Thanks to the great folks at Orbit Books, the second book of the Milkweed Triptych, The Coldest War, is now out in the UK! 

(And to celebrate, 2000 AD is giving away 5 copies of both Bitter Seeds & The Coldest War in their February 6 print issue!)

It's very exciting to see this book finally make its way across the pond.  (And check out that fantastic cover art!  Both editions of this book, UK and US, have been favored with terrific covers.)

I'm very pleased that The Coldest War received such a warm welcome when it hit shelves here in the US this past summer.  I hope this release brings it into the hands of even more readers, and that folks enjoy the continuing (mis?)adventures of Will, Marsh, Klaus, and whatsherface.

This is also exciting because it means the US and UK publication schedules are now synchronized for the final book of the trilogy!  Necessary Evil will be coming out from Tor in the US and Orbit in the UK simultaneously on April 30, 2013.  That's less than 3 months away!

Thank you, Ruth! I appreciate it very much. And I hope the final book proves worthy of your excitement!

I saw the title of this news story and thought of the Coldest War: . Pity that the story this time around is just so mundane.

I think we can agree that crude attempt to beat a drug test wasn't instituted by a precog. Clairvoyants are much more subtle when they cheat...
