Victor Gischler’s got a new book coming. Suprisingly, it’s announced to be available as an eBook the same day as the printed version!

According to the publisher, Simon & Schuster, these eBook stores will stock it: Amazon’s Kindle Store, Amazon.com, eBooks.com, ebooksabouteverything.com, Fictionwise, Mobipocket, Palm Digital Media, and Powells.com.

Which is, not surprisingly, a big FAIL from the publisher. Because — if the following listing is to be believed — right now it can be bought at the Sony eBook Store. Which isn’t even listed!

The first chapter can be sampled here.

Where Victor Gischler will be touring is here.

Victor has also set up a Vampire a Go-Go website.

And this is Victor Gischler’s Blogpocalypse.

I’ve read all of Victor’s books. They’re a hoot! You’ll want to get every single one.

And yes, Marvel comic fans, this is the same Victor Gischler who wrote Punisher and is writing Deadpool.

Sony Reader 101: For Mac Users

August 30, 2009

There is some confusion regarding the Mac and the Sony Reader.

Some people are confused, thinking it’s necessary to use Adobe Digital Editions to transfer eBooks to the Reader from the Mac.

No. Do not use Adobe Digital Editions. Use the Sony eBook Library software exclusively.

See this screensnap of About Sony eBook Library:

See the red highlighting? This means the Sony eBook Library software now takes over the functions of Adobe Digital Editions. While it’s probably still necessary to have ADE installed — for Adobe DRM authorization — ADE should not be used to transfer eBooks to the Reader. Only the Sony eBook Library software should be used for that.

Mac owners, feel free to chime in with Comments.
