Something old, something new…
For a while, now, I’ve been meaning to mention that two of my stories are currently available online. One is a reprint and the other is an original set in the Milkweed universe.
Additionally, I’ve just discovered a second case of real-world circumstances reflecting something that I thought I had conjured from my imagination.
Well, gosh. It feels strange and a little bittersweet to say it, but I guess it’s true: with yesterday’s release of Necessary Evil, the Milkweed Triptych is officially finished.
Necessary Evil is now available in hardcover (US), softcover (UK), ebook (US/UK), and audiobook editions.
I’m feeling slightly bemused as I stare at the completed trilogy now sitting on my bookshelf. And feeling more than a little grateful for all the kind words, encouragement, and lovely feedback from readers and colleagues as this new book makes its way into the world.
It’s been a long time coming, but now it’s almost here: the third and final book of the Milkweed Triptych. The concluding volume, Necessary Evil, will hit shelves on Tuesday, April 30 in the US (via Tor) and the UK/Commonwealth (via Orbit). That’s just over three weeks from today!
And to celebrate the publication of Necessary Evil, many very hard working people have put together a brief West Coast signing tour. My first signing tour—I’m amazed, delighted, and more than a little nervous. I’ll also be doing a couple of singings in New Mexico after returning from the Pacific Coast.
I’ve posted the full schedule of my upcoming signings below the cut. (All of the stops are now included in the appearances on my homepage, too.) Feel free to stop by if you’re in the area, or just passing through. I’d love to see some friendly faces! And, if you feel so inclined, please spread the word.
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.
A while back (almost a year ago!) I posted about my first post-Milkweed novel, Something More Than Night. I’m very excited about this book. Thanks to my excellent editor, it’s looking fairly polished now and is starting to make its way through the production process.
Which means, among other things, that it now has cover art! Which has been unveiled in a cool post on Tor.com.
