It's that time of year again!
We're now 26 days away from the release of The Rhesus Chart, the fifth book in the Laundry Files series. And indeed, the photograph above came from my UK publisher Orbit's office, where the first stack of hardcovers arrived earlier this week: this means they're on their way to warehouses and shops in time to go on sale on the 3rd of July. (I'll have some shots of the American hardcover by and by ...)
For the first time on this blog, I'm going to be running a competition to promote the Laundry Files! Details to be announced, but the prizes will include signed first edition hardbacks and some surprises from the Laundry Souvenir Store. I'll be running extracts from the story, And if you're lucky enough to be in Edinburgh I'm be reading from "The Rhesus Chart" and signing copies at Blackwell's bookshop at 6:30pm on July 2nd!
