glad we will finally see Sabetha  :smile:

I can only see it leading to more misery for our bastards, though. It's Locke's turn, I suppose.

I have not read the excerpt. I am, however, checking out the online serial that Lynch is writing. It is slow at the moment, but shows promise and I can't wait to read some more.

...still hasn't returned, either. The next book's publication looks, once again incredibly uncertain. Although, there have been rumours going around that Scott may well be done. Then again, Pat handed in 'his' draft for the follow-up to Name of the Wind last May, and we're still wondering when that'll see the light of day.

Back to... err, last August.... (damn I need to read this forum more often!)

and in response to vega1 about the language, i can understand where you are coming from, however i liked the language as it made it feel more real.

Just to be clear, I had no issues with the colorful language itself. As I said it can add alot to the dialogue.

A while ago, for kicks and giggles, I read the 2- and 1-star reviews on Amazon (there weren't many). The one I liked the most said something about running out of White-Out trying to censor all the bad words ... by page 50 or so.
I kind of liked the creativity of it. Not just "F*** that!", but ... you know, that bit in Red Seas (I think?) where a girl yelled out 'Come on over and we'll see who's got the limp dick!' It annoys me in real life when people use f*** every few words or even every few sentences, but it felt like well-written profanity, if you know what I mean. Real honest "colorful" language.

I must have more information on the new book. I hate all this waiting around. Does anyone have anything new?

So I can just put anything I want here?

I can't remember what I said last time to warrant a special mention, but I don't really give two shits either way. I'll read his book if he ever releases it. He's a pretty darn good author. But I don't care about his personal issues one whit.

I do believe you were annoyed about his going on about his depression the last time it happened, hence the reference.

Lynch telling someone what he thinks of their criticism. Fantastic. :lol:

Scott Lynch responds.

edit... ok, cant post the link because its got a bad word in it, tried both posting directly and hiding behind naming the link. You'll just have to change it yourself to see it.

Hate when authors do this. He's better getting his head out of his ass and returning to writing.

When authors do what? For once, it is an author responding to criticism and not making an ass out of himself. That doesn't happen often.

Jemisin did it as well just recently. Then you have the whole Gaiman nonsense.

From what I can tell, Gaiman rarely says anything worth listening to.

Dear readers and fans of the Gentlemen Bastards—

I’ll lay it out as plainly as I can.

An update:

Quote
With the utmost regret, we have been compelled to move The Thorn of Emberlain from its expected autumn 2015 release date to a 2016 date. I requested an opportunity to write this note so I could emphasize how little this is the fault of anyone but myself. My publishers around the world have, in fact, held the door open for a length of time that is somewhere between heroic and insane. The fault is mine; the severity of my ongoing anxiety attacks has simply made it impossible to turn the manuscript in and commit to the accelerated production process our original release date would have required.
