gotta put this OJ out of his misery and sell it to me!
