Feist says, ‘I’m delighted to sign this new contract with HarperCollins.

It is that belief and enthusiasm that made it vital for me to continue this relationship and endeavour to build on past success.’

I'm sure Feist will make them a lot of money. Money's cool.

Happy for Feist of course, but to be honest I'm not that impressed with his last couple of books, so we'll see...

Ever since I was introduced to his 'Magician' series, I've enjoyed reading his books, and he's one of the few authors in my collection whose books I always keep for rereading later. Looking forward to this next one.

Right on, Scotty. Magician is tight. It just sucks so much about Kearney.
