  • White Wolf's Son Paperbacks Available in US

    Some US stores, like my local Barnes & Noble, now have the paperbacks of The White Wolf's Son in stock. I haven't found any other discussions of this on MWM (though I suppose I might have missed them), so I figured I should post the information.

    Some very interesting other titles, like a sale on the Cornelius Quartet here:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/044...590308?ie=UTF8

    Also one of the nastiest reviews I've ever seen, but luckily from some no-name, no-brain schnook.

      I see Amazon UK has it, apparently available now though published Sept 06, but is offering to ship it in 2 - 3 weeks; not their usual speedy service.

      Anyone know if the famous typos have been expunged?

        I thought of checking, but I didn't know where they appeared in the novel (I have yet to read any of the "Albino Trilogy"), so I didn't look.

          I've picked it up on Saturday in a specialised SF bookshop.

            I saw the two negative reviews. With all due respect to the writers, and at the risk of sounding like a knee-jerk fan/defender, I'm not sure they have read any of Mike's recent work, even though that is what they criticized. They didn't seem to have any knowledge of King of the City or the Second Ether.

              I haven't seen the reviews but lately I've been picking up some very aggressive reviews from hobbitoids. I suspect that's where a lot of this is coming from. It's too dumb to be irritating, though.

                Keele's original post gives me the opporunity to make a suggestion about the site. I love the site and think we're incredibly spoiled with how involved Mike is with the Q&A, but I wish there were more news items (or more easily located news items, anyway), so we wouldn't have to dig through a Q&A session to find out, for example, that White Wolf's Son has recently been released in paperback.

                A short while back Mike posted a list of everything he's currently working on - a new Elric short, the Peake memoir, etc. I've completely forgotten where exactly I read it and haven't been able to find it again since! I would think that most people who visit the site would be MOST interested in what Mike's currently working on, what's recently been published, what's about to be published... I know we get into all of this in the Q&A, but is there a way to make that kind of item more prominent?

                For a good example, I would love to see something like this: (www.georgerrmartin.com/news.html) on this site...

                Sorry if any of this sounds like undue criticism. I do appreciate the site very much.

                  I don't mind telling people what's coming or what I'm working on but unlike many author sites I really don't want this to be simply a means of advertising and promoting my own work. It was set up to discuss issues and answer questions from readers, essentially. That said, if others would like me to publish a list of forthcoming work and work in progress I'd be glad to do it. Let's see what others think.

                    Mike: I respect that you chose to avoid "commercializing" the site. I hope there would be some tasteful way to make these kind of "news" items a little more prominent without resorting to posting links to Amazon etc. all over the site... Maybe when you do write posts that deal with what you're currently working on, we could collect those in a separate thread somewhere? I remember being excited when I read that particular post where you mentioned a possible new Elric short and, like I said, I haven't been able to find it again since. That's the kind of thing I'm talking about.

                    Best, Nick.

                      A PORTRAIT IN IVORY is the Elric short. More a cameo, really, showing a little more of Elric's character. It's appearing in a book in which authors were asked to pick words (I picked 'Insouciant') from the US national spelling bee and write a story around them.
                      THE METATEMPORAL DETECTIVE is all the Seaton Begg stories collected and will appear next year from Pyr, with a cover by John Picacio.
                      The ELRIC BOOKS will begin reappearing next year from Del Rey in the order they were originally written, plus new material, much of which has either not been collected in the Elric books before or hasn't been collected at all, including scripts of graphic novel versions and so on. There will be six volumes done one every three months in much the same style as Del Rey's Howard volumes, with new specially commissioned illustrations as well as 'archive' pictorial material. Trade paperback format.
                      THE FLOATING FOREST will appear in a book called, I believe, Cross Plains Univrse. It's a tribute to Howard and has, I'm told, some superb material in it, taking many different readings of Howard. Mine is pretty conventional and features Rakhir the Red Archer.
                      THE SHADOWMEN VOLUME THREE will contain a Lapointe, the French Metatemporal Detective, story called THE AFFAIR OF THE BASSIN D'HIVERS.
                      Nightshade have commissioned John Davey to do a BEST SHORT STORIES OF MICHAEL MOORCOCK collection.
                      INTERZONE plan a special issue (I believe the 200th) featuring much of my work in progress, including part of THE SEDENTARY JEW and an interview with Andy Hedgecock.
                      I am doing a text, which will appear in French, for Mervyn Peake's 'Sunday Books' (drawings done for his young sons in the 1940s), including some comic verse and nonsense stories in the manner of Peake.
                      I am writing a memoir called LOVERS, a personal book about the Peakes, to be published next year by Methuen.
                      I am writing a personal memoir provisionally called A CHILD'S CHRISTMAS IN THE BLITZ, also for Denoel. We have yet to choose the illustrator.
                      That, too, will appear in French, though part of it will also appear in the Interzone issue, most probably.
                      I'm also working on a new Jerry Cornelius novel, which might or might not work out, provisionally called PRATTLE.
                      And I'm working on a book (or a long novella) called ALSATIA, set in that area of London, now gone, which became a sanctuary under the aegis of the Carmelite monks near Fleet Street.
                      Think that's about it.
                      Otherwise, I'm retired....

                              Yikes! Either we learn French fast or hope for English-language editions toot sweet!

                              Plenty to look forward to there.

                              Re: White Wolf's paperback Son; I went to Forbidden Planet in London today and couldn't find it on the shelf. Didn't have time to ask staff about it.

                              Any English sightings yet?
