Release date and cover for CK Book 11: Upon a Wheel of Fire

Today, David Wingrove announced the release date of the Fragile Books release of Chung Kuo Book 11: Upon a Wheel of Fire: July 11, 2019, less than three months away. He also shared the cover of the volume which continues with the Jim Burns-created dragon ouroboros motif, this time in fiery orange (makes sense).

Good timing for me, personally, on this, as I’ve just finished the delayed Kindle version of Book 10: The Stone Within. Here’s to hoping there are no snags with the Kindle version of Book 11!

  1. looks like it will really take until 2023 (?) until all books are released. Well, then I will finish it on the original books, and then read each in peace when the revised version is there.

    Luxury problems, I guess šŸ˜‰

    1. Surely you mean 2028? If we’re looking at one release per year?

      Something tells me 2023 is hugely optimistic as far as getting the entire series goes.

      1. i refuse to even contemplate that. I think he mentioned a schedule once on his page, something akin to 2023 or 24. But yes, with that horrible speed…

        Most annoying is, I do not know what changed in the revised books so far, aside the prequels and the new ending. No idea if the rest (old book 1-5) are still the same now. Waiting for the July one, then I will finish with the old books. Just read #9 and #10 a few weeks ago, 10 is the first new one for me (I ended once with the discontinued german series, than again with corvus that stopped even earlier. So finally new material after so much waiting and holding out).

        I am however really curious why it takes so long?

  2. It’s a shame we don’t hear much from David Wingrove these days. I think we’d all love a few more updates now and then. I appreciate that he’s probably a very busy man, but even the odd snippet of news would go a long to alleviating some of the fears of his fanbase, I mean it doesn’t have to be anything major.

    These long bouts of radio silence don’t do much for anybody IMO.

    1. Agreed. I really enjoyed the days when he would send along semi-frequent guest posts with news and updates. I haven’t heard from directly him since January 2017, but I respect that he probably has a lot on his plate. I post news as I hear about it, which is just through his Facebook now.

      1. i write him messages via facebook from time to time to ask about the new book (which hopefully already shipped).

        I worry there is some more serious reason that it all takes so long. Re-releasing, updating the website or FB… šŸ™

  3. Where is Chung Kuo 11?
    I am in the Eastern United States and Amazon Prime doesn’t show the new edition. How long must we wait for paperback and kindle?

    1. i got mine delivered, but I ordered from David direcly. Will soon start reading, and then (for the first time!) finish off the series with the old boos (which I got used online).

    1. finish it with the originals (that is what i am doing now). whenever a re-release comes, I’ll read that again…
