Fresh from the bindery, my first author’s copy of The Mirage:

    Dear Matt,
    where would you like me to order your book?

    PS: 26 days is waaaay to long!

    • Matt Ruff says:

      Please buy it wherever and however is most convenient for you… and I agree about the wait being too long!

    I am one of the lucky winners from the giveaway on Goodreads.

    I love the cover and the artwork on the spine is beautiful. It takes me back to Non-Western Art History class. Can’t wait to read the book!

    Fantastic!!! It looks GORGEOUS. I can’t wait to get my hands on a finished copy, too. Did you see the Feb. Indie Next List preview? I’d heard THE MIRAGE was featured, but I didn’t know they’d picked my blurb until this week. This is going to be huge– and wonderful! Congratulations!

    must be a phantastic feeling to hold the first issue in one’s hands. Hope, you celebrated it!
    Munich ordered months ago and can’t wait!!!
    Congrats Matt!

  5. Matt, that is a seriously good-looking book. You must be beaming!

    That looks fantastic! Can’t wait to get my hands on one…

    Will the UK edition have the same design and publication date?

    • Matt Ruff says:

      No one’s bought the British pub. rights yet, so there is no UK edition. The American edition should be available in Britain on February 7, though — or you can order it online from The Book Depository.
