IN PRINT: The Green Knight's Squire

Gilberic Parzival Moth is a strange and lonely boy who has grown up without a father, raised by a single mother who moves from town to town in fear of something she will not name. His only friends are animals, with whom he has always been able to speak. But when he awakens one night at the Thirteenth Hour, and sees for the first time the cruel reality of the secret rule of Elf over Man, he begins to learn about his true heritage, the heritage of Twilight.

And when his mother finally tells him the terrible truth of her past, he must choose whether to continue running with her in fear, or learning how to fight against ancient powers that are ageless, soulless, and ultimately damned. THE GREEN KNIGHT'S SQUIRE, the first volume of MOTH & COBWEB, is an astonishing new series about magical worlds of Day, Night, and Twilight by John C. Wright and consists of three books:
  • Book One: Swan Knight's Son
  • Book Two: Feast of the Elfs
  • Book Three: Swan Knight's Sword
John C. Wright is one of the living grandmasters of science fiction and the author of THE GOLDEN AGE, AWAKE IN THE NIGHT LAND, and IRON CHAMBER OF MEMORY, to name just three of his exceptional books. He has been nominated for the Nebula Award, for the Hugo Award, and his novel SOMEWHITHER won the 2016 Dragon Award for Best Science Fiction Novel at Dragoncon.

But Malwyn has been driving the production elves hard, which is why we're also pleased to announce a new ebook as well, namely, the second volume of my collected columns, which is entitled CRISIS & CONCEIT, 2006-2009.

Three-time nationally syndicated columnist Vox Day has been one of the most astute observers of the American political scene since the turn of the century. Known for successfully predicting the financial crisis of 2008 as well as the election of U.S. President Donald Trump in 2016, the iconoclastic writer’s work appeared regularly around the country in newspapers such as the Atlanta Journal/Constitution, the Boston Globe, the San Jose Mercury News, and the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

Beginning in 2001, Vox Day wrote more than 500 columns for WorldNetDaily and Universal Press Syndicate. CRISIS & CONCEIT, 2006-2009 is a collection of the columns published between the years 2006 and 2009, and addresses a wide variety of subjects, from economics and the financial crisis of 2008 to atheism and the history of war.

It is available at the Castalia House bookstore as well as from Amazon.

Will there be any CH special offers?

Fantastic, there goes my fun money for the next two weeks ...

Blogger VD June 08, 2017 6:25 AM  

Next week. I don't like to send out too many New Release emails, and we have a more significant ebook to announce. These two books are more for the hard core Castalia readers.

I suppose it will be another contribution to your dog food fund, which must be substantial.

One thing I know: It is never wrong to buy John C Wright in hardcover.

@4 "another contribution to your dog food fund, which must be substantial."

Always happy to feed the dogs... and the fam!

STILL think a Darkstream with Vox lying on a chaise (like Cerno does) and (at least one!) Rottie lying on him would be cool. Oh, but then Vox would pretty quickly be unable to BREATHE, which would shorten the Darkstream... Ah well.

I have had this policy since Null-A Continuum. It pleases me immensely to have any role in actually producing them.

I don't know how you did it, but on your cover picture you actually manage to look like an Italian....

Blogger VD June 08, 2017 10:23 AM  

I told you I can be a bit of a chameleon.... Anyhow, an Italian photographer took that picture.

Ordered. This is a book I'll be leaving to my descendants.

Blogger MisesMat June 08, 2017 12:24 PM  

Will The Green Knight's Squire be out in paperback soon?

Blogger VD June 08, 2017 1:45 PM  

No, we don't plan to release it in paperback. The price would be too close to the hardcover.

It's here! It's here!

So many people have been asking!

Anonymous WaterBoy June 08, 2017 6:03 PM  

Curious...when I click the embedded Amazon link, it shows there are four options for buying it new. And when I click on that link, it shows three other booksellers, who obviously don't even have it in stock (due to their much later shipping dates), and significant price markups.

1. Do these opportunists actually think people are stupid enough to bypass the lower price and faster delivery of Amazon directly for the chance to buy through some third-party retailer instead?

2. If you order through a third-party, is it the case where all they have to do is turn around and submit a new order to Amazon at the lower price but using your shipping information instead, so they don't even have to re-ship it?

3. Are there actually people stupid enough to do this, anyway?

Blogger Matthew June 08, 2017 7:05 PM  

Waterboy, it's a curious facet of the new way publishing works. Random booksellers pick up on the distribution before Amazon does, and we have not yet found an approach to prevent that.

Including my own son, who has been reading this aloud from an e-reader to my wife while she works in the kitchen at night.

Thanks, Matthew. It just seemed a rather odd business model on which to try making a profit.

I am always impressed at John C Wrights output. The slush pile of his works is actually starting to challenge the unread history books on my bookshelf (which is both considerable and leading me to start switching to ebooks, as the bookshelf takes up a lot of physical space in the room....)

Is the column collection DRMed? Any plans to offer it through Kobo?

Anonymous Clay The Swamp Spartan June 09, 2017 5:46 AM  

I'll have to give it to ya, least you're not getting any uglier:)

No. Yes, it should be available there in 1-2 days.

Blogger Stephen St. Onge June 10, 2017 10:06 AM  

        Kobo had it before the day was out.  Purchased and being read.

        Looking forward to the third collection.
