Our May book of the month is NOS4R2. This book is terrifying. Don’t believe us. . . let Gillian Redfearn tell you a little more about it.
Some books are too scary to read even with the lights on. Some are too scary to read even when you’re surrounded by people in the middle of the day.
This book gave me nightmares.
This book still makes me shiver when I see a Rolls Royce.
This book will under your skin, into your mind, and once it’s there it will never leave.
Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
And whatever you do, don’t get in the car . . .
We did warn you. It’s a very good thing that the days are getting longer, because you’ll need all the daylight you can get to read this book. Next week we’ll be bringing you a very special extract read by Joe Hill himself.
See you then!
Gollancz is thrilled to be able to reveal the cover for one of the most exciting debuts of 2013!
We love this artwork from the exceptional Larry Rostant, and this cover was put together for us by the talented Nick May!
The Path of Anger is one of the most hotly anticipated fantasy debuts this year – not only for us, either! This book is going to be a real international event, with simultaneous publication planned with Bragelonne in France , Heyne in Germany, Planeta in Spain and Mynx in Holland.

An Empire has been overthrown. An Emperor has been murdered. A Republic has risen from the ashes . . . but the old grudges still remain.
Now an assassin has begun to strike, systematically, from the shadows.
There will be blood.
There will be death.
This is the path of anger . . .
We can’t wait to share this novel with you. We know that November is a long way off, but we’ll be sharing more extracts, teasers and competitions to win early copies as we countdown!
Let us know what you think of the cover in the comments.
