Mud and Glass is released!

It's here: my new novel, Mud and Glass! It's a roistering adventure, it's a fond and hilarious satire of academia, it's a stirring manifesto of resistance to a nascent totalitarian regime! You can buy it here, or on Amazon (for non-Aussie people). Here's what people have already said about it:

"Mud and Glass is a glorious comedic romp, scything through the sententiousness of the academic world while showcasing modesty, courage and cleverness as virtues. Storytelling rules aren’t so much ignored as imprisoned, beaten up and twisted into outrageous new shapes. Our hero finds love in the arms of a lecturer in the Dramatic Arts — of course she does — but, more importantly, learns to love herself. And through it all Goodin captures perfectly, and with affection, the absurdity of academic life. I’ve not read comedy this clever since Jasper Fforde." — Russell Kirkpatrick, author of the acclaimed science-fiction trilogies Fire of Heaven and Husk

"High jinks in the groves of academe! — concerning matters of tenure, footnotes and postgrad research, along with a secret underground society of librarians, a mysterious Codex in need of a key and an evil Board of Governors seeking total domination of (first) the university and (then) the universe. Shades of Tom Sharpe! A barrel-load of fun!" — Richard Harland, award-winning author of Worldshaker and The Black Crusade

"Adventure, mystery and the quest for permanent tenure. The pace does not let up in this sharp and funny romp through the underfunded halls of research academia." — Shauna O'Meara, Winner of the Writers of the Future Contest and Aurealis-shortlisted writer and artist

I'm really excited! This book was so much fun to write, and I hope it's fun for you to read as well. (For those in Melbourne and environs, it will be launched by Drs Jack Dann and Janeen Webb on Saturday, April 22 at 6:30 p.m. at the Wheeler Centre, 176 Little Lonsdale Street. You are cordially invited.)
