This is your notification that as of this week, Transfer Orbit has moved to a new home on Ghost. You can find the newsletter and all future updates here:
A couple of housekeeping notes:
I'm mirroring this email on both platforms, so you should receive one from each platform: if you only get the one from Substack, please check your spam filter. I've signed up for a couple of newsletters on Ghost, and I've had them end up stuck in there. So, if this ended up marked as spam somewhere, please unmark it or shift it from your "promotions" tab in your inbox!
I'll periodically send out messages from Substack to remind subscribers who might not be aware, but for all intends and purposes, we've fully shifted over to Ghost. Feel free to unsubscribe from Substack if you don't want that occasional notification.
Mid-transfer, paid subscribers seem to have had their memberships canceled. If you had a paid subscription, I've sent you an email about it so that we can get that back up and running. (Essentially, you'll have to sign up again). If weren't a subscriber, but enjoyed this newsletter, please consider signing up as a subscriber, which you can do here.
Things work a little differently on Ghost: there's no "like" button like Substack has, but I have enabled comments through a system called Cove. If you aren't logged in with your email address, it might prompt you to do that, but you can find comments down at the bottom of each page. You can also reply to emailed issues that you get.
This has been a complicated, somewhat frustrating move, but we're powering ahead. Thank you for your patronage, your reading, messages, and support over the last couple of weeks. Despite the headaches, I'm excited for what Ghost has to offer, and I'm looking forward to the next couple of weeks of stuff — April will be busy!
Here's what to look forward to:
April 1st, the April book list, which is packed with new books from folks like Jeff VanderMeer, Becky Chambers, and Martha Wells.
Later in April: in-depth looks at a couple of novels about climate change, as well as science fiction and the white power movement.
Reviews of books like Hench, and Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon (part of a longer piece about the 10 year anniversary of Game of Thrones).
The usual roundups of books, longer reads, and more.
As always, let me know if you have questions, or if there's anything I can help with regarding this move.
