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.

Also, there are rumors for a "firm"(that's a tricky term when speaking of Scott Lynch) release date of the book(don't trust the July publication date posted here in GR; it's all bullocks, but read more details below):

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

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.

I swear it was July five seconds ago. 17th September. Damn you, Lynch.

Why does this cover sucks? The first one was so beautiful...*cries*

I NEED THIS BOOK IN MY LIFE
Caro
The release date has my approval, the cover does not. Who are those armored goons? And will we witness Locke making fun of them?

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

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

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