I got a present at Fantasycon last weekend; the Ebury publicity team had brought along an advance copy of the UK paperback of The Kingdom of Bones, and handed it to me at the launch of Random House’s new Del Rey imprint.
It is cool.
The cover is by Headdesign, who provided art for the current set of Ian Fleming’s James Bond novels from Vintage. The back of the jacket features Sebastian Becker’s Bulldog revolver.
As a bonus you get the opening chapters of The Bedlam Detective, the Becker-led follow-up. That one’s scheduled for May 2013.
But this one’s is available from December 6th. Just in time for… well, you know the drill.
