Coming Attractions

Hi guys!

I just thought I'd drop by and tell you what's coming up. I reckon it's a good way to prevent many people from asking me the same questions all the time!;-)

Book Reviews

Well, I should be done with Steven Erikson's Reaper's Gale (Canada, USA, Europe) by next week, and so far it's excellent! I daresay you can pre-order this one! My current "commute" novel is Carrie Vaughn's third Kitty installment, Kitty Take a Holiday (Canada, USA, Europe). Like its predecessors, it is quite good.

My next "home" book will be Tad Williams' Shadowplay (Canada, USA, Europe). It should have been before Reaper's Gale in the rotation, but my review copy got lost in the mail. So it's coming up next.

Soon-to-be read novels include Joel Shepherd's Breakaway (Canada, USA, Europe), Ian McDonald's Brasyl (Canada, USA, Europe), Katherine Kurtz's Childe Morgan (Canada, USA, Europe), and Sergei Lukyanenko's Night Watch (Canada, USA, Europe). Scott Lynch's Red Seas Under Red Skies (Canada, USA, Europe) will trump any one of these books, provided I get a thrice-damned ARC soon!


You guys have been getting some pretty good ones since the beginning of 2007.

Five are currently in the works, with Katherine Kurtz, Greg Keyes, Peter F. Hamilton, Joe Abercrombie and Patrick Rothfuss.

Coming in April/May are interviews with Steven Erikson, Ian Cameron Esslemont, R. Scott Bakker, Jacqueline Carey and Scott Lynch.

There's always more, so stay tuned!;-)

Book Giveaways

Ah, your favorite section, right!?!

As you know by now, these things change from day to day, so more could be on the way (I have a few things cooking up as we speak!).

If you scroll down, you should see that there are a few ongoing contests: Patrick Rothfuss' The Name of the Wind (Canada, USA, Europe), Steven Erikson's The Lees of Laughter's End, L. E. Modesitt, jr.'s The Elysium Commission (Canada, USA, Europe), Joel Shepherd's Breakaway and Kay Kenyon's Bright of the Sky (Canada, USA, Europe). There's still time to register, that goes without saying!

Coming this weekend will be a giveaway for Steven Erikson's Reaper's Gale. In addition, in keeping with my promise to try to convert as many fantasy fans to the Malazan series as humanly possible, Transworld have accepted to supply a full set of paperbacks to introduce a new reader to this fantastic series. The publisher might supply more than one set, so I'm waiting to hear from them before making the announcement.

I've already mentioned this and it will happen, have no fear: There's going to be a contest for a signed copy of Tad Williams' Rite (Canada, USA, Europe).

There will be a James Barclay contest as well, but I'm waiting to hear from him and Gollancz to finalize the details.

Another Malazan offering will be Ian Cameron Esslemont's Night of Knives (Europe.) I will also have copies of Ian McDonald's Brasyl, probably both the US and UK editions.

A little later, you'll have the chance to win Jacqueline Carey's Kushiel's Justice (Canada, USA), as well as the much anticipated Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch, again probably both the US and UK editions).

There will be more, of course, but these book giveaways have been confirmed. Where else can you win more novels!?!

That's about it for now, people. As always, your suggestions and comments are welcome.

Take care and be good, all of you!

Question for you concerning contests:

When I click or even copy the email link, it automatically shows up in my email brower as the correct addy without the spam thingie, but you know how some email clients will show the "name" of the person instead of the address? Mine will show for yours "no-spam". I can't change this to save my life, so I was just wanting to confirm that my last two contest entries went through, and if not, what can I do about it? (The ones I entered were BREAKAWAY and BRIGHT OF THE SKY).

Keep up the great work, it's greatly appreciated. I can't find the link for the Rothfuss contest - could you post that please?

As long as there will be more Locke Lamora that is all that matters.

Shara: If the email didn't rebound, I assume there's no problem.:-)

Anonymous: Just go back about two weeks and you'll find it. It's no longer in the current posts, so you may have to click on either February or March 2007.

Sarah: There's more Locke Lamora to come, have no fear!;-)

Yay! Looks like you've got a good line up. I've finally gotten some of your recommendations read (Elantris, Lord of Snow and Shadows, Mistborn) and your reviews have been spot on. Keep up the good work.

Unbelievable Pat!
That's a whole lot of contests and interviews you've got coming. Keep up the great work.
Any idea on when the 'Red Seas' ARCs will start to appear?
