Posted on: March 14, 2013


Yes friends, it’s true.

From the Gollancz site:

Publication Date confirmed for Scott Lynch’s THE REPUBLIC OF THIEVES

Gollancz Author: Jon – March 14th, 2013

The Orion Publishing Group (UK & Commonwealth) and the Random House Publishing Group (US) are thrilled to announce the publication of the third instalment in Scott Lynch’s popular fantasy series that began with The Lies of Locke Lamora. THE REPUBLIC OF THIEVES will release on October 10, 2013 in the UK and Commonwealth and October 8, 2013 in the US.

Scott Lynch’s first novel, The Lies of Locke Lamora, was a critically acclaimed hit when it was published in 2006. Bestselling author George R.R. Martin called it “a fresh, original, and engrossing tale by a bright new voice in the fantasy genre.” Publication rights sold in more than 20 countries. The second book in the series, Red Seas Under Red Skies, followed in 2007 to more critical acclaim. Since then, readers have anxiously awaited the next installment. Scott has now delivered the final manuscript and we are able to confirm publication date.

I should get a cookie for being so polite and diplomatic.

I think your tweet shows great self-containment, under the circumstances! I’m choking in my own squeals while smiling like a lunatic and flailing and bouncing and when is it October?


Of course you’ll wait for the paperback, right? heh, heh.


OMG – can I get a woo hoo! This is definitely a woo hoo moment! So happy!! Jean Tannen …… sigh
Lynn 😀


poor Johnny Depp. he’s been replaced!


Finally, we can read more of their journey! Come on clock-work maids!


Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog earlier and commenting, means a lot. Love your material, I’m also an avid reader myself. If you ever need some books referred or get sick of pages, stop by my site and you’ll find some movies you may want to watch. Thanks again.


Had a great time reading the first two novels for the first time last year with the readalong. Can’t wait!


OK, you are going to think this weird – well, not you because you are weird like me in this regard – I was dreaming of these books two nights ago, I shit you not. I am so looking forward to Book 3. Yeah for Lynch – you make us laugh, cry, tear our hearts out and put them back crooked, and we love you for it. Do it again, please!


i would never think you are weird for dreaming of these books. because of course *cough cough* I wouldn’t ever, ever dream of these books *cough cough* 😉


I love your Tweet! Poor guy could be worn out if we all made the same offer in exchange for ARCs! 😀


I’m going to take that comment in the context of my choosing, and respond with “I’m first in line”. 😉


I hope it lives up to my eager anticipations. Thanks, Red!


me too.

I remember when Red Seas came out, 2 bad things happened: I read it so fast the first time that i missed all the subtleties, and it’s drastically different than the first book, so I was all like “this is different. I don’t know if I like different”. through my own preconceived notions of what I wanted, I wasn’t sure if I liked it. Second time through, I came to my senses, and loved it.

When RoT comes out, I think I’m going to take some sick days from work so I can sit home reading non stop. Because I’m going to read that book twice before reviewing it. the first time will be my frenetic gotta-get-to-the-end pace, the second time will be so I can actually enjoy it.

some of the books reviewed here were free ARCs supplied by publishers/authors/other groups. Some of the books here I got from the library. the rest I *gasp!* actually paid for. I'll do my best to let you know what's what.
