Cast in Chaos is now avail­able for order at (some) on-line book­stores; it’s also made its way into at least one Borders. This prob­ably means it will arrive in the book­stores that will carry it very soon. The release or publi­ca­tion date was 1st August 2010, but that date is the date at which the book should be avail­able in all of the various stores that are going to sell it (i.e. that preordered it).

I’m not a web-wizard; worse I have the image handling acumen of a shaved, armless baboon. Yes, sadly, this is an excuse. But to make my excuses more palat­able I’ve finally updated the series pages for The Chron­i­cles of Elantra and House War, with the first chap­ters of the new books in either series. (I appear to have had to upload Cast in Chaos chapter several times because I’m not capable of cutting and pasting without cleaving off parts of the chapter in ques­tion. Yes, it’s been that kind of night…) I’m as usual a tiny bit behind, but this is the current writing news: House … Continue reading
