I’ve just received some bits of news; I know some of us have been a little worried about the lack of updates, but all’s well in the world of Chung Kuo:
- In June, we’ll see a paperback version of Daylight on Iron Mountain (in the UK).
- In August, we’ll have The Middle Kingdom (Book 3) in special hardback, trade paperback, and e-book editions.
- Ice and Fire (Book 4) will release before the end of the year.
- Thereafter, three books a year will be released for the next five and a half years.
- Nic Cheetham, publishing director at Corvus/Atlantic and long time Chung Kuo advocate, has completed his anticipated departure from Corvus, and the Chung Kuo program has transitioned into the “more than capable” hands of editor Sara O’Keefe.
- Efforts are still being made toward finding American distribution, possibly with another arm of Atlantic Books. Still no word for and official version of Daylight on the U.S. Kindle, but, in case you don’t know already, a workaround exists.
I also hear that David will resume blogging on the official site within the coming weeks, which is great. I, for one, miss my daily dose of Wingrove. That’s all for now! Zaijian!
