The Gollancz hardbacks cometh!

The box just arrived, with a delightfully heavy kathump on my front porch. Six days to publication!

Hey all, what happened to the US hardcover? I had a pre order and all of a sudden day of release it was nowhere to be found! Was the HC version cancelled for US?

Alas, it was, Sean. Del Rey's decision. There will be no U.S. hardcover, at least for the foreseeable future. But the trade paper version's decent looking all the same, I think.

I too pre-ordered the hardcover. That's a shame, as I will not buy the paperback. Maybe some of the UK hardcovers will show up on ebay

Problem solved Amazon.co.uk for the win :)

Glad it worked out!

Just wanted to thank you. The River of Shadows was perfect in every possible way. It lingers in your mind long after you have stopped reading.

It will probably be silly to ask when The Night of the Swarm is coming? Im guessing ive got a horribly long wait ahead of me :-)

Thanks again!

Grieg: thanks for your awesome note; it made for a great start to this rainy Wednesday! As for Book IV, I turn in the draft on September 1st, but it will be early 2012 before it's on the shelves, I fear. Wish it could be otherwise, but I can assure you I'm as eager as anyone to see the series completed (and yes, Book IV is the end!).

All Best Wishes--RVSR

I like the UK covers better anyway :)
