  1. Tad Williams announced today that he is returning to Osten Ard after a 21 year absence.
  2. Scott Lynch’s The Republic of Thieves.. SPOILERS

    My apologies. :dunce:
  3. Scott Lynch’s The Republic of Thieves.. SPOILERS

    Considering at least two participants in this thread are complaining about the usage of the word (one of whom has called for a 'fix' in reprints), and another has referred to Lynch's British publishers as 'idiots' for sticking an 'e' in there, yes. From my understanding, Gollancz, Lynch's British publisher, holds first rights to the books and does the major edits. Del Rey purchases those edits from Gollancz. Perhaps Wert can shed some light on this?

    "Storeys" is gramatically correct when referring to floors of a building.
  5. Guy Gavriel Kay

    Kay had a good chuckle when I mentioned that someone had compared him to Tarantino. This is referring to the fact that the American eBook will be released alongside the hardcover in the spring. Pirated copies of the eBook will also appear at this time, easily accessed by UK readers who might buy the book otherwise, but don't want to wait until July. It's different from the aMoL eBook since that was a worldwide release.

    What does this even mean? I hope you mean, "I'm not motivated or moved by the idea of a fantastical setting influenced and shaped by Chinese history and myth." But, even so, it's a shame you're missing out on a wonderful novel.
  7. Not enough China Mieville or Patrick Rothfuss.

    It's Hollywood, Wert. Development hell or bust!
