New Books Galore!

September 26th, 2008 • Posted in Book News |

Okay, loads of news to catch up on, so I’m going to do so in a few posts over the next few days. Fantasycon was last weekend – I’ll write a more in depth report on that over the weekend – and I had two book launches there, launching three books in total.

The first was on Friday night for my new novella THE REACH OF CHILDREN. It looks utterly fabulous, as you can see here, and there are a few reviews incoming over the next few weeks. Mike Marshall Smith, who wrote the wonderful introduction, says:

Lebbon has written one of the best and most emotionally convincing stories about death that I have ever read


This is one of the most personal stories I’ve ever written, and I’m actually quite nervous that it’s out there now … there’s so much about me here, and stuff I’ve gone through, that it feels as if I’ve offered something private up for view. But I’ve also found the writing of the novella very satisfying and rewarding, and I hope you enjoy it. If you’re interested, check out the details here.

Also launched at Fantasycon, my two books from Allison & Busby, FALLEN and THE EVERLASTING. FALLEN just had a great review in the latest issue of SFX magazine, giving it 4 out of 5 and saying:

If Lebbon continues writing the Noreela stories to this high standard, the series could be as exciting as George R. R. Martin’s Song of Ice and Fire novels – definitely a series to watch.

Which is nice.

More postings here over the next few days, including:
