I read 'Lies of Locke Lamora' sometime earlier in the year, and enjoyed it well enough. I had some issues with the book, but overall it wasn't half bad. Since then, I've been harassing my library to get a copy of the sequel, with no success (*mutters about unfathomable 'non-reservable' copies*). I live in a pretty middling town, too, so there aren't that many good book stores, and I don't shop online, so...yeah, difficulties acquiring. However, I remain interested about Lynch and his works, and will endeavour to get my hands on Lies again (library copy, for the first go) and Red Seas under Red Skies.
Anyway, the reason I hit the post button was to find out what's going on with the publication of his following book, the Republic of Thieves, and why isn't there a good community concerning this author? His website looks like it hasn't been updated in a year, as well. There's barely any news, the interviews are from '06 and he hasn't updated his LiveJournal since '07. So, what's the dealio, people?
