If you’re in or near London, come along on 9th December (6:30pm) to hear me, Sophie Mackintosh (author of The Water Cure), and Season Butler (author of Cygnet). I’m looking forward to chatting with these two terrific writers, and discussing the coals-to-Newcastle challenge of writing dystopian literature in our current political and environmental hellscape. You can book tickets here.
(update: this event is now sold out, but there is a waiting list).
Not long now until the release of the final book in the Fire Sermon trilogy, The Forever Ship, which is coming out (in hardback) on June 29th (in the UK – December 5th in the US). The book has an ominously evocative cover (courtesy of designer Charlotte Abrams-Simpson), and I’m so excited that readers can finally discover the end of Cass and Zach’s story. To read the blurb, or pre-order, you can go here.
The fabulous London bookshop, Goldsboro Books, are once again doing a special, numbered, limited edition. There are only 250 copies, so grab yours quickly here.
London folk: I’ll be doing a reading and Q&A at SRFC (Super Relaxed Fantasy Club) on Tues 30th May. It’s always a fantastic event: relaxed, friendly and chatty – so do come along, have a drink, and say hi. Full details here (NB: advance booking required).
The launch of The Forever Ship will be on June 29th. Venue (London) and details to be confirmed shortly.
To those who have asked about release dates for other translations, unfortunately I have no control over these, but they are always a considerable time after the English-language publication, as it takes time to translate a novel (and I’m in awe of my talented translators around the world who do this so skilfully). My publishers in individual countries are a better source of this information than I am, I’m afraid.
Big thanks to all who came along to The Map of Bones launch at Forbidden Planet, which was a great evening. There are two upcoming events that you’re warmly welcome to come along to – though (confusingly) they’re both on the same night, Tues 26th April.
