Regarding the trade edition from Amazon, it shows as “Temporarily Out of Stock.” I checked in with Bill at Subterranean this morning, and he said that Amazon’s carrier was late picking up their shipments, so Amazon should have the books soon, if they don’t already.

In addition to the starred review from Publishers Weekly, two more fantastic, non-spoiler reviews of Freedom of the Mask were posted this week.

NetGalley reviewer Chris concludes:

“5 stars. The type of book that is the reason we love stories. Imagination too large for a movie can only exist in books like this. Adventure just doesn’t get any better.”

Matthew quickly becomes embroiled in mysteries involving fellow inmate Daniel Defoe; a gin-running street gang, the Black-Eyed Broodies; a kidnapped Italian opera singer; and a masked avenger named Albion, whose exploits are sensationalized (along with Matthew’s) in a penny dreadful broadsheet, the Pin
