Calgary Sun: Bomb hoax costly, Mormon fined $2,000 - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
This was another headline 30 years ago today, when my days ahead looked fatter but my wallet was definitely thinner.

But what was so costly for me, you can read about for a pittance. While supplies last, signed editions of my memoir, The Accidental Terrorist, are only $19.95 in hardcover, and $11.95 in trade paperback. And you can get the ebook edition for a ridiculously low 99 cents!

Not only that, but you can even enter at Goodreads to win one of ten free copies of the trade paperback. But hurry! Like my days in Canada, there isn't much time left for these offers.

This was the headline 30 years ago today. I was, to my vast relief, a free man, but much poorer for the experience.

But what cost me big, you can get for cheap. While supplies last, signed editions of my memoir, The Accidental Terrorist, are only $19.95 in hardcover, and $11.95 in trade paperback. And you can get the ebook edition for a ridiculously low 99 cents!

Not only that, but you can even enter at Goodreads to win one of ten free copies of the trade paperback. But hurry! Like my time in Canada, the days of these sales are numbered.

Thirty years ago today was the day I returned to court in Calgary, Alberta, to be sentenced after pleading guilty to public mischief.

You could tune in here tomorrow to see how things turned out for me, or you could just pick up a copy of the ebook edition of The Accidental Terrorist on sale for 99¢ and find out the old-fashioned way.

Of the memoir, Kristine Kathryn Rusch said, "The Accidental Terrorist reads like a novel instead of a memoir. Only in novel form, no one would have ever believed these events could have happened. Believe it. William Shunn lived every word of this book. That he can share it so eloquently is a tribute not just to his writing skill, but his strengths as a human being."

Get yourself a copy today.

Calgary Herald: Missionary faces trial over hoax at airport - click to view - mousewheel to zoom
It was 30 years ago today that my trial over charges stemming from a false bomb threat got underway in Provincial Court in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. A kid who didn't want to be a missionary in the first place was now facing up to ten years in prison for trying to prevent another kid from no longer being a missionary. It was an upside-down world, and I was hanging on for dear life.

How I got there and what came after is the story told in my memoir, The Accidental Terrorist: Confessions of a Reluctant Missionary. In observance of the 30th anniversary of the events it chronicles, my publisher, Sinister Regard, is offering U.S. customers free shipping and huge discounts on signed editions of the book:

Hardcover: regularly $27.95 now $19.95

Trade paperback: regularly $15.95 now $11.95

I'll even personalize it for you, if you like. You can also get the ebook edition for only 99¢, or enter at Goodreads to win a free paperback copy! But hurry, supplies are limited. And I'm sure you're eager to find out whether or not I made it out alive.

Meet our readers: Keith R.A. DeCandido



Keith R.A. DeCandido has been writing professionally since 1994, which means he's been doing it for 23 years. He could've sworn he was a young turk of publishing just yesterday, and is rather appalled to see that he is now a grizzled veteran, and is well on his way to being an old fart. Still, he's got more than 50 novels, almost 100 short stories, a mess of comic books, and tons of nonfiction to show for those 23 years.

His recent and upcoming work includes the Marvel's "Tales of Asgard" trilogy of prose novels, including Marvel's Thor: Dueling with Giants, Sif: Even Dragons Have Their Endings, and Warriors Three: Godhood's End; the Stargate SG-1 novel Kali's Wrath; Mermaid Precinct, the latest in his fantasy/police procedural series; A Furnace Sealed, the first in his new urban fantasy series about a nice Jewish boy from the Bronx who hunts monsters; three novellas in the Super City Cops series, Avenging Amethyst, Undercover Blues, and Secret Identities; the short-story collection Without a License: The Fantastic Worlds of Keith R.A. DeCandido; and short stories in the anthologies Aliens: Bug Hunt, Altered States of the Union, Baker Street Irregulars Volumes 1 & 2, A Baker's Dozen of Magic, Joe Ledger: Unstoppable, Limbus Inc. Book 3, Nights of the Living Dead, The Side of Good/The Side of Evil, TV Gods: Summer Programming, V-Wars: Night Terrors, and The X-Files: Trust No One. In 2009, he was given a Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Association of Media Tie-in Writers, which means he never needs to achieve anything ever again.

His rewatches of classic TV shows (various series in the Star Trek and Stargate franchises, as well as the 1966 Batman) have been appearing twice weekly on Tor.com since 2011. He's also a professional musician (currently the percussionist for the parody band Boogie Knights), an editor of more than 25 years' standing (working for clients both corporate and private), a second-degree black belt in karate (which he teaches to both children and adults), and probably some other stuff that he can't remember due to the lack of sleep. Find out less at DeCandido.net.



Please join Keith and all our spectacular readers for Line Break #5, Saturday, March 4, 3:00 p.m. at Q.E.D. in Astoria. Tickets are only 7 bucks!

"It was 30 years ago today, that the Mounties hauled the kid away..."

Or, if you're so minded, you could pick up a copy of The Accidental Terrorist, the acclaimed memoir in which Bill explains what happened before, during, and after that fateful arrest. All ebook versions are on sale for only 99 cents, and prices are slashed on signed print editions.

And please, come see Bill when he hosts the fifth issue of Line Break, on Saturday, March 4th, 3:00 pm at Q.E.D. in Astoria, Queens.
