    I was all hyper when I’ve read the news on Twitter, and loved the article on Gollancz.

    Now I’ve realised I have to wait almost aN ENTIRE FUDGING YEAR to read this!

    Dog dang it. Sad me is sad indeed.

  2. Laura says:

    BRILLIANT! Super excited despite the long wait. It’ll be worth it!

    Side note, I’ve @ed you on Twitter as I can’t DM you (I think because we’re not mutual followers?)

  3. Kalen Karlsson says:

    Welp. Rip Pandamonium V.2. I’ve given up on it.

  6. Sean says:

    Will this be published in the U.S.?

  7. Kate says:

    What is this book about? It looks awesome!! I want to read it once I’ve finished all Wooding’s other masterpieces.

  8. Ysabel Mystic of Fairyland says:

    *pokes the fandom*

    hey, guys, we still alive?

  9. Yaro the great, destroyer of worlds (and lover of books) says:

    I think so, I don’t know though. Maybe Chris’s lack of posting is starting to rub off on us?

  10. Ysabel Mystic of Fairyland says:

    this is bad

  11. Ysabel Mystic of Fairyland says:

    the comment section used to be so exciting

  12. Ysabel Mystic of Fairyland says:

    did 2016/2017 drain us?

  13. Yaro the great, destroyer of worlds (and lover of books) says:

    I think it drained everyone tbh.

  14. Onreii says:

    Excited about The Ember Blade. Looking pretty…uh…lit? As the kids say. Also, I think its a mixture of 2016/2017 and Mr.Wooding. The combination is almost unbearable, but we got this.

  15. Zachary says:

    I’ve actually been working on a lot of my own writing, been a tad inspired lately, which is phenomenal, oot oot! Was just reminiscing over The Braided Path Trilogy because I always used to listen to Coheed when I picked up those books. I was driving to work yesterday and I heard “Mother Superior” come on in the car… instantly had flashbacks. Always gets me nostalgic. Made me want to pop in and check out the blog though. I am very pleased to see a new book announcement, and it’s the day after my twenty-fifth birthday! Happy Belated to me! Happy to see that you’re still creating magic, Chris. Still in the beginner stages of some of the bigger literary spells over here, so keep lighting the way man!

    Sooo… we ever gonna get pandemonium 2?

  17. Richard B says:

    Congratulations! Sounds interesting and I like the cover art.

  18. Steve Hick says:

    Double up on the question of whether it will be published in the US. Will it soon? I know I can order it from the UK but it means some delay and bother. It is not listed in Amazon US at all at this time.

  19. It hasn’t gone out to international publishers yet as we’re still (!) editing, so no US date as yet. It will almost certainly end up coning out later than the UK version though.
