We’d like to wish a very happy Publication Day to all of our books out in bookshops and online today. This week’s new titles feature a ground breaking new space opera from Alastair Reynolds, action-packed SF eBooks from Elizabeth Bear and fantasy and SF from award-winning author Geoff Ryman. SFF fans, we’ve got a plethora of unmissible books to pick up or download from your local bookshop, library or from your preferred e-tailer.
It’s the final week of Cityread and we thought we’d share another favourite audio selection from a bit further along in the Peter Grant series. Our next clip – is a wonderful little of piece from Broken Homes (the fourth book in the Peter Grant series) where a somewhat perplexed Peter Grant has to deal with a man who accidentally set light to his Grand-daughter’s birthday party…
We would like to remind everyone that the Gollancz list has decided to move to a windowed direct submissions period each year. Please be aware that we are currently not considering, or returning, any direct unsolicited submissions.
We will open direct submissions again, for a limited period of time, later in 2015 and will make an announcement closer to the time.
