Well, it's been a fun few weeks what with flooding once again threatening our home and me rapidly approaching thirty (this Thursday is the big day if you must know), but there is at least some great stuff happening at Abaddon.
The big bit of news is that Jonathan Green has agreed to write more Pax Britannia novels for us, he's going to be signing a new two-book deal for 2008. Jonathan promises to present us with yet more adventures for everybody's favourite hero-dandy Ulysses Quicksilver.
He will also be providing an exclusive short story as a bonus to be included in Pax Britannia: Leviathan Rising, coming in March.
The big release for next month is, of course, Twilight of Kerberos: Shadowmage by Matthew Sprange, launching Abaddon's brand-new line of sword and sorcery novels.
As always, check out our website www.abaddonbook.com for more details.
'But what does an Abaddon editor read when he's not slaving over a manuscript?' you say.
Well, this week I have mostly been reading The Joke is Over: Memories of Hunter S. Thompson by Ralph Steadman, which is superb and makes me nostalgic for an era I never really knew. A mix of American history seen through the bottom of a glass darkly, tales of men who should really have known better and brilliantly savage illustration.
I was also chuffed to bits to find new editions of some Cornell Woolrich books when I went to London the other week.
So, that's what is my bag this week daddy-ohs.
Stay tuned for more tales from the dark side next time.
