Aiming for "Peak" Traffic

Returning visitors will notice the nifty new Apex Book Company widget off to the left. I figured after the previous post, I should put my money where my mouth is and lend them some support. Not only have I purchased some of their books, but I'm flying their widget here for the foreseeable future, to keep both you and me informed of their literary doings. There may be other news here, but more about that later...
Once again, I'll reiterate that anything from this company is worth checking out. I've yet to be disappointed with a purchase from them, and don't see any reason why that should change. I'm currently reading Michael Burstein's "I Remember the Future" (available from the Apex store in hardcover and from Fictionwise in handy ebook format), and I'm enjoying it so much that I've purchased a hardcover copy for a friend of mine. As I said in my note to said friend, this is a book that makes you feel more human for having read it. Burstein manages to combine just enough hard sci fi to convince you that you've learned something, with humanist themes that appeal to your empathy. It's good sci-fi, not space opera, in the tradition of some of the great masters like Asimov and Clarke, and well worth the read.
So, once again...Apex. Read. Buy. Go.....
