Demons of Antares updated

I have updated Demons of Antares by Alan Burt Akers with a few corrections based on reader feedback and for consistency with the following books in the series. Please return to the bookstore where you bought the book to re-download it and you will automatically get the newest version. Any problems, let me know.

The changes are:

  • Changed Llanili’s flier from “Gleaming Thunder” (which seemed the correct translation at the time) to “Sparking Thunder” (as it is mentioned in Scourge of Antares)
  • Changed “Nath the Singer” to “Nath the Chanter”
  • Changed “Erwin the Chatterbox” to “Erwin the Waggler” (I defy anyone to have got “Waggler” from the German “Plappermaul”!)
  • Clarified the Tiri paragraph in Chapter 1
  • Improved capitalization around the lady Quensella/Lady Quensella
  • Minor textual changes and corrections

Please keep the comments coming — Demons of Antares is still a work in progress

    I’m not seeing any updates available on Amazon?

      I apologize. Something went wrong. I have corrected the problem and the latest version should now be available.

        Still not seeing any update on Amazon…?

          The update will happen silently on Kindle if you opt-in to “Automatic Book Update” in your Kindle settings (Manage Your Kindle > Settings > Automatic Book Update). If you don’t want to opt-in, you will need to re-download the book. To check if you have the latest version, do a search for “Erwin the Waggler” — if you find it you have the new version. Let me know if you still don’t have the newest version, and I will investigate further.

    In my settings, my “Automatic Book Update” choice was already set to “On”.

    I deleted the book off my Kindle and delivered a new copy. Looked for “waggler” and found nothing. I also tried the Kindle Cloud Reader, which should use the most recent copy available. Nothing.

    When I go to the product page for the book on Amazon:


    …it says the publication date is June 3rd. Wouldn’t that be different after an update?

      I have contacted Amazon and will let you know when I get a reply. The publication date won’t change with an update — the publication date never changes. Please contact me directly at mail@mushroom-ebooks.com .

        Amazon delivered the updates when I turned on my PaperWhite tonight. When I went to the Cloud Reader, I got a message that said the new version was being downloaded.

          Thanks for letting me know.
