Nathan Washor Hey Luke! *Finally* got around to reading Grim Company after having loved the sneak peak online. Really loved it! Thanks for the journey and am really looking forward to "Sword of the North". Such a cool premise (the dead gods and all that) and well executed in a not your typical fantasy way, while still feeling typical fantasy enough to be comfortable.

Felix Hi Luke,
Thanks for adding me to your friends list. I can't wait to read your "The Grim Company" book when it reaches across the pond.

Stay Frosty.
Felix

L Dear Luke,
Thank you so much for being my friend here on Goodreads, which is an honor and delight! I thoroughly enjoyed reading "The Grim Company" book 1 and look forward to reading more of your work.
Kind Regards

Luke Scull Hi Stefan,

The North American edition will be released in September by Ace-Roc. You can still get the UK edition from amazon.co.uk or book depository (latter has free posting).

Cheers,

Luke


Stefan Hi Luke,

I'm super exciting about reading 'The Grim Company' after seeing the synopsis! Definitely sounds like the sort of fantasy I enjoy.

As a Canadian fan of all things sci-fi/fantasy, are there are any plans for a full North American release soon?

Cheers,

Stefan


Neveen Thanks for accepting my friend request.
I am looking forward to read your novel.
