Liz William’s Detective Chen Novels find New Publishing home (by Mihir Wanchoo)

There is good news for all Inspector Chen fans, Liz Williams had said that she was trying to procure a new home for her wonderful books after the Night Shade debacle. She had also said that there were some prospective options and now finally she has confirmed that Morrigan Books is set to publish the remaining two books in the series, namely "Iron Khan" & "Morningstar".

For more information about this, head over to Liz William' blog to read her announcements [here + here]. Also here's the official announcement from the new publishers themselves. The books will be having new covers done by Stephanie Pui-Mun Law and it should be interesting to see how they match up with the previous fantastic ones done by Jon Foster.

Iron Khan is tentatively scheduled for December 2010 & I for one can't wait to read the penultimate entry in this beloved series of mine. And for those who can't have more of Chen and the rest, Liz Williams is also having a short story sale, the details of which are over here. These short stories are all new and since I have read the first one, I can't wait to read the rest.


In an unrelated note, Mihir has rescanned the David Gemmell' short story presented by us HERE, including the cover of the magazine and a better view of the story pages themselves.

Yeah, I learned about this about a week or two ago from a forum member in SFFWorld, and it's very nice to see. Quite excited since it means that I can put the series back near the top of my reading list.

I reckon it'll be about late this year or early next year when I give the series a shot.

Anyways, nice to see an author that got dropped find life somewhere else... seems like there are plenty of similar examples where there's no seeming happy ending.

@ B.

Yeah I saw KatG's post about the books, ironically this post got delayed as otherwise this would have gone up much earlier.

Coincidently Mihai has a similar post today, so I'm guessing both our blogs are mentally attuned :)
