Maps and Starships

Nice news to report here. Gaunt and Bone #2: The Silk Map (Pyr Books) is on sale as of today. This adventure sends the rogues on a quest along a trade route inspired by the real world's historical Silk Road. Their goal: a new source of ironsilk, a mysterious substance that Gaunt and Bone have been employing now and again since their first appearance. If they can find it, a demigod is prepared to reunite them with lost family. But there are many competitors, and the road is long ...

I'm also delighted to have a story included in the reprint anthology Space Opera (Prime Books), edited by Rich Horton. "The Mote-Dancer and the Firelife" first appeared in Beneath Ceaseless Skies Online Magazine, and you can read it there. However, I've read many of the other stories in the anthology before, and if you enjoy a good space adventure I think this book will be a great read!


  1. I was happy to see The Silk Map wrapped in brown cardboard and waiting for me on my porch when I got home from work today. The book has a nice heft to it. I hope I'm not spoiling any surprises, but the map is a great addition; it's nice to have a bird's-eye view of the places through which Gaunt and Bone have been slipping. Looking forward to diving in.

  2. Thanks, Nik. I was really happy with the map too.
