my my, what a day! 🙂 Not only did I find out today that I’ve been -whoops, can’t break the news yet (no no, it’s not huge or anything, and will make absolutely no difference to your lives, but it makes a huge difference to me!), but suffice it to say that I got really good news today- but there has been some incredible news regarding The Gathering Storm and coming from David Anthony Durham! 🙂
First off, The Gathering Storm will be available in October! 🙂 Yep, you heard that right! Check out this post at Dragonmount for the details! And SA-WoT fans, have no fear – I’ll make sure that Penguin SA has this info first email in the morning, and I’ll be damned if we’re not getting the book a minimum of 2 or 3 days after the new publication date! 🙂
Awesome, awesome news!! 🙂 Think we all need to stare in wondrous admiration at that cover again…
Now onto news from David Anthony Durham, author of the incredible Acacia – he was down at Worldcon for a few days, chatting to author-folk, part of panels and such, and then he won this award – AWESOME AWARD – and you know what, David thoroughly deserves it! 🙂 Now, if you’re wondering why David won the award, then get Acacia, Book 1 of The War with the Mein. You’ll know why! 🙂 And then you can join the ever-increasing legion of fans worldwide in anticipation of the sequel to Acacia – The Other Lands!
P.S. I’m back tomorrow with my review of A Darkness Forged in Fire by Chris Evans! And then Thursday, I’m Hitchhiking… towel included! 😉
