Subterranean Press are about to announce that they have purchased the rights to publish limited editions for the first two volumes of The Malazan Book of the Fallen, Gardens of the Moon and Deadhouse Gates.
If the sales are good, they are planning to do the same with the subsequent volumes of the series. More information should be forthcoming on www.subterraneanpress.com.
I will also pass along whatever info I get from Bill, so stay tuned for more!;-)
Here's what Bill had to say:
Thanks to everyone who weighed in to our recent post about a fantasy series we’re going to be publishing. I’ve just been given permission by Tor — who’ve been great to work with on this — to announce that we’ve reached agreement to publish the first two volumes of Steven Erikson’s The Malazan Book of the Fallen. If sales of those two books (500 numbered copies and 52 lettered copies) are up to expectation, look for us to sign on the rest of the series. Steve and we have chosen Michael Komarck to provide 8-10 full color illustrations for each volume, as well as a chapter head motif to be repeated. We’ll have more details soon, but at this point it looks as though the lettered editions will feature a dust jacket different from the numbered, be housed in a custom traycase, and also have an exclusive gatefold pull out illustration.
