Book News - The Republic of Thieves, by Scott Lynch

In case you missed it yesterday, according to the Gollancz Blog a publication date has been set for The Republic of Thieves, by Scott Lynch.

The Republic of Thieves is the third book in the Gentlemen Bastards sequence, which began with The Lies of Locke Lamora, published in 2006, and followed by Red Seas Under Red Skies in 2007.  Since then fans around the world have eagerly awaited the continuation of the critically acclaimed fantasy series, and later this year we will finally get to find out what happened to Locke and his trusty companion Jean.

The Republic of Thieves is scheduled to be released October 8, 2013 in the United States, and October 10, 2013 in the UK and Commonwealth.  Simon Spanton of Gollancz has confirmed that Scott Lynch has delivered the finished manuscript to the publishing house, and the author himself Tweeted his pleasure at finally having a firm publication date.

If you haven't tried this series, I highly recommend it, and you've got plenty of time to read Books 1 and 2 before Book 3 arrives in October.
