Yay! Looking forward to it, and to Seven Surrenders too. I do wish you wouldn’t use the term “prequel” that way though. The way I prefer to use it, which I think was the original intent, is to say (for example) that TLtL would have been a prequel if the books had come out in the other order, with SS first.

Amazon says my pre-ordered copy (placed months ago) will be released in November.

I had to order US import. Are they finally releasing UK version, if only of first book?

Neville — there is as yet no UK version.

Ridiculous and unacceptable…

Oh, I’m so excited you’re doing a run on this! Terra Ignota is a series that absolutely begs to be discuss, pored over, argued over vehemently :)

I’m just finishing up Seven Surrenders; once I do, I’ll be inhaling these essays as well…
