Thorn of Emberlain pushed back to undetermined release date

In an update published by Scott Lynch’s publisher Gollancz, the author informs his readers, who were eagerly awaiting the publication of The Thorn of Emberlain, tentatively slotted for September 22, 2016, in the UK, that the release date is pushed back to an undetermined date. Lynch explains:

I am incredibly sorry about this, and I want it to be understood that there’s nobody to blame but me. In addition to the expected obstacles, I severely complicated my life this year by moving. The process of seeking a mortgage, securing a house, and moving across half a continent (although it was necessary, and has been mostly joyful) has eaten months of my time and made it very difficult to recover lost ground on several projects. Oh– Elizabeth Bear and I are getting married, too. Another real joy, but it’s eating spare time like you wouldn’t believe.

Scott is still scheduled to appear in September at Fantasycon-by-the-Sea in the UK and in October at IceCon in Iceland.

We’ll get back to you when we hear more.

Meet with Scott Lynch, Joe Abercrombie, and Tom Lloyd in Manchester!

The bookstore Waterstones Deansgate located in Manchester, UK, is advertising an evening discussion with the three authors moderated by fellow author Elizabeth Bear on Monday, September 19, 2016. They are celebrating the 10th-anniversary editions of their first books!
