    Glen Cooks The Black Company series

    I went ahead and bought the ebook, and it looks like "Shaggy Dog Bridge" and "Bone Eaters" are not in Port of Shadows (unless they have been renamed). "Tides Elba", "Bone Candy", and "Smelling Danger" are all chapter titles.

    Glen Cooks The Black Company series

    So question - I remember reading a long time ago that Port of Shadows is simply the collected version of all of the Black Company short stories that have been published over the years (like "Shaggy Dog Bridge" from the Fearsome Journeys anthology a few years back, etc). Is this accurate?

    Upcoming Cover Art VII

    At least it's not a guy in a hooded robe with a knife.

    K.J. Parker (a.k.a.Tom Holt) - Part II

    The Two of Swords Part 16 is still scheduled for release in mid-October - we will see if that gets pushed back again.

    Odd - I even received the Orbit "new this month" e-newsletter this morning that claimed Part 16 was available to purchase.

    I would think designing new fancy covers for each one would indicate a likely release - you can see all of them up through Part 22. I really dig the cover design.

    Odd - there are installments 17 through 23 solicited on Amazon, with covers and everything.

    K.J. Parker (a.k.a.Tom Holt) - Part II

    So I went to purchase Part Sixteen of the Two of Swords, which was supposed to come out today, and I noticed it's been delayed until October. Any information on what's going on?
  9. I have seen unsubstantiated musings on Warhammer 40k forums that there is still ongoing negotiation with Sherrilyn Kenyon on use of the Dark Hunters title, but that seems to be purely speculation. Supposedly all of the physical copies of Umbra Sumus were pulped, but a few pop up here and there online once in a while. A very rare collector's item right now!
  10. If ever there has been an author whose work has been mistreated by publishers, it's Kearney. The ongoing absurdity with the Sea Beggars being completed is ridiculous. How long do the rights reside with Bantam? It's been well over a decade since the first book was published. The Dark Hunters: Umbra Sumus debacle with Black Library/Games Workshop is absurd as well. The eBook version of Umbra Sumus was "leaked" onto the net a while back, and from all accounts it is very, very good (for Warhammer 40,000 tie in fiction). It's very frustrating, because he is a great author and deserves more recognition.
