  1. Does anyone know if this will be available on Would love to get a copy but the postage is the same if not more than the book for here in the UK.

  2. Mc23, we will definitely be making it available to the UK via Amazon. It's also not too late to place a preorder so you can get a copy straight from the printer to your door.

  3. Thank you for the info. Will wait and order from as hopefully the postage will be cheaper.

  4. speaking of Glen Cook & the Black Company, there have been rumors of 2 final BC books being published-"Port of Shadows" & "A Pitiless Rain"-for many years now. anyone know if they will ever see the light of day? i certainly hope they will as the BC books are excellent imo.

  5. I like how you spelled Glen Cook's name wrong in your post. Nice.
