NEWS: Stephen Hunt’s “The Rise of the Iron Moon” Book Trailer! + Jon Courtenay Grimwood Signs a Three-Book Deal with Orbit!

February 5, 2009 saw the recent publication of Stephen Hunt’s new novel, “The Rise of the Iron Moon”. “The Rise of the Iron Moon” is the third Jackelian novel after The Court of the Air and The Kingdom Beyond the Waves, and to help promote the book, Stephen Hunt himself has put together a simply hilarious and awesome book video! Here’s the official press release:

Ladies and gentlemen of the science fiction & fantasy press. There are book trailers, and then there are book trailers unlike anything you have seen before, and unlike anything—in all probability—you will ever see again.

A missing episode of one of the animated Star Trek TV series has been found which features
Stephen Hunt's new fantasy/SF novel, “The Rise of the Iron Moon”.

Given this is Hunt's latest book—just out this Monday in the UK in hardback from
HarperCollins—and the TV episode is from the 1970s, a temporal paradox is suspected!


You can either view the video above or via the direct link
HERE. Whatever you decide, just make sure you watch it! It’s brilliant :) In related news, Liviu will be reviewing “The Rise of the Iron Moon” shortly, and I’m still running a giveaway HERE for FIVE COPIES of “The Rise of the Iron Moon”!

In other news,
Orbit Books recently announced the following:

I’m delighted to announce that
Orbit has acquired world rights in three new books by BSFA Award-winning author Jon Courtenay Grimwood. Although best known—and justly feted—for his extraordinary multi-layered science fiction, Jon’s new books will be historical fantasies. The first book, provisionally titled “The Duke’s Blade”, will be published internationally by Orbit in early 2011, and will chart the rise of a penniless orphan to become one of the most powerful men in 15th century Venice. It is a story of conspiracy and intrigue, of ambition and revenge. It is the story of Tibor, the vampire assassin of Venice.

You can read the full press release
HERE.

NOTE: Vampires and historical fiction worked extremely well in Jasper Kent’sTwelve”. Just imagine what
Jon Courtenay Grimwood can do with such a concept. I can’t wait!
