Just wanted to drop some updates on you all. We’ll start with the most often asked about:
No new word to report, except that the project is still moving forward and still looking strong. I have read a draft or two of the proposals flitting back and forth, and they bear a pleasingly strong resemblence to the novels, and may include dispensing of “Erik” Dresden for Harry Dresden.
(Which makes me happy. The most prominent Eric in my life was a high-school rival for the affections of a girl. He 1) egged my car and 2) got the girl. All in all, it worked out better for me that way, but my car’s paint is STILL stained with eggs.)
SCI-FI BOOK CLUB OMNIBUS
The first three books of the series (STORM FRONT, FOOL MOON, GRAVE PERIL) have been picked up by the Science Fiction Book Club for publication in an omnibus edition (in hardback). They are putting a rush on this one, and are going to be out in March or April, in order to be available before Dead Beat hits the shelves. No word on books 4-6, but I assume that if the first omnibus sells well, the second volume will follow.
FOREIGN LANGUAGE EDITIONS
If I haven’t mentioned it, the Dresden Files are now being published in Russian, Polish, Chinese (specifically Mandarin, I think), Czech and we are now in talks for a German edition as well, which look very promising.
ROLE PLAYING GAME
You know all about that one. 🙂
I’ll share more as I hear it, as always.
