In case you missed it, here's a reminder that we now have a very special free download on the main Solaris website. The book that inspired Adam Roberts' superlative Splinter was Jules Verne's obscure late novel Hector Servadac aka Off on a Comet. The mighty Adam has prepared a new translation of the Verne novel, the first for over a hundred years, and even reinstated some chapters excised in the original English edition. All this, together with a swathe of learned and pithy footnotes from Professor Roberts, is now up for free download as a PDF file.
That natty cover, meanwhile, is for the physical edition, which we made in a 1000-only, signed and numbered, slipcased edition together with Splinter, exclusively for UK bookchain Waterstones. Yes, they do international mail order. And yes, you better hurry.
