Your Questions for the Author Answered

Treachery’s Tools

Treachery’s Tools, the tenth book in the Imager Portfolio, had its official release today, and is available in hardcover and e-book format from Tor books, and in audiobook form from Tantor Media, and also through Audible.

Thirteen years after Madness in Solidar, the high Holders should have learned that it’s not a good idea to apply treacherous tactics to the Collegium, especially not when Alastar is still the Maitre, even if he is growing a bit older, but like most parents of a ten year old daughter, when the High Holders start targeting student imagers, including Alastar’s daughter Lystara, there’s nothing Alastar won’t try to protect them — and her. And Alyna, his wife and Lystara’s mother, can be even more deadly. But will that deadliness be enough against an army mutiny, thousands of armed High Holder troopers, and treachery everywhere, possibly even within the Collegium and the Rex’s palace?

Recluce Tales

First off, Recluce Tales will be available in audiobook format from Tantor Media. Because story collections don’t always sell as well as novels, even collections with almost entirely new material like Recluce Tales, I wasn’t certain whether it would appear in audiobook… but it will.

Second, I’ve been working with Tor and Tor.com for some “advance” goodies and tidbits that will hopefully tantalize readers in the months before Recluce Tales is published on January 3rd. I’m not about to reveal those yet, and you won’t see them until sometime this fall… but they are coming.
