Good Omens: What We’ll Be Listening to this Christmas!

One of our favourite books (from two of our favourite authors) is GOOD OMENS, by Terry Gaiman and Neil Pratchett (or something like that), originally published by Gollancz in 1990. We recently republished it as a gorgeous small hardback, to tie in with our Terry Pratchett collection, and we have exciting news coming in the New Year for those who would prefer to have a copy which sits neatly on the shelves with their Neil Gaiman books. If you have read the book, you’ll know why we love it – and if you haven’t, you totally should give it a go. But…

Announcing the publication date of Mistborn: Shadows of Self!

We’re so excited! You wait not very long at all for a new Brandon Sanderson release date and then two turn up at once! We launched Brandon in the UK with the Mistborn trilogy (The Final Empire, The Well of Ascension and Hero of Ages) so it’s always been a series that’s very close to our hearts. Following on from that trilogy, Brandon then did that rare thing and moved the action in his world into a new epoch, with new technology, when he wrote Mistborn: The Alloy Of Law which was set in an age where technology had moved…

Cover Reveal: The Boy Who Wept Blood

The Boy Who Wept Blood is a new standalone adventure from Den Patrick. Set in his marvellously drawn world of Landfall (a world where characters and author alike have secrets) these are tight, fast moving fantasies driven by all-too-flawed and very real characters. There’s much to appeal to fantasy and historical readers alike with intrigue, deceit and a fair bit of swash-buckling to power the plot along. We wanted to reflect that in the covers. We also wanted to depict the characters but without setting their image in the minds of the reader (we’d rather their imagination painted them) so…

A few thoughts on where heroes come from

Nathan Hawke burst onto the fantasy scene in 2013 with the publication of his first trilogy – three fast-paced, hard-hitting novels about Gallow, an honest man trying to do good in a world where no-one trusts or likes him. Heavy on the Viking influence, but with a pleasing spark of magic. The books got great reviews from fantasy authors such as James Barclay and Tom Lloyd, but also from historical fiction legends Conn Iggulden and Giles Kristian. Today, Gollancz is proud to publish an omnibus of the amazing trilogy, with lots of new material and short stories interspersed between the…
