Infoquake News: Suite101 Interview, Library Journal Review, B&N Rave

More Infoquake-y goodness. (As previously mentioned, the book is definitely shipping from Amazon and has been seen at numerous Books-a-Millions around the country.)

  • Infoquake by David Louis EdelmanInterview with Cat Rambo on Suite101. Science fiction writer, Clarion West graduate, and Armageddon MUD maven Cat Rambo has published an interview with me on Suite101. The interview mostly talks about promotional techniques I’ve been using to get the word out about Infoquake. Favorite quote: “I didn’t want any of the thriller clichés that you often see in business novels. I wanted to see if I could really write an exciting novel about marketing meetings and product launches.” Close runner-up: “You’re asking a guy who’s both a web programmer and a science fiction writer what kind of clothes he wears? You are brave.” (I should also point out that Cat has a piece in Sybil’s Garage #3, whose diligent editor/publisher Matthew Kressel I was fortunate enough to meet at ReaderCon last weekend.)
  • Library Journal Review. Library Journal had a brief review of Infoquake in its round-up of the latest science fiction. Money quote: “In web designer and programmer Edelman’s first novel, he moves quickly from scene to scene, building suspense with believable characters and in-the-know technical expertise.”
  • B&N Calls Infoquake “One of the Most Impressive SF Debuts in Years.” Infoquake is scheduled to be the headline feature in next month’s Barnes & Noble Explorations newsletter, with a full-fledged review and interview with me by Paul Goat Allen. Here’s what Paul has to say, in part: “Brilliantly blending the cutthroat intrigues of the high-tech business world with revolutionary world building, Edelman could quite possibly be the illegitimate lovechild of Donald Trump and Vernor Vinge. Infoquake is one of the most impressive science fiction debuts to come along in years — highly recommended.”
  • Short Brain Parade Interview on Meme Therapy. As a follow-up to my recent full interview with Meme Therapy, I was lucky enough to contribute to a couple of their Brain Parade round-ups. This past week, the Meme Therapists published my bit in their round-up on government and privacy called “Little Brother Is Watching.”
  • Reading Scheduled in Northern Virginia Sept. 7. I’m going to be doing select readings from Infoquake later this summer. The first one confirmed so far is at Barnes & Noble in Reston, Virginia on September 7th at 7:30 PM. More to follow!

Coming soon: chapters 6 and 7 online, chapters 5 through 7 of the Infoquake podcast, more background articles, and more reading dates.
