might be old but it's still his finest imo.

last news on his site said Abarat 3 in Sept this year but that was before the news about his publisher dropping him appeared so not sure if that will change anything, been too long though, just finished 1 and about to start on 2 again, very very good.

This interview says Harper Collins sat on the Abarat 3 manuscript for 8 months before getting back to him and demanding a rewrite in 4 weeks !! That interview is dated August last year
I think it's going to get dropped by them and they'll then sit on the rights demanding unreasonable payments from alternative publishers for ages

having read it again I din't pick up on the what looks like two separate divisions at HC so presumably Abarat 3 isn't covered by HC adult and the article implies it's now done, but it can't be good if he's fallen out with them...

does seem to have a lot going on, maybe too much, and his output of books has been very slow since 2nd Abarat, seems be focusing much more on his art and photography these days.

I managed to nab number 1/100 of this new Abarat companion book...

Uber Limited, and if it is anything like the other books released through his website, it is going to be gorgous!

cool!

I sent them an email but it's probably too late by now...

Let's just hope books 4 and 5 are out in a much shorter timescale than 3

Would be interested to hear if you get one...they are not cheap, but I am sure it will be well worth it!

Ooft. Would love a copy of the companion book, but it's too rich for my blood!
No pun intended...

I notice they're good enough to give you a £4 discount if you pay £9 for the digital copy as well.

Is it just me, or should digital copies not be given away free to those purchasing the print version of a book?
I dunno, just seems logical, for some reason.

Pre-ordered from Amazon! For a new book the kindle version is very nicely priced too at only £6.49

I have had this pre-ordered for a good couple of months through Amazon, I'm sure they have always had the 27th as it's release date!

also had mine on order for a while but I assumed there were still some problems with the publishers, think the update on revelations was the first time it has actually been confirmed it will be released, tbh I was starting to worry it might be years away, I just hope he's got something sorted now.

hopefully this long delay will result in a shorter delay for books 4 and 5.
