Hello, and welcome to the Pyr blog, a new feature which will allow us to provide speedier news on the various science fiction and fantasy books that comprise the growing Pyr line. Here, we will post information on upcoming books, debut artwork, post author signings and convention appearances, call attention to reviews & articles, as well as post information about the Pyr website itself.
So, to get us started...

Meanwhile, noted anthologist Jonathan Strahan has written about the entire quartet on his blog, Notes from Coode Street, and also published first chapters online to all four novels.
