Update from S.E. Hinton - "Coming out this coming Feb 28 is called "Some of Tim's Stories", a collection of short stories featuring the same characters, like a very abbrevated novel. It's being published by OU Press, and will be available in bookstores and on Amazon. It's adult in themes, but nothing kids couldn't read, although I think older readers will appreciate them more.

I'm excited because they are the best writing I've done yet. A nice way of celebrating 40 years of work. Since the stories are so short--I limited them to 1000 words each, the book also contains several interviews with me, done by my friend Teresa Miller, who is very active in "the book world". I hope it helps those who can't seem to find enough about me on the net."

That's such great news! I wonder what kind of short stories they are, if some of them are about teenagers like most of SE Hinton's books...
I can't wait for February!

Yay! Man, I can NOT wait for this to be released! It sounds good.

Is Feb 28th the date it'll be out in the Uk too? Or do we have to wait a year per usual :(

Ryker, if you end up having to wait, I'd be more than happy to purchase a book and mail it to you! :)

I can't wait for this book. It's being released in my birthday month. I'll have to ask for a Gift certificate for McNally Robinson. :)

Do ya have McNally Robinson or Coles? You can go to Chapters and get them to have it shipped in to their store for you.

sorry, I should have worded that better.

Go up to any register at Chapters, tell them there is a book you would like that they don't have in any of their stores, and they can order a copy of it for you from the publisher (or wherever they get their books). :)

The book came today finally, Finished the story and now reading the interviews. Have to say it took me a few pages to get into it but I think that was more to do with the fact that my head was thumping, reading usually sorts that out. I loved this book and I await with hopeful anticipation for another one.

I also have the puppy sister, Jamie got it off Santa, he's gone and lost it before we could read it. :D

i have a copy.
i was so happy.
i ordered it from amazon and it said it'd arrive around the first week in April, but i got it around the 19th/20th March.
I read it all that same day.
I absolutely loved it and i loved the interviews in the back.
they really help you to get to know S.E.Hinton and her characters better.

No it doesn't doesn't but the interviews in the back talk about the different books, it's great you should get it.

As my memory serves me correctly he's the guy they meet in the hospital. He saved or went out with a young black girl, and drove her to her neighbourhood or something. Then when her friends asked what she was doing in his car, she told them to beat him up to save herself from getting into to trouble for going around with a white guy. Well something like that. I'll have to read it again to make sure.

I ordered my copy from amazon.ca, but they aren't shipping until April 30th. Ah well, I can wait...sort of patiently LOL.

I love how she brings up the background characters. I've done that in my fan fic quite a bit.
