June 2013

Er, hello.

Okay, so I'm aware that we agreed it would be nice if we stayed in touch more, but you probably meant, well, you know, the odd Christmas card, or a toot of the horn if I passed you in the car. By now, though, I'm starting to feel like that strange bloke who pops around for a quick cup of tea—"Remember me? From the Spanish holiday? You said I should drop by if I was in the area, so here I am! And I only had to take a three-hour detour to get here..."—and is still hanging around a week later, complaining about the quality of the food and hogging the remote control. So I promise that this is the final newsletter for a month, at least. I'll miss you, but we can't go on like this. It just hurts too much...

The Wanderer in Unknown Realms US Cover

Anyway, today—today, Tuesday, the 25th of June, 2013—is the day that THE WANDERER IN UNKNOWN REALMS becomes available as an ebook in the United States and Canada. You can purchase the ebook wherever you buy your ebooks, and a full list of outlets is here. The U.S. cover's lovely, don't you think? Well, I think so. And the American ebook, like its UK counterpart, has all of Emily Hall's wonderful illustrations.

If you feel, as I do, that nothing quite takes the place of a hardcover book, you can still buy one of the signed and numbered collectible editions of WANDERER, directly from us or from one of these fine stores:

THE LIBRARY OF SOULS (or a Bibliomystery by Another Name...)

My Bibliomystery for The Mysterious Bookshop, THE CAXTON LENDING LIBRARY AND BOOK DEPOSITORY, has sold out in its collectible editions, but is available as a handy pocket-sized paperback from said shop, which ships around the world.

It will also be available in an electronic format from your favorite ebook seller, but because of Amazon's limits, the ebook has been retitled THE LIBRARY OF SOULS. This novella is identical to THE CAXTON LENDING LIBRARY..., so don't be fooled into buying two copies! Unless you really want to. Which, frankly, would be awfully kind of you, and I'm sure the folks at the store would appreciate it greatly.


Tonight I'll be appearing with the international bestseller, James Bond chronicler and soap opera star Jeffery Deaver, at the Pavilion Theatre in Dun Laoghaire, as part of the DLR Spring Voices 2013 series. Tickets may still be available; check here for details.

If you can't make it to Dun Laoghaire tonight but fancy a trip to Belfast tomorrow, Mr. Deaver and I will be appearing at the Ulster Museum at a program hosted by No Alibis bookstore. And if you can't make it to either event but would like a signed copy of Jeff's new Lincoln Rhyme novel, THE KILL ROOM, the fine folks at No Alibis will be happy to arrange that for you.


The Australian publicity tour for October is now confirmed. We'll have more details of actual events in the next newsletter, but for now I can tell you that I'll be in Brisbane for GenreCon from Oct 11th-13th, and possibly for a day or so after; Tasmania from the 16th-20th; and Perth from 22nd-27th, so events will be scheduled within those timeframes. Oh, and there may also be something in Singapore on the 8th, 9th, or 10th, but nothing has been confirmed yet.


The new Samuel Johnson novel, THE CREEPS (Hodder), and my collaboration with Jennie Ridyard, CONQUEST (Headline), will be published in the UK and elsewhere—except the US and Canada—on October 3rd. THE CREEPS will be published by Atria Books in the US and Canada on October 22nd, but that 25 percent of the G8 countries will have to wait until early in the new year for CONQUEST. Sorry! Meanwhile, work continues apace on the next Parker book, due in April/May 2014.

And that really is all I have to say. Thanks, as always, for your attention and support, and I hope the world's treating you well.

Until next time,
