More “Infoquake” Reviews, LJ Talk Show, Coming Appearances

The next few weeks are going to be pretty intense for me on the Infoquake promotional front. An audio interview, two conventions, and four readings/signings… whew! Here’s the latest news:

  • Rave Intergalactic Medicine Show Review for Infoquake. John Joseph “Slush God” Adams has given Infoquake a superlative review in the latest issue of Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, saying: “If all novels were as chockfull of ideas as Infoquake is, then science fiction would never have to worry about a shortage of sense of wonder…. Few first novelists manage as assured a debut as Infoquake; almost all new authors stumble around a bit in their first novel, but Edelman comes off as a seasoned professional.”
  • Long Author Interview on LiveJournal Talk Show. Dean Anderson of the LiveJournal Talk Show has published a very long instant messaging interview with me in four separate parts. Most of the discussion about Infoquake appears in part two, with chat about writing, blogging, promotion, and lots more in parts one, three, and four.
  • Entire First Section of Infoquake Now Online. The entire first section of the novel, titled “Number One on Primo’s” and consisting of chapters 1 through 7, can now be read online at the Infoquake website. All seven chapters are also available for download in Microsoft Word, Adobe Acrobat, and plain text formats. “Number One on Primo’s” will soon be available in its entirety on MP3 podcast read by me as well.

While I’ve got your attention, I’d also like to give a shout-out to my friend and former co-worker Steven Oliverez. I recently discovered that Steve published a fantasy novel called The Elder Staves, and, solely through his own promotional wizardry, got the book up to the #25 slot on the Amazon Fantasy Bestseller list. I’ll let the copy of the back cover of The Elder Staves speak for itself:

“The sky-city of Tyr, floating above the frozen wasteland of a dead world, is a place of spells and skyscrapers, where the ruling council of elders struggles to maintain its power against the growing influence of technology. A clandestine rebellion is underway, assassinating nobles and threatening to topple the Council entirely, while far beneath the city a haunting, malevolent presence from Tyr’s mystical past silently gathers strength. But a far more pressing issue is at hand — for the first time since its founding millennia ago, Tyr has begun falling toward the surface.”
