Steven Erikson Signing at Forbidden Planet.

From the press release...

Forbidden Planet is pleased to announce a signing by Steven Erikson for the final tale of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, The Crippled God, at the Forbidden Planet Megastore, 179 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, WC2H 8JR, on Saturday 26th February 1 – 2pm.

The final, apocalyptic chapter in one of the most original, exciting and acclaimed fantasy series of our time is coming to Forbidden Planet!

The Bonehunters are marching to Kolanse and to an unknown fate. Tormented and exhausted, they are an army on the edge of mutiny. But Adjunct Tavore will not relent. If she can hold her forces together, if the fragile alliances she has forged can survive and if it is within her power, one final act remains. She might not possess the gift of magic, she may be deemed plain and instill little loyalty and yet Tavore Paran is nothing if not bold. For she means to challenge the gods... Ranged against Tavore and her allies are the Forkrul Assail. Drawing upon a terrible unworldly power, they desire to cleanse the world – to annihilate everything in order to begin anew. Meanwhile In the realm of Kurald Galain, home to the long lost city of Kharkanas, thousands of refugees have gathered upon the First Shore. They await the coming of the Tiste Liosan. But this is a war they cannot hope to win – are they truly so ready to die for a lost cause? There is to be a reckoning. But none can conceive of the true, terrifying, enormity of things. For the Elder Gods are at work. Their intention is to shatter the chains that bind a force of utter devastation and release her from her eternal prison. Indeed, it would seem that once more there will be dragons in the world...




Will I be there? You bet I will! Will I have read 'Dust of Dreams' by then (let alone 'The Crippled God'...)? Erm...
