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 progress report is a couple of days late, this time around, probably because I could hardly believe that May has come around so quickly. Honestly not a huge amount to report. UK cover of The Wisdom of Crowds was revealed, and the US cover is pretty much finished and should be revealed soon. I’ve […]
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 […]
In some ways a strange, slow period at the start of the year. As lockdown drags on into infinity, and with the kids at home all the time, I must admit it’s sometimes difficult to make headway. So it’s nice that The Age of Madness is very close to finished. The final instalment, The Wisdom of […]
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 […]
So the Trouble With Peace is out. You think something’s so far off it’ll never happen, then before you know it, it’s fading rapidly into the past. Went well, overall, I think, given that Covid has rather messed up the normal operation of the book trade. We managed to do take some events online, which […]
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 […]
