Where to go and what to do in case of emergency.

Writing Steles of the Sky has been eating my life, to the detriment of blogging anything. However, there’s a bit of news, and so I am here to at least catch you up, if not be conversational.

Maybe in April. 0.0

ITEM:
Range of Ghosts is out in trade paperback today! And, of course, the e-edition is still available wherever fine pixels are purveyed.

ITEM:
Shattered Pillars comes out March 19th, and has gotten rave reviews from Booklist (starred), Kirkus (starred), and now Publishers Weekly. ETA: and Romantic Times!

Says Booklist:
“Bear’s astonishing world building is in full swing here, and she builds the arcs of her two major characters into what hopes to be a brilliant whole in the forthcoming final book.”

Says Kirkus:
“Second entry of a complex and beautifully rendered historical-fantasy trilogy.” (the whole review is on their website, but very very spoilery.)

Says Publisher’s Weekly:
“Bear drives the plot forward through darkness and loss, allowing her heroes little respite between trials as her villains gain power.” (Complete review available here.)

Says Romantic Times:
Shattered Pillars is the remarkable continuation of the first in the series, Range of Ghosts. Bear’s prose continues to weave itself effortlessly throughout the novel, with a detailed substance that does not hinder the action of the novel. The characters are full blooded and rich, shaped by their environment, and also by the challenges and casualties of it.” (Complete review here.)

ITEM:
I will be doing a small sort-of book tour to support Shattered Pillars, which will include signing dates in Massachusetts, Austin, and Minneapolis. Also, I will be over the con circuit this summer like brown on rice (what can I say, I eat hippie food), so come on out and say Hi!

(I’m trying to swing one more date in Austin, too.)
