    A giant green Tholothian Hat Symbiot on the front packaging? I'd buy it.

    When do we get Overdraft: The Coloring Book, Overdraft: The Lunchbox, and Overdraft: The Flamethrower?

    I particularly await that last one.

    I'm still waiting for Valor-Os, the latest breakfast sensation from Goodvalor's. [face_waiting]

    Thanks for posting, I'll have to check that out. The summary sounds ridiculously fun.

    It does sound like Firefly with a banker instead of a doctor.

    Kindle, though. I'll wait for the book, guess that'll be cheaper. ;)

    The physical book (and a full-length e-book version) will be out at the end of the serialization period this summer; I'll post the ISBN number and link when I have it. The cover artist, by the way, is Paul Youll, who did the covers for SCOUNDRELS and the ESSENTIAL READER'S COMPANION -- and my editor, David Pomerico, was assistant editor on LOST TRIBE OF THE SITH. So there are some definite SW pedigrees involved here.

    I think it's a really cool way to merge the release tempo of comics with prose; I look forward to doing more of it. Your recommendations placed on Amazon will help a lot.

    And I plan to put supplemental material about the "Whirliverse" on my website as the story goes along: I just have to ask permission from the owner of the IP. (Oh, wait, that's me! :) )

    Heh! I just need to remember where all my notes are! This is the trick with writing this way: I'm writing Episode 6 now while Episode 1 is being transmitted. It's like writing in the comics world -- earlier chapters are at various stages of proofreading, so any changes I make have to be reflected everywhere.

    It's GOOD!! :D And I thought it would be $2 per episode. The whole book for $2 is a steal!

    (I LOL'd at the cereal box. [face_laugh] One of the better AFD jokes.)

    Just got read the first installment - it was definitely a fun read. Looking forward to future installments! Do you know if there are any plans to include "Human Error" in the eventual TPB of Overdraft: The Orion Offensive?

    I'm about halfway through the first installment, I'm alternating between it and Dark Tide II: Ruin. Definitely a good read and reminds me a lot of Firefly.

    Darth, it's not going to be part of the main book, but I am looking at releasing it myself, perhaps as a freebie when the trade paperback comes out. That's still a little down the road.

    And I have put the first supplement online, by posting my running glossary for the series on my site. It's not intended to be encyclopedic, but is rather the guide I was using as I went along, and it includes what was in "Human Error." I intend to update that after every new episode (#2 out on Tuesday) and add timelines and some other goodies.

    ...I was so gonna buy this, but apparently it's not available in my puny little country -- why that would be a problem with electronic publications I don't see, but there it is (not).[face_dunno] Well I guess I'll just have to wait until the physical book comes out then... though I so love serial fiction :(

    Sounds awesome, anyway! Must not forget about this one.

    I haven't heard specifically why the Serials aren't on Amazon's overseas partner systems, but I would suspect it's because it's very new (they started them late last year and we're about the tenth one they've done) and there's probably some set-up involved that hasn't taken place yet. That's just a guess, of course. The collected ebook and physical book will be available overseas -- that, I know.

    I blame Doctor Doom.
