The Skybound Sea is indeed the last in Sam Sykes' Aeon's Gate trilogy. He's moving on to a new series but I'm not entirely sure what it'll be - I think it's potentially YA.

Yeah, I'll be doing the same thing Because Redick's series is great and I don't want to have to wait till next year to read the conclusion. It stinks when some writers deliver the sequels to their series in a timely fashion and the publisher pushes back release dates. Didn't this happen with Ian Tregellis too?

Yes I just got my copy of Gary Gibson's Stealing Light from BD, took 11 days, not real bad.

Yes I believe that just happened with the Tregellis series too.

OOOH... thanks Randy: not seen this one, but, as you know, I'm a big fan of Penzler's anthologies. This will be my Halloween read for this year!
[LATER EDIT.... And ordered. Great stuff!]

You're welcome, Mark. I figured even if no one else was interested, you would be.

I agree. Very little buzz on these books even though they are supposed to big, big debuts. Gollancz is quiet about it, I see no arc's or early reviews, it's nothing like when Name of the Wind was launched, to name a comparison. I think they give it as much publicity as they do any other books, like say Elsbeth Cooper's Wild Hunt series.
I guess this is just how they work, they will focus their publicity engine on the more established big guns. I can't recall them making a major splash for Abercrombie's first book either, and that one gained a large readership steadily but surely. Lynch on the other hand came with a lot of pre-pub buzz, but that was US fed as well.
As for TOR UK, well they seem to release so few books now that the one book that I am interested in hardly getting any publicity sofar is no surprise to me.

Must admit they (Red Knight and Malice) are two I am looking forward to a great deal. Was hoping to get a heads up on both, but as yet to no avail. Do know people that have copies of the ARC of Malice, though.
September 25th, 2012, 05:43 PM
I asked Orbit and they promised me a review copy of Red Knight when it's available, so we'll see as I plan to get the Uk version if that is published before; about Malice I will see as sometimes Tor.uk sends me review copies, but if I like what I read in a sample whenever available i will get that one too...

They sent me a copy of MAGE'S BLOOD. Starting it tonight. Nice looking book.

Have not heard of it until today - for FBC Mihir got a copy and I am pretty sure I could have asked for one and got it, but I find it harder and harder to read print books so I prefer to wait for an ebook release if the publisher does not offer earcs with very, very few (I really, really want this) exceptions

For Malice same, have no idea how the book will read so need a sample...
