For those curious, more details about the deal (and me), including the reveal of the title for the sequel to Lock In.

http://whatever.scalzi.com/2015/05/25/about-that-deal/
I know a lot of you have questions about the book deal I just agreed to, so let me just do that “fake interview” thing I do to answer some of the big ones. Let's begin, shall we? Wait, what happened? Sorry, I was really high last night. Fair enough. Here's the story in the New York Times, ...

Anyone have experience with Mitsubishi split level AC systems? Debating between that and just updating part of the HVAC.
Price is more for the Mitsubishi, but payments would be still within budget and we could retire our ancient ductwork (not going to replace that at the moment. Ductwork is insanely expensive).

The Fifth House is almost here

My new book, The Fifth House is available on May 11th!

Following closely on the events of The Only City Left, Allin Arcady searches for his lost love. Tyena Branch struggles to scavenge enough food to keep her mother and herself alive. And in the cat city of Pudlington, the uneasy truce between humans and felines is already faltering.

Into this turmoil enters the true power behind Doyle Arcady’s reign... The Fifth House.

DRM-Free everywhere. Free Kindle version with purchase of the softcover. No werebeasts were harmed in the making of this book.

Early Reviews for The Fifth House:

1) Mack Moyer: http://www.mackmoyer.com/?p=118

“It seems like every novel taking place after the fall of human civilization spends chapter upon chapter telling us how things like zombies and laser swords came about. Goldman does none of that. His world is full of talking cats, ghosts, monsters and tiny coils that can turn you into a werebear (or perhaps a squid). It’s just awesome for the sake of being awesome.”

2) Ryan Toxopeus: http://ryantoxorants.blogspot.ca/2015/04/review-fifth-house-by-andy-goldman.html

“The way themes re-emerged from the first book to be bigger and badder than before was excellent. The voices of the two main characters were distinct. I found myself liking Allin's humour more than Tyena's straight shooting attitude, but both were well written.”

3) Galit Balli: http://thereadingbud.com/2015/05/05/book-review-the-fifth-house-arc/

“I had high expectations from this book as I just finished reading the first only a few weeks ago and I am so happy it didn’t fall and this book was such a wonderful read. It was fast paced with lots of action scenes and twists and turns that can make you scream at the book.”

This is the fifth entry in a series where I’ll be talking about the inspiration behind some of my characters. Miyoko Raymond is the fifth main character in the Traveling Society series. As you can probably tell from her name, she is of Japanese descent.…

Story
Tagline
I write legends of things unseen in recorded time.
Introduction
A long time ago someone called me "eclectic". That's probably the best way to think about me.

Writing Credits
  • The Staff of Moses, an adventure novel set in the modern cities and ancient sands of Egypt.
  • The Eye of Odin, is the sequel to The Staff of Moses. When Oliver Lucas encounters a rival treasure hunter, he is drawn into an international conspiracy that threatens to destroy him. Packed with ancient curses, thrilling action, and the wrathful gods of the old Norse world, The Eye of Odin takes Oliver to places he had never dared to imagine. 
  • Burning in the Void is a scifi novel set aboard an interstellar colony ship which has been stranded between the stars for 300 years. 
  • Beasts of Dream is a short story about a woman who is haunted by monster that has the power to escape from her dreams.
  • The Dungeon Keeper's Wife is a short story about a young girl who meets her mother for the first time when she is trapped in the deepest cell of a dungeon.
  • Hunger for Fire, a short story loosely based on my own experiences camping in remote places, which introduces a series of modern fairy tales I call the Nearworld series. 
  • Gravity, a short story about a woman named Asha who is stranded in space, completely alone, after a solar flare damages the space station in which she lives and the other crew meet a series of violent deaths. This is an early entry in a fantasy series that I am developing.

Great menu of both vegetarian friendly and classic sushi, as well as sides. The $9.99 lunch special (all you can eat, just don't order more than you can eat) is an amazing deal. Highly recommended.
