Congratulations Cory! A book with world changing potential. Thanks for seeing what others do not. The power of Hope.


#3

Yay! Looking forward to it! (But we have to wait until 2017? Grrrr.)


#4

In a world where cynicism and hollowness basically seem t orun everywhere… we could all do wit ha little hope. I look forward to this.


#5

Congrats! Does a “very pleasing sum” mean you’re taking us all out for drinks?


#6

I can’t wait to read it! I hope one of those 20 cities is Portland(However if it is I am unable to promise you that you won’t get peed on during your flight)!

An airline passenger faces charges after authorities say he urinated on other travelers on a flight from Anchorage to Portland, Oregon.

Sincere congratulations, Cory – I can’t wait to read it.

May I suggest booking Todd Rundgren and friends to play for your release party?


#8

Congrats, but I seem to have missed your previous novels “Anarchy” and “State”.

How finished is a sold book scheduled for release in two years? I know nothing of publishing, I am curious.


#10

Short answer: it’s a big release, and there’s a lot of moving parts (some of which will be announced later).


#11

Congratulations Cory!


#12

Tease.

I was curious about the same thing - the long time between book deal and actual release. There was a recent article about Ernest Cline’s Ready Player One being made into a movie, and in the article it was mentioned that the movie deal was made at the time of the book deal, a full year before book release. Which seems to me to be the very worst time to do a movie deal since the story hasn’t had time to build the value of a fan base. It looks like he’s making up for it with his later works, so was that early movie deal the result of a first-time author disadvantage?

This stood out to me. Why would Tor buy a book? Do they have a history of buying rights to books? It’s fitting, but also seems out of the ordinary.

(oh and congrats, that’s AWESOME)


#15

Tor Books, not Tor, which specializes in SciFi and fantasy. They’ve published a lot of Cory’s works.


#16

Ah hah! Makes sense now.


#17

…you don’t say…


#18

Congratulations, and thanks! Now, with some luck, to cope with two years of anticipation.


#19

Tor is planning to publish the title in early 2017.

If “early” 2017 holds true…and since we’re coming into late 2015 now…not a full two years, it seems :smile:
