I just finished The Republic of Thieves and am desperate for the next installment of the Gentleman Bastard series. These books are insanely smart, absurdly funny, and have so many plot twists and HOLY SHIT moments that they're basically adrenaline in novel form.

Let's hope it takes less than six years. That is all I need to be happy.

June 2013? Somehow I think that pretty unlikely. The publishers must be sadists, getting the reader's hopes up and then smashing them, all the while laughing gleefully.
But I guess it's my fault, too. Whenever I think of Scott Lynch's next novel I get all giddy and excited. Even though I know that it will probably take Scott Lynch a long time to finish this book (and book three as well), all I can think about is this:

WAAAAAAAAAAAH I'M SO EXCITED FOR THE THORN OF EMBERLAIN! I LOVE YOU, LOCKE!

Really hope this one has more schemes & thieving... and less girls. Or at least less troubled and illogical girls.
Book 3 was okay, but I really hope 4 picks up the pace again.

Well no mention of release date anywhere on the internet...
Man, a bit frustrated...
I mean, at least we should have something to look forward to... But nothing...

The Thorn of Emberlain is missing from the Gollancz January-July 2015 catalogue.

A mid-to-late 2015 release date seems more likely.
