My Malazan fix!

Though it's a wonderful read, Naomi Novik's Victory of Eagles (Canada, USA, Europe) has been relegated to my "work" book.

Indeed, now that the mailman has finally brought my ARC of Ian Cameron Esslemont's Return of the Crimson Guard (Canada, USA, Europe, and PS Publishing), my reading time at home is taken up by this latest Malazan offering. And with my set of page proofs of Steven Erikson's Toll the Hounds (Canada, USA, Europe) on its way, I'm salivating at the thought of reading these two novels back to back! What can I say!?! I need my Malazan fix!!!:p

As for Return of the Crimson Guard, I'm about 150 pages into the book and this one is as complex and convoluted as any of Erikson's Malazan installment.

We likes it. We likes it a lot!

Enjoy. I'm looking forward to my box of goodies that I'm getting next week (including Wolfe's upcoming book) as part of my reviewing arrangement, so I understand the Squee! factor going on here. Enjoy, while I'll get to read it in a few months :D

I'm not even going to try lying about this, I'm really jealous over here! Hope you enjoy them, glad to hear 'Victory of Eagles' is a good read too :o)

The cover of Crimson Guard says Vol 1. Is it split into 2 vols? or is this going to be a series or what?

Anon,

The PS Publishing limited-edition of the book is divided into two volumes; the regular Transworld one will be a single volume. But there will be a few more stories that Esslemont will be writing in and around what is transpiring in the main Malazan series.

Well it'll be a while before I get any reading copies of those two, so I'm quite jealous as well, but thankfully I have a lot of stuff to keep me busy until then :)
