Coming attractions

Here's what I have in the pipeline for September:

Book Reviews

I'm almost done with Glen Cook's Chronicles of the Black Company (Canada, USA, Europe), an omnibus of the first three Black Company novels, and I'm really enjoying it. As I said a while back, Malazan fans should give this one a shot!

After that, it will probably be David J. Williams' The Mirrored Heavens (Canada, USA, Europe), and Brent Weeks' The Way of Shadows (Canada, USA, Europe), which is supposed to be in the same style as Lynch's The Lies of Locke Lamora. Not far behind will be Jack Vance's Tales of the Dying Earth (Canada, USA, Europe) to terminate my obligation to GRRM. Rejoice football fans, for there will be another NFL Showdown between me and George! Now if only Romo and the Boys don't fuck it up this season. . .
Both Alison Goodman's The Two Pearls of Wisdom (Europe) and Scott Westerfeld's The Risen Empire (Canada, USA, Europe) could be on the horizon as well.


The only interview request I have in the pipeline at the moment is with Gene Wolfe. Don't know if it will become a reality yet.


This month will sort of be the Peter F. Hamilton month on the Hotlist. For starters, I will soon have a signed first edition hardback of The Temporal Void (Canada, USA, Europe) for you to win. In addition, I will have a contest for the new North American edition of The Reality Dysfunction (Canada, USA, Europe). It hasn't been confirmed just yet, but I'm also gunning for a giveaway for the US edition of Misspent Youth (Canada, USA, Europe).

Robin Hobb fans will be glad to discover that I will have 5 copies of the French graphic adaptation of the Farseer, L'Assassin Royal, at the end of the month.

Collectors stay tuned, for in collaboration with Subterranean Press I will have the mother of all giveaways for you guys! Bill made an offer that I couldn't possibly refuse. Speaking of Subpress, I will also have a contest for the limited edition of Jim Butcher's Storm Front (

Possible giveaways include Gene Wolfe's An Evil Guest (Canada, USA, Europe) and Scott Westerfeld's The Killing of Worlds (Canada, USA, Europe), as well as a few others. More on them if they are within the realm of possibilities.

Finally, since Voyager's website is down, I've agreed to post a short Q&A with Stephen Hunt on the Hotlist, which will coincide with a giveaway for both The Court of the Air and The Kingdom Beyond the Waves.

As always, things might change. But that's the way love goes!;-)

Woauw, so much in store!
I shall wait to see if the interview with Mr. Wolfe come true.
And also about the assassin's graphic novels...

Hey, Pat, remember that Wolfe really subscribes to the Calvin Coolidge style of interviews. He loves giving answers while satisfying the exact question, frustrate the questioner.

Take a look at this interview (scroll down):

It was one guy who got access and used the crowd to get questions, and boy, did they give him some idiotic ones.

Pat, if you are enjoying the first 3 books, you really should continue and read the remainder of the books. Also, the Dread Empire series will intrigue you. Glen Cook is very good and really had a huge influence on Steven Erikson.
Hope they sort out the problem with the Malazan Empire site soon.

Hi Patrick, I have a question for you that I'd like to ask you privately but I can't find an email address on your blog. Would you please email me at lisamunleyATcaDOTrrDOTcom ?

Cool stuff. Looks like Hamilton is being given a big push (by two seperate publishers, no less!) in the USA. I'm interested to see what got changed for the US edition of Misspent Youth, which apparently is different to the UK one (and hopefully better).

Lisa: You can drop me a line using the giveaway email address.:-)
