The singular journey of Odd Thomas is approaching its unforgettable conclusion in Saint Odd. But before Odd’s destiny is revealed, this exclusive eBook short story looks back—way back—to where it all began for Odd Thomas and Stormy Llewellyn, two souls who are destined to be together forever.

Amid the dizzying rides, tantalizing games of chance, and fanciful attractions of a state fair, two teenage sweethearts on the cusp of life and love’s pleasures find their way to a shadowy carnival tent brimming with curiosities. There, from the bizarre and enthralling Gypsy Mummy, a mechanized merchant of dreams and prognosticator of tomorrows, the young couple learns what fate promises for them. But fate, for Odd Thomas and Stormy Llewellyn, is something altogether different: full of dark corners, sharp edges, and things no seer or soothsayer could ever anticipate.

And for Odd Thomas, a gallant fry cook from a sleepy California desert town, the future beckons—to listen to unquiet spirits, pursue unsettling mysteries, and learn shocking truths . . . for a purpose far greater than himself.

I tried to buy it but it's not available yet. I wonder why they don't have the pre-order option.
I am inclined to believe in parallel worlds filled with darkbound Snow and Odd adventures.

Wait what? I pre-ordered it way back in September.

Wasn't listed on the US amazon page till recently. Shows you can pre-order it now.

I just pre-ordered it myself, though pre-ordering an ebook is kind of useless except that it'll download as soon as it is available. (Not like you have to worry about them running out of copies of the ebook)

Ah, now I see: apparently I pre-ordered the Harper edition which supposedly comes out November 25th. I did order it from US Amazon, since my Kindle is registered there.

I think if you pre-order (on Amazon at least) you get the cheapest price by the time of release. I guess the price fluctuates to increase pre-sales?

No, for ebook shorts like that at least it doesn't really fluctuate much.

I hope that this is released as a book in the future. An omnibus with the Odd Interludes would be nice. I have no intention of reading these short pieces whilst I still have full novels to get my teeth into. But ultimately want to read and re-read everything he writes.

Well the Odd Interlude stuff was released already as a print book, but what they might do is add it on to the mass market paperback release of Saint Odd kind of what they did with a couple of the other shorts that were released in connection with some of his other books.
