The Red Sphinx: A Sequel to The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, Lawrence Ellsworth (Translated by)

Quote

On Sale Date: January 3, 2017

For the first time in English in over a century, a new translation of the forgotten sequel to Dumas’s The Three Musketeers, continuing the dramatic tale of Cardinal Richelieu and his implacable enemies.

In 1844, Alexandre Dumas published The Three Musketeers, a novel so famous and still so popular today that it scarcely needs introduction. Shortly thereafter he wrote a sequel, Twenty Years After, that resumed the adventures of his swashbuckling heroes.

Later, toward the end of his career, Dumas wrote The Red Sphinx, another direct sequel to The Three Musketeers that begins, not twenty years later, but a mere twenty days afterward. The Red Sphinx picks up right where the The Three Musketeers left off, continuing the stories of Cardinal Richelieu, Queen Anne, and King Louis XIII—and introducing a charming new hero, the Comte de Moret, a real historical figure from the period. A young cavalier newly arrived in Paris, Moret is an illegitimate son of the former king, and thus half-brother to King Louis. The French Court seethes with intrigue as king, queen, and cardinal all vie for power, and young Moret soon finds himself up to his handsome neck in conspiracy, danger—and passionate romance!

Dumas wrote seventy-five chapters of The Red Sphinx, all for serial publication, but he never quite finished it, and so the novel languished for almost a century before its first book publication in France in 1946. While Dumas never completed the book, he had earlier written a separate novella, The Dove, that recounted the final adventures of Moret and Cardinal Richelieu.

Now for the first time, in one cohesive narrative, The Red Sphinx and The Dove make a complete and satisfying storyline—a rip-roaring novel of historical adventure, heretofore unknown to English-language readers, by the great Alexandre Dumas, king of the swashbucklers.

 

 

HarperVoyager pre-empts debut trilogy Godblind by Anna Stephens
 

Quote

 

HarperVoyager has pre-empted rights to Godblind, a debut trilogy featuring strong female characters and black comedy in an intricate world.The book will be published in spring 2017.

Natasha Bardon, deputy publishing director at HarperVoyager, pre-empted UK and Commonwealth rights excluding Canada for the Godblind trilogy by debut author Anna Stephens in a six-figure deal with Harry Illingworth at D H H Literary Agency.

Godblind is the first in a grimdark series reminiscent of Scott Lynch, Joe Abercrombie and Mark Lawrence, according to HarperVoyager.

The publisher said the book is “set in a vast and intricate world, filled with strong female characters, black comedy and themes including religious fanaticism and political machinations.”

German and French rights have also been pre-empted.

 

 

 

'Epic' story from Paul Auster: 4 3 2 1
 

Quote

 

Faber & Faber is set to publish Paul Auster's first novel in seven years, an “epic" story of birthright and possibility titled 4 3 2 1.

4 3 2 1 tells the story of Archibald Isaac Ferguson, the one and only child of Rose and Stanley Ferguson, who is born on 3rd March 1947. From that single beginning, Ferguson's life will take four simultaneous and independent fictional paths. Four Fergusons made of the same genetic material, four boys who are the same boy, will go on to lead four parallel and entirely different lives. Family fortunes diverge. Loves and friendships and intellectual passions contrast. Chapter by chapter, the rotating narratives evolve into an elaborate dance of inner worlds enfolded within the outer forces of history as, one by one, the intimate plots of the four Fergusons' stories rush on across the tumultuous and fractured terrain of mid twentieth-century America. A boy grows up-again and again and again.

The novel will be published in February 2017 in the UK and January in the US.

And here i thought your first post in this thread would be asking about the exclusion of Karen Miller's next book (I have Prince of Glass listed in my last month's issue of Locus as being April 2017 for what it is worth).

 

What is the Tremontaine listed?  Is it the collection by serial box?  Because I thought that was already out.  Not just as installments but as a collection.

 

Steph Swainston has a book listed for Sept of 2017.

The third book in Alex Marshall's Crimson Empire series, War in Crimson Embers has a release of April 2017.

Brian Catling has a sequel to The Vorrh entitled The Erstwhile set for May release.

I'm hoping to hear word on Moorcock's The Woods of Arcady this year.  Last I heard he was well into it, but his forums went down nearly a year ago so who knows.

I'd like to know what in the hell happened to JV Jones, but as I've asked before and not that long ago, apparently no one knows. :(

The next Bakker is scheduled for summer next year, as far as I know.

Ugh.  This is getting frustrating.  I pre-ordered it in May from the Book Depository, and it was listed as September of this year.  Now they have it listed at September of next year, so hopefully that "early 2017" is more accurate than that.  It doesn't make any sense that the US version would come out in January, before the UK version.
