I sang the praises of customized Google News last week, and I have to continue in my adoration. My "science fiction" section has coughed up a new author that I probably would have missed otherwise. Check out the website for It's Only Temporary by Eric Shapiro. He has Chapter One posted which is quite nice of him. I look forward to the book coming out in July.
(Of course, as Cmdr Tal knows, if I could just make it on Chapter Ones I'd be a rich and wealthy miser...)
