It's News To Me #17

I'm still looking to get sleep whenever I can. Even though I do menial tasks at work, I'm suddenly finding it very hard to focus. Does 2 come after or before 1?

I guess, contrary to popular opinion, sleep is important.

Cover Art

I saw this on Goodreads and it looks like things are working out for Michael J. Sullivan's 5th book (out of 6) in the Riyria Revelations, Wintertide, to be out in October this year. Awesome cover. Reminds me of the US edition of Nights of Villjamur.
It is scheduled for release in October, and just as recent as two weeks ago I wondered if it would make it.

I saw this on A Fantasy Reader and yes, it will be called The Cold Commands instead of The Dark Commands until we're told otherwise? This is the UK cover art btw, and Me Likey (signed Kanye West).

I'm probably not the only one who can't get enough of Joe Abercrombie especially when he's teamed up with the people at Subterranean Press. That's quite the combo and here's what they've got:

I like this cover, but I think I actually like the original ones the best. Those are what put me over the top on buying the series.


As you well know, I'm a huge Malazan fan and Steven Erikson has some great news (Woot!):
GASP! That would be me, coming up for air. How long was I down there? About twenty years, from conception to completion. The Malazan Book of the Fallen is done. Sure, editing and all that crap to follow. But ... done. I don't know who I am. Who am I again? What planet is this? Three months of butterflies ... maybe this double whiskey will fix that. Hmm. No. Delayed reaction going on here.

Stephen Deas not only has this amazing cover art for the US edition of The King of the Crags, but he's also just signed a 4 book deal with Gollancz. More info about the books here.

You may also know that I'm a bit of a Peter V. Brett fan (review) and I'm actually quite enjoying The Desert Spear at the moment. From A Dribble of Ink and other sources, Brett's sold another novella to Subterranean Press called Brayan's Gold. I didn't get my hands on The Great Bazaar (and don't quite have the hundred+ dollars to buy a used copy) so I'll have to actually be on the ball this time around.


Hollywood Spy is a great new (as in "new to me") site I found, or should I say that found our blog. Run by Dezmond, who's a frequent commenter around these parts, it seems to focus on science fiction, fantasy, and other movies that attract such fans. I'll at least stick with that until he corrects me. :)

Great stuff, seriously, check it out.

Lastly, doesn't this just look cool:

And that's the news...at least to me.

I am looking forward to Michael Sullivan's next book too. :) It is great looking. And winter, brrr. :) Hope you get some sleep.

@Melissa - For sure. I really need to catch up on the series already.

Dylan's been letting us sleep for three hours at a time sometimes. Other times only 1 to 2. :)

Wow! I love The Blade Itself's cover.
