The Republic of Thieves set for Spring 2011 release
I wasn't going to bother posting this news since it's likely to be across half the blogosphere within hours, but since I get several hits a day from people googling "Republic of Thieves release date" I thought I might as well blog it up.
So, yeah - apparently The Republic of Thieves is being lined up for release in early 2011.
Wert has got his fingers deep into this particular pie and unsurprisingly was the first to break the news:
"I have heard back from Gollancz that they are planning to publish The Republic of Thieves in Spring 2011 at the same time as the US edition of the book. They confirm the book has been delivered and is now being revised and edited to this end."
If this schedule goes to plan, it will represent quite a big gap between the second and third books - Red Seas Under Red Skies was released in 2007, and four years is a considerable delay for a new-ish author who's trying to establish a career. Still, the expectation only seems to have grown in the intervening years, so the signs look good for Lynch.

A child of the eighties, I was raised on a steady diet of Ghostbusters, Thundercats and Transformers. I eventually discovered fantasy books via the awesome Fighting Fantasy series, and my love of fantasy led me to create Speculative Horizons, a popular book review blog I ran for three years. In 2010 I joined Orbit to work as an editorial assistant.
