So I've delivered a new novel. We have a possible title, but it's still subject to discussion and may well change, so I won't mention it just yet. What I can say is that the new book is the first novel-length work to be set in the Revelation Space universe since 2007, and is also a sequel to The Prefect. Despite the decade-long gap beween these books, this one is set only two years after the last and features a large number of recurring characters. Nonetheless I hope that it will be capable of being read independently of the first.
As far as I am aware publication is not likely to happen until early 2018.
I'm very excited. The Revelation Space universe (RSU?) is one I am very fond of. Being in the US, I expect to see this beastie a few months after your expected release date, so I will be studiously avoiding spoilers when it comes out.ReplyDelete
As The Prefect is my Reynolds favourite, I really look forward to this one!ReplyDelete
Brilliant! Looking forward to this very much.ReplyDelete
Great news, can't wait to get my hands on it !ReplyDelete
Very exciting news and looking forward to it (and I guess that 2018 is not that far away). Are you going to get the privilege of simultaneous publication in the U.S. and U.K.?ReplyDelete
P.S. Any embedded musical lyrics? :-)
Great news! Thanks!ReplyDelete
Reading this made my day! I cannot wait to get back into the revelation space universe again!ReplyDelete
WOOT! Looking forward to it!ReplyDelete
Great news! I love the tension in The Prefect and the book have some of the best characters you have written!ReplyDelete
The Prefect is one of my very favorite novels and so I am very much looking forward to this one!ReplyDelete
Great news! The Prefect is also one of my favorites! It will be great to finally return to the Revelation Space universe!ReplyDelete
I'm thinking a re-read of The Prefect may be in order!!!ReplyDelete
Looking forward to it!
Great news! Being a sequel to The Prefect I assume it takes place before the Melding Plague?ReplyDelete
What excellent news! I love Revelation Space - have read 3 times & The Prefect twice, so thIs is something to really look forward to. Thank you for your hard work!ReplyDelete
I can't tell you how excited I am about this news. RS is my favorite SF series of all time and I can't wait to spend more time in that universe.ReplyDelete
Gonna need a re-read too, I think. I can't remember if the end of The Prefect signaled the beginning of the Rust Belt or whether the Belle Epoque continued after the events of the book.
Thank you AR for being so prolific! We are very lucky, as fans, to follow a novelist who so consistently puts out awesome books and short stories.
Splendid. Prefect a book I enjoyed v much. Look fwd to it.ReplyDelete
Great news, but as someone else has commented, it will need a re-read of The Prefect...and i'd still like some stories of the Lighthugger crewsReplyDelete
You will let us know when preorders are being accepted?ReplyDelete
That's too far away. I need it now.ReplyDelete
So, as of today, Amazon.co.uk is still showing "Untitled Reynolds 5 of 10" for next January. But it's also showing "Revealer" with a release date of February 2019. Sequel to Revenger perhaps? I certainly hope so. I thought Revenger would make a really great film.ReplyDelete
Yes, the latter one is the intended follow-up to Revenger, and the untitled one is the new Prefect book. We're just narrowing down the title at the moment.ReplyDelete
This is great news! I can't waitReplyDelete
Amazon is now showing releases for both November and January - Aurora Rising and Elysium Fire respectively. Got massively excited. Yay two books in 2 months! Then realised Aurora Rising is an alternative title for The Prefect. Gutted, lol. Still loving the title for January's. Can't wait.ReplyDelete
