And Orbit’s hardcover of The Wisdom of Crowds in the US will look something like this:
As with the other books in the series, art by Sam Weber and design by Lauren Panepinto. The three of us did a little event yesterday to celebrate, talking about the design process and answering some audience questions. You can watch the recording over here. Obviously it’s a continuing development of the theme, with colours harking back to their editions of the First Law. Here’s the whole series together:
A handsome group indeed….
The book’ll be out I believe September 14th in the US, just a couple of days before the UK release, in hardcover, e-book, and audiobook read by the incomparable Steven Pacey.
The UK cover of the final book in The Age of Madness trilogy, The Wisdom of Crowds, is finally ready to be revealed… Design once again by Tomás Almeida, though obviously there’s no way he could have done it without me endlessly arguing over the exact colour of foil we would be using. And the […]
Well, it’s New Year’s Eve, so I guess I must be 46 today, and what a strange and messed up year 2020 has been. I’ve been able to stick to my plans for The Age of Madness but other than that all bets have been off, and with new strains of Covid appearing and tougher lockdowns coming […]
Yes, yes, I know The Trouble With Peace only just came out a few weeks ago, but I’m in the process of finishing off The Wisdom of Crowds, the last book in the trilogy, and part of that has been getting the cover copy straight. Of course the book won’t be out until September 2021 […]
Believe it or not, The Trouble With Peace is out in two short weeks, and the US and UK hardcovers are both in my possession: UK art by Tomas Almeida, US by Sam Weber and Lauren Panepinto, and both beautiful in their own pleasingly distinct and different ways. Promotion ramps up, as you’d imagine. You […]
The Trouble With Peace is out in but 18 days, people. Due to the ravages of Covid, the usual practice of filling a bookshop shoulder to shoulder with people who then queue up to be breathed on by an author has rapidly fallen in popularity. But if the thought of NOT seeing me talk about […]
Time flipping flies and, believe it or not, it’s under a month now until The Trouble With Peace comes out. We’ll be releasing a few extracts from the early chapters leading up the big day, and the first – a little episode from the point of view of that principled man of the North, Jonas […]
And following on from last week’s UK Cover reveal, here’s the US version: With art once again by Sam Weber and design by Lauren Panepinto. A development on the theme, as you can see, and an interesting contrast with the UK approach… The book’s due to be published at the very same time as the […]
Time to reveal the UK cover for the second book in The Age of Madness trilogy, The Trouble With Peace… Design once more by Tomás Almeida. And the cover copy… Savine dan Glokta, once Adua’s most powerful investor, finds her judgement, fortune and reputation in tatters. But she still has all her ambitions, and no […]
Looks like the cover copy (what some would call the blurb) for the forthcoming The Trouble With Peace has made its way out into the world… “Conspiracy. Betrayal. Rebellion. Peace is just another kind of battlefield . . . Savine dan Glokta, once Adua’s most powerful investor, finds her judgement, fortune and reputation in tatters. But […]
