I wanted to let you know what was happening with a couple of forthcoming releases. Firstly, I’m working with Gollancz on the AUTUMN: AFTERMATH limited edition hardcover which will be published by Infected Books. Gollancz have been kind enough to allow me access to their designs in order that the new edition of the book can match the previous UK AUTUMN hardcover releases. There are a couple of legal and technical issues to get resolved before we go into production but I’m hoping (and don’t hold me to this) that the book will be released in late April/early May this year. You can register interest and keep up to date with developments by joining this mailing list. In the meantime, if you don’t want to wait, you can pick up the UK trade paperback edition here.
I thought this would be a good time to tell you about my plans for the new release of AUTUMN: THE HUMAN CONDITION, which I hope will also happen around the same time as AFTERMATH.
THE HUMAN CONDITION will be available as an eBook, trade paperback and limited edition hardcover, and it’ll differ significantly from the original Infected Books release from 2005. As well as new artwork from Craig Paton (you can see one of his initial draft cover designs here), it’ll also be a much longer book (of course, most of the content remains available free over at www.lastoftheliving.net). BREAKING POINT and KIERAN COPE will make their first appearances in print alongside BEGINNING TO DISINTEGRATE – a brand new short telling the backstory of the survivors based at the flats in AUTUMN: DISINTEGRATION. There will be one other major addition to the collection – a short which plays a hugely important part in the overall series – which I hope to tell you about shortly.
Again, if you want to keep up with news of these releases and register your interest in one/both of the limited editions with no obligations, please join this mailing list.
More news very soon. Have a great weekend!
