A magnificent monster

You have to admit, that would look impressive on your bookshelf. My own copy hasn't arrived yet, so a reader was kind enough to post an image on Gab.

And on a tangential matter, in answer to a question that has been asked a few times, A SEA OF SKULLS will be released in print when it is precisely the same size, which is to say in the April-May timeframe.

In the meantime, if you want to acquire your own magnificent monster, A THRONE OF BONES is available also available in an alarmingly enormous paperback.

Maybe the EU confiscated your copy. You can't spell A Throne of Bones - Vox Day without VOTO NO.

I'll pay the extra shipping and handling to get authentic SDL signed copies.

As someone who is somewhat new to eBooks, it's interesting seeing the physical copy of something I read on my kindle, and comparing it to other stuff I've read. I slogged through the WoT series and those books felt way longer than ToB did.

Received my paperback of ATOB earlier this week. It's...large

No, it would be prohibitively expensive.

That is one of the most gorgeous covers I've seen. That's going on my Amazon wish list.

That is simply beautiful.

When is the Audible version coming out?

A thing of beauty ... very nice, sublime even.

Can't wait to see it side-by-side on my shelf with SoS.

Vox, it's a bit of a moot point since I've already placed my order but, other than the fact that it's casebound (and corrected typos), are there differences between the Castalia edition of ToB and my old Marcher Lord hardcover?

We need more lawyers and judges to read your stuff. Then when they throw the book at someone, it'll really leave a mark.

I, for one, am glad you've been taking your time with the second one, this series could become an epic fantasy classic.

Blogger VD December 16, 2016 1:33 PM  

When is the Audible version coming out?

Not for years, most likely. But The Last Witchking is nearly complete.

No, none at all.

It's a gamble, but you might be famous someday making it a valuable collectors item for my grandchildren. :|

Nice pic but where is the steaming cup of black eye coffee?

"Perhaps it is only the thoroughly degraded who can truly find pleasure in doing good."

Pure gold. I'll not reveal the author, I'll let you discover for yourself.

``...an alarmingly enormous paperback.`` One reason I stopped reading Stephen King.

All part of the VFM strength training program. Hold that sucker in your left hand for 24hrs and you'll have no trouble holding your rifle steady during long sessions of firing squad duty.

If I had known how many people were going to see that picture I would have used a better camera.

No, it would be prohibitively expensive.

And how. I myself am holding out hope that by the time the Arts of Dark and Light trilogy is complete, it will have found such an audience that a signed special edition becomes practical. Something like the silk-bound William Morrow edition of Stephenson's Baroque Cycle would be great, but a smyth-sewn set from Easton Press seems like a more natural fit since they use Italian leather.

The trilogy would run at least $450 to $600 depending on extras like plates and illustrations, but I have a feeling they would appreciate. The VFM would never buy it though, since that is halfway to buying a decent AR.

The mug of Nespresso Fortissio Lungo is just out of frame.

My first batch arrived yesterday, but I couldn't open it while the intended recipients were lurking around. Gift-wrapping this weekend should be fun.

Your camera did fine, Helixfreak. Lighting is hard. Here's an attempt at correcting for the color cast:

Does that match your floor better?

Now THAT'S pretty!

Blogger Helixfreak December 16, 2016 5:57 PM  

Does that match your floor better?

Much better! Only, it's my kitchen table, not the floor. The book isn't that heavy.

Damnit Vox, you've got to write more. Devoured ASOS in days, and now there's even more hanging threads begging to be explored further.

You're fantastic at weaving a large, interconnected world and picking out the key perspectives to view it from. MOAR!
