First this excellent news from Cheryl Morgan:

...Ben (Aaronovitch) will be writing some Rivers of London comics. As I understand it, the idea is to fill in some background around the series, rather than do adaptations of the novels, or new Peter Grant adventures. Ben and Paul, knowing each other from old, occasionally had a friendly dig at each other, the most obvious of which was when Ben declared that writing comics was easy. We shall see.

Second, this is the sixth year's mind of the General's Death. RIP and all, though I'm glad to see that his reincarnation has uhh returned, more or less, to publishing health.

Oh, very interesting! Thank you for the heads up on that first.

And that also reminds me, I must drop by the local bookstore on Monday (Waterstones) and reserve a copy of the new Cornell. I will also be asking about the new Melissa Scott - I don't think they'll be getting it in, but I should probably check before ordering it from Amazon. Support your local bookstore and all that.

Please report back on the Cornell when you get it. It sounds much too bloody for me, but maybe this one won't hit my particular sensitivities.

amazon.ca doesn't have the Scott yet. Am surprised Amazon itself does, given that its publishing date is the 20th. And as ever, Amazon already has used copies. Be careful who you give your ARCs to, say I.

I will do. I think I've heard from some sources that it goes differently in some respects to the first book, so we shall see.

amazon.uk doesn't have the Scott yet either, and won't till the 20th.
