"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
Congratulations to Gary Corby! However, I must admit, that I do not understand the swimming shark comment.
That's wonderful news!The Pericles Commission is a terrific story.Enjoy Australia! Avoid the jellyfish!
My wife and I almost never read the same books, but we both loved PERICLES COMMISSION. Well done, Gary!
Wohoo! I keep forgetting that I bought this and have it in my "comfort" drawer for when I need something really special. Maybe today is the day to break it out. Congrats, Gary!
Congratulations to Gary and his lovely agent (also remebering the pre-publication saga). I agree with Sarah W -- it's a great story and I'mm looking forward to book 2). With regard to the shark reference, see "the query shark" in the sidebar.
Congrats, I'm jealous.Take pictures, please.
Yay for Gary!Your fellow Australian sharks await. Who knows, you may decide to stay?
Congratulations Gary! Aussie, Aussie, Aussie, oi, oi, oi! Janet, let us know early if you're going to visit.
Thank you everyone! And Pierre is right, I wouldn't be here if it weren't for Janet, and all the fine people at FinePrint who work behind the scenes, and many friends who've helped me with critiques and research, and some terrific editors, and...just piles of support from lots of people.
Yay!I just read (and loved) that book. I'm glad to see it getting the recognition it deserves.
Congratulations, Gary!P.S. Aren't sharks always welcomed in Australia? I bet you'd feel like home :)
Congratulations to Gary! And you too!
It's not getting through the Panama Canal you have to worry about. You know that we eat shark over here, don't you. When the sharks aren't eating us.Come on over. We're a nice bunch, although some of us have a weird sense of humor.Congrats Gary.
Fantabulous book, clever man, jealous as hell, next year for sure, ha ha.Janet - You're one shark who will be very welcome in Oz. I'd offer a bed if I had one, but you probably won't make it to Brisbane. Hope you enjoy the trip and tell the folk back home we don't have too many kangaroos roaming the streets.Tonia
Brilliant! I'm so looking forward to reading this book. It's been on my Wishlist for ages! And Australia rules. Not that I'm biased or anything ^_^
Congrats to you and Gary and all the team at FPL. Gary can certainly write a fabulous story!We'd love to have you in Australia. Our sharks are very friendly. And we promise not to force feed you Vegemite. We'll even bake a pavlova for you.
You should definitely come for a visit to Aus, Janet. We'd love to have you here!
