Lots of ECHO CITY stuff

July 18th, 2011 • Posted in Book News |

ECHO CITY is on the shelves across the UK.  It’s getting some great reviews:

‘Echo City … Brilliantly conceived and exquisitely well written by one of the genre’s most original and inventive writers. Tim Lebbon is one of the few fantasy authors whose new works I eagerly anticipate’ — Steven Erikson

Lebbon’s prose is a pleasure, and so too his seamless hybridisation of horror and dark fantasy – were there to be another novel set in the same world, I’d gladly go back for a second helping’ –The Speculative Scotsman

‘ECHO CITY is a gloriously atmospheric piece that pulls you right into the various Cantons and leaves you on the wall of the city, staring out across the desert and wondering what lies beyond the horizon . . . An engrossing story’ — Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review

You can read blogs on the orbit site here and here, and they’ve also designed a beautiful wallpaper you can download for various devices.

And coming soon, another blog on the Orbit website about swearing, ale, and hand-jobs in fantasy fiction.

I’ll be signing copies of the book this Saturday, 23rd July, at Abergavenny Bookshop, from 12 til 1pm.  Then after that some drinks at the Hen & Chickens.

Next Saturday, 30th, I’ll be signing at Forbidden Plant in London.  That’s just two days after my birthday!  Details here.  Please come along to one of these signings!

If you read Echo City, I’d love to hear what you think, so please do leave comments on Twitter, Facebook, or reviews on Amazon.  Thanks!  And I hope you enjoy the book.  Here’s the first line:

As it left the city, the thing did not once look back.

    Congratulations on the new book, and what a stroke of luck, logged on here just now to discover your doing signings here in Aber tomorrow. I’ve been meaning to get round to reading some of your work, ever since discovering you once worked for a firm I worked for some years back, plus of course the genre is a favourite :). Looking forward to Echo City and congratulations on your ongoing success.
