Congrats To Adrian Tchaikovsky

Before I head out the door, I wanted to say a quick contratulations to fellow Tor UK stablemate Adrian Tchaikovsky, who has signed a US deal with Lou Anders at Pyr.

We’ve just done a deal to bring Empire in Black and Gold, Dragonfly Falling, and Blood of the Mantis out here. All three books will be appearing from Pyr in early 2010, published in trade paperback in three consecutive months , March-April-May, so US readers can catch up with this dynamic series fast. Shadows of the Apt is a fantastic fantasy, with steampunk elements, that absolutely blew me away when I read it. Airships, steam trains, giant insects, fantastic characters, great action…

They’re both absolutely great guys, and I wish them oodles of success.
