Extract from Steven Erikson's THE FIENDS OF NIGHTMARIA

The folks at torforgeblog.com just posted an extract from The Fiends of Nightmaria, an upcoming novella from Steven Erikson.

Here's the blurb:

The king is dead, long live King Bauchelain the First, crowned by the Grand Bishop Korbal Broach. Both are, of course, ably assisted in the running of the Kingdom of Farrog by their slowly unravelling servant, Emancipor Reese. However, tensions are mounting between Farrog and the neighboring country of Nightmaria, the mysterious home of the Fiends. Their ambassador, Ophal D Neeth Flatroq, seeks an audience with King Bauchelain, who has thus far rebuffed his overtures. But the necromancer has some other things on his plate.

To quell potential rebellion nearly all the artists, poets, and bards in the city have been put to death. A few survivors languish in the dungeons, bemoaning their fates. Well, just moaning in general really…and maybe plotting escape and revenge.

Follow this link to read the extract. =)

I am not sure what has happened here, but was this not released like 4 years ago?

The link you posted was for a limited edition released by PS Publishing.

This version is the first wide release in North America.

Thanks for the answer. I was just mildly confused and was wondering whether I had missed something. I did. :-)

I love the Bauchelain and Korbal stories. The three previous novellas are among my favorites. Erickson comes up with some great names for his characters.
