Good day

More traffic coming this way; star desi blogger Amardeep Singh has kind things to say about Simoqin. In case anyones come here from there though, have to say: The book’s available in the US, but wont be for long – I dont have a US publisher, and these are copies Penguin US imported from Penguin India. Thanks Amardeep.

  3. I just picked it up from my local Borders and currently whizzing through it! It was very cool to just find it on the shelf there along with the Asimovs and the Clarkes 🙂

  9. I wasn’t able to put this book down. I finished it in 24 hours. With just time out to change diapers and feeding the kids.

    Excellent job. I hope you keep at it. I hope to discover a slowly developing world that you’ve started to spin.

    Do you have any articles that you’ve written about as backgrounder? I’d be very interested.
