Very pleased to announce that my story ‘The Hall of the Diamond Queen’ will now appear in the upcoming Unbound anthology from Grim Oak Press. Keen eyed readers will recall that this story was originally slated for inclusion in the sadly defunct Unveiled anthology and I’m grateful to Shawn Speakman at Grim Oak for finding a home for it.
Unbound will feature an introduction from Terry Brooks, cover and interior art by Todd Lockwood and twenty all new stories from the following authors:
David Anthony Durham
Jason M. Hough
Mary Robinette Kowal
Michael J. Sullivan
When I started all this if someone had told me I’d one day appear in a line-up like that I would’ve though they were very nice but also very deluded. An awful lot can happen in three years.
A release date for Unbound is yet to be set but it’s expected to appear in early summer 2015. Grim Oak Press will be taking pre-orders on their website from 1st March. In addition to the ebook and trade hardcover editions, there will also be two special editions; a hardcover Advance Review Copy limited to 250 copies and a signed & numbered leather-bound edition limited to 500 copies. Anyone who orders a trade hardcover or ARC edition in March will also receive a free copy of the ebook. I’m also told the above cover is just a placeholder and the final version will feature an all new illustration by the excellent Todd Lockwood.
