The Monarchies of God print ad


Thanks to Adam for posting this:

To help promote the reissued omnibus edition of Paul Kearney's The Monarchies of God, the folks at Solaris have created this ad which should appear in various British SFF publications.

Both Hawkwood and the Kings (Canada, USA, Europe, AbeBooks) and Century of the Soldier (Canada, USA, Europe, AbeBooks) are now available on both sides of the Atlantic.

As a matter of course, I'd love to read and review them, what with these books coming so highly recommended. But there is yet no sign of them in my mailbox. . .

Well, the first of these books was in my mailbox two days ago because I ordered and paid for it.
You could do the same thing... ;-)

I picked up Hawkwood and the Kings this week! Can't wait to read it.

Have you thought, Pat - and I know this might be an odd idea - have you thought of maybe, I don't know, it feels silly now I'm saying it... have you thought of buying them?

Patrick said...

Well, since Paul Kearney himself checked with Solaris and they are supposed to be sending me review copies, buying them would be a waste of money.

But we were also supposed to do a giveaway and maybe post an extract, and I haven't heard back from them...

So perhaps it all went down the crapper...

Considering that Kearney is in a position where he could use every sale, I wouldn't call supporting him with those $20 (less if you buy them online) such a "waste". Also, you can always give the extra copies in a givaway if you end up receiving them.

I picked up the first volume of the Omnibus edition and am about half way through. So far, it's really good, much much better than The Ten Thousand. IMO, if you like GRRM's GoT series, you'll like the Monarchies of God.

I bought the first book of this series on a whim when it first appeared having never heard of Kearney. I was literally blown away. Think Martin or Erikson but add cannons. Yes, cannons. Oh yea and...well I won't give it away. At the time I'd put it right up there with Erikson and Martin as my favorite 'current' fantasy series. Now Kearney's Mark of Ran series - the Sea Beggars series is/will be my favorite all-time fantasy series, hands down when he can finally bring out the omnibus edition with all three novels after the rights to the series expires from Bantam Spectra. They were insane to drop the series.

On well. I'm going outside to my reading lounge with a super-hoppy IPA and read the new Brandon Sanderson book.

Hey Pat,

If you want to do some sort of book exchange, I have all 5 books and could send them off to you.

Is the Omnibus available now in Canada? I checked Amazon but didn't see anything there about it.
I buy most of my books used and I have never seen any of these books anywhere - don't know if that's a good sign or not.

Jens said...

Hey Pat, in this case I would wait as well! Even though, from all that I heard, it'd be worth to be for these omnibuses, anyway!

Thumbs up for giving some exposure to Paul Kearney who's had more than misfortunes than necessary. Great to finally see the non-cut version of "Ship from the West".

BTW, have you ever reviewed any pre-Macht Kearney novels?

I have two of them coming in the mail, Just finished ( Changes ) by Jim Butcher , which was just super and am keeping and eye on the UPS truck coming up the street !

Scatterbrain's eaten a word in my previous comment.

It should have said: "it'd be worth to be paying for these omnibuses"

It may be worth remembering at this point that it was a previous blog post by Pat that led to Solaris picking Paul's work up in the first place, so him getting a review copy of the now-duology is fair enough ;-)
