It is now official: GRR Martin has announced the release on October 10, 2017 of a new anthology entitled The Book of Swords featuring a short story “The Smoke of Gold is Glory” by Scott Lynch, along with contributions by many other writers including GRR Martin himself and Elizabeth Bear.
THORN needs an ending written (the ending is outlined in depth, just not yet written) and some targeted rewrites in three or four specific areas, based on vexing but extremely astute criticism from my agent, my genius wife, and a trusted friend. This is my primary job for December.
I’ll let you check out the other posts concerning various actions.
The fantasy authors said yes over the weekend! Congratulations (Bynch :-)!
Well, the title says it all. Go and watch the Google Hangout that took place earlier today at Gollancz Festival with Elizabeth Bear and Scott Lynch!
Unfortunately technical difficulties cut it short.

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