Next summer will see the release of debut author Jon Sprunk's new fantasy, Shadow's Son, the first in a trilogy that continues with Shadow's Lure and Shadow's Master. I'm getting close to being able to debut the awesome cover from Michael Komarck (our first time working with him and all I can say is, "Wow".) Meanwhile, Shadow's Son is still a year out and already making a splash. Jon has already sold French rights to the entire trilogy to Bragelonne, and right on its heels, UK rights to Gollancz. Obviously, this suggests good things ahead for this author. Here's just a quick tease about the novel:
In the holy city of Othir , treachery and corruption lurk at the end of every street, just the place for a freelance assassin with no loyalties and few scruples.
Oh, and Jon will be attending the forthcoming World Fantasy Convention in San Jose, and he won't know anyone, so seek him out if you are going to be there. I'm sure if you tell him "Lou promised you would buy me a beer," he'd be happy to.
