Extracts from 'Embassytown', 'Stands a Shadow' & 'Sea of Ghosts'...

I can't remember signing up for the Tor UK newsletter (I do the strangest things when I'm drunk it would appear...) but every month a shiny new email newsletter lands in my inbox, eager to tell me all about itself and the books that I could be reading. It's a good deal if you're wondering, just click a button to register and you get to find out about all sorts of new books that are on the horizon.

If you have registered then you probably know all this already but for those of you who haven't I thought I'd do you a favour and point you at some extracts (from forthcoming Tor books) just in case you were wondering if a certain book was for you or not. This month's newsletter has links to extracts from China Mieville's 'Embassytown', Col Buchanan's 'Stands a Shadow' and Alan Campbell's 'Sea of Ghosts'. I have 'Embassytown' and 'Sea of Ghosts' waiting to be read but I have to say that the one I'm most looking forward to getting my hands on is 'Stands a Shadow' (although that won't be out until September), I loved 'Farlander' and I really want to know what happens next...

Just finished "Sea of Ghosts" (loved it), and I can't wait for "Stands a Shadow" - also loved "Farlander", so I've been chomping at the bit for Buchanan's second novel. Can't wait.
