    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.
    Yeah I agree, The Chathrand Voyage series was a big surprise to me, I always pimp this series, I need to go with BD again for this for sure.
    Yes I believe that just happened with the Tregellis series too.

    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.

    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...

    In the meantime not sure if it was mentioned but a new Jo Fletcher imprint novel (series debut and author's firrst adult fantasy) Mage's Blood by David Hair seems to be quite interesting and as the official release is Thursday (27) I will check it out and get a copy if I like what i see

    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

    The blurb sounds interesting but until I see a sample, I simply do not know if the book will interest me - for Red Knight I know for sure as the author is (99%) Christian Cameron under a semi pseudonym and I just love his style (he is one of my top 3 "regular ie publishing a book or more a year with rare gaps" non-sff authors of today)

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

    is there a thread/list somewhere with the releases that actually happened any given year?
