Well that's eleven days early. I do wonder if Amazon think themselves a law unto themselves. I hope you enjoy it Gaius!

Line War is the fifth novel in his increasingly popular Agent Cormac series. The Polity is under attack from a 'melded' AI entity with control of the lethal Jain technology, yet the invasion seems to have no coherence. Further seemingly indiscriminate slaughter ensue and Ian Cormac is sent to investigate but he's struggling to control a new ability no human should possess. What's happening could bring about the end of the Polity itself.

I finished Line War and it's an excellent, excellent ending to the Cormac saga and the best novel in the series.
I posted my impressions in the Reading in April forum here:

Thanks for that, suciul. Thus far no one has accused me of the usual big SF series cop-out of a dues ex machina, or wiffling down into anti-climax.

If like me you've been wondering where your pre-order copy of "Shadow of the Scorpion" has got to? Well it looks they are all for sale on amazon.com, not .co.uk.
$10.17 plus postage which translates to exactly £9.50 with delivery. A better price than the £120+ price on amazon.co.uk marketplace. Up to 5 week delivery but may be your only chance to get a reasonably priced copy.
I found out from reading Instapundit.com, the blogfather himself. Some very wise bod sent him a copy!

ah didn't know about the HC - thanks. still april is a loong way off, hopefully neal'll do another signing then did know about the gabble, but wasn't sure if it was a re-release of short-stories or not?
September 22nd, 2008, 04:59 AM
It is a collection of short stories, I think all of them have been available somewhere else before. I'm pretty sure neal put a post up on his blog about it a while back, but can't seem to find it at the moment.

Anybody know anything about "Orbus"? saw it mentioned very briefly on his blog a while back but no actual details.

From memory it continues the Spatterjay series (The Skinner, Voyage of the Sabel Keech) but not set on Spatterjay. I think it's a direct sequel to VSK with the Prador infected by the virus playing a big part, although I may be very mistaken. I'm looking forward to it very much indeed - I think it's probably due for release this time next year (we've got The Gabble next month and then Shadow of the Scorpion in April).

Should be able to ask Neal himself soon. He's just posted on his blog. First time since April.
