UK Malazan Fans!

If you balked at paying fifteen quid a shot for the PS Publishing editions of the 'Bauchelain and Korbal Broach' books, if you didn't want to order from overseas... your time has come :o)

The Transworld edition of 'The Tales of Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, Vol 1' is due for publication on the 26th of August (which we all know means that you'll be able to get it a few days beforehand, Amazon have it ready to ship today) and contains 'Blood Follows'. 'The Lees of Laughter's End' and 'The Healthy Dead'. So that's all three books for the same price as one of the PS Publishing editions then... I like my PS Publishing editions but I wish I'd waited a bit longer. I've posted my thoughts elsewhere on the blog but the fact remains that they're all good tales that any Malazan fan will enjoy. Here's some blurb...

"Blood Follows" - In the port city of Lamentable Moll, a diabolical killer stalks the streets and panic grips the citizens like a fever. As Emancipor Reese's legendary ill luck would have it, his previous employer is the unknown killer's latest victim. But two strangers have come to town, and they have posted in Fishmonger's Round a note, reeking of death-warded magic, requesting the services of a manservant. "The Lees Of Laughter's End" - After their blissful sojourn in Lamentable Moll, the sorcerers Bauchelain and Korbal Broach - along with their manservant, Emancipor Reese - set out on the open seas aboard the sturdy ship Suncurl. Alas, there's more baggage in the hold than meets the beady eyes of the crew, and unseemly terrors awaken. For Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, and Emancipor Reese, it is just one more night on the high seas, on a journey without end. "The Healthy Dead" - The city of Quaint's zeal for goodness can be catastrophic, and no one knows this better than Bauchelain and Korbal Broach, two stalwart champions of all things bad. The homicidal necromancers - and their substance-addled manservant, Emancipor Reese - find themselves ensnared in a scheme to bring goodness into utter ruination. Sometimes you must bring down the name of civilization.

If you haven't got these books already then I think you know what to do... :o)

(All of which reminds me that I really do something other than think about digging 'Dust of Dreams' out from the bottom of the reading pile. Will I finish it by the time 'The Crippled God' is released? Now there's a challenge...)
