The link to download your ebook is in the SHIPPING confirmation email that came out around late September/early October. It came from Empty Set Entertainment, and in the body of the email there should be a link to the zip file containing the champion ebook.
It seems that some of the emails that went out contained a dead link for the ebook download. Shoot an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and A should take care of you. Anyone who pre-ordered the hardcover receives the ebook for free.
This is an interesting question. THE CHAMPION is the only book that describes the AWAY jersey, and it does so both in the text and the full-color insert in the hardcover.
AWAY jersey in the CHAMPION text:
Black-trimmed copper numbers
Away jersey in THE CHAMPION insert:
Silver and White jersey with gold trim
White sleeves with gold trim
Silver-trimmed copper number
You didn’t ask, but there’s a minor conflict in the HOME jerseys as well.
HOME jersey in THE STARTER and THE MVP text:
Silver-trimmed copper numbers
HOME jersey in THE CHAMPION insert:
Gold jersey with black trim
Silver-trimmed copper numbers
Perhaps @scottsigler can rule on the canonical description. After all, the Krakens just re-did their helmets, so it’s quite possible that the insert reflects the new look for the Jacks’ next season.
I have this exact same thought every time I listen to the audio book. The other cross media format I would love to see is a Madden style video game. I’ve boycotted Madden since they bought the exclusive rights to the NFL. So I’ve been wanting to play a good football game. Plus, with the whole inter species concept, it would add whole new level of game play.
I have just finished listening to episode 7 of The Champion podcast, and I think the crawling machines must be a giveaway. Either the enemy of the Rocktopi lost the tech to the rocktopi or yeah, a big surprise next week! Cant wait!
In the meantime, I also listened to the gospel of the FDO ( he rocks! ) at the end of the episode and I would like to say just two things.
1 – Thanks, FDO, for your great stories, forums, podcasts, books, and all the fun you have given to me as a junkie.
2 – Hang in there, FDO. Do not let a setback draw you down. You Rock, no bout adout it – just have a little discipline….!? I look forward to adding your latest novels to my bookshelf, your latest podcasts to my PC and MP3 player, and sharing the stank with members of my family who already weep at the loss of Dawsey, the loss of a certain QB pinkie and the loss of Mummy – so sad, too bad. So stand firm, FDO, and continue to smear the stank!
I’m having problems finding the eBook download as well.
Personally, I didn’t have any problems pre-ordering through the site (although I’m having a hell of a time trying to find my order history, etc.).
Anyone know where the eBook download link is?
…Rocktopi? Are they the aliens that were chasing the Rocktopi (in Earthcore)?
Note that I haven’t read the Champion yet. Just been following along with the podcast so far. (I need to DL the eBook and dig in…don’t want to mess up my hardcover edition. ;))
After listening to last night’s episode, I’m struck with a flurry of thoughts and questions:
1) Are the Portath and the Rocktopi the same race?
2) Are the Portath the race that were chasing the Rocktopi? (NOTE that the aliens chasing the Rocktopi also seem to be the hungry aliens from the Crypt short “The Tank”.)
3) If they are Rocktopi, did they steal their technology from the aliens chasing them or did the aliens steal the tech from the Rocktopi?
4) If they are Rocktopi, the ship designs would make sense from an evolutionary standpoint, considering the centuries old, dumbbell design in Earthcore.
Just a few thoughts that have been floating around in my head.
I just got home from the Readcon event in Greeley, CO, it was an awesome time. Scotts read the first chapters of Alive and I can’t wait until the book comes out. Then of course, I don’t have to – everyone who stayed until the end received a copy of the trade paperback version. For that I would like to thank Del Ray for letting Scott hand out a few copies. I will be sure to post reviews online and will per-order a copy.
Hanging out with Scott, A Real Girl, and the rest of the die-hards at Patrick’s Pub was a lot of fun. Lots of great stories
I havn’t listned to or read Earthcore in about 2 years. While listening to the audiobook I had this feeling the whole time like “how do I know of these aliens” then it clicked.
I loved the explaination of the speciest and the history. Might have to back and listen to Earthcore again.
And I’m in. Thanks! I can’t promise that I’ll be very active, since I don’t use facebook too much, but I figured it couldn’t hurt to join the group anyway.
Anyone know if the coloring for the away jerseys has been described in any of the books?
Your team AND mine, @athanas! Bears can’t seem to win at home to save their lives, and their road record ain’t that great either. **sigh** Another season down the drain.Anonymous October 23, 2014 at 1:52 am
