The Prisoner of Limnos now up!

...almost.

Penric & Desdemona novella #6 is now up at iBooks and Nook.

iBooks:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/the-...

B&N:

https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/the-...

Amazon's Kindle version should surface within the next day, and I'll add the link here when it does. At the present hour, their bots are still trying to direct me to "The Prisoner of Lemons", which as near as I can tell does not actually exist. Though it should.

(slightly later) Aha, here it is on Kindle:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076X2TNRM/...


The novella topped out at 44,950 words, not including the title page.




(Note: the only publicity these e-novellas get are these few blog posts, so readers mentioning their existence out and about on the net (and elsewhere) are quite important and much appreciated. Amazon always gets plenty of reviews, so consider other appropriate spaces as well.)

Néna Rawdah Eek, this is terrible! I can't read a book until I finish this job I'm on! (So excited to reconnect with Pen and Des and Nikys.)

Ed Bear As with Penric's Fox, I haven't yet had time to read the story.
I do, however, look forward to it. Here are the results of my
"ancillary checks." Thank you for the story.

[Insert] items in square brackets,
[/delete] them if the item is marked with a slash,
and [/thees][these] are a replacement.

Angle brackets surround spelled-out characters like
.

The "|" character is OR as in this | that

{This is a note to the recipient which is not intended to be
part of the final text.}
------------------------------------------------------------
Pen suspected Surakos had been a lot more blunt
[/that][than] that. “We actually hope to borrow his
knowledge, as neither Madame Khatai nor I have even been to
Limnos, and he has. Everything has to start with
understanding both the physical layout and the human
defenses. The Order’s house cannot be as impenetrable as a
prison or a fortress, if it hosts visitors and pilgrims. Not
to mention the need for transporting food and supplies in
and out for its inhabitants—how many?”

Penric set down his case and satchel, passed the fold of his
dress’s draperies over his coiled black hair, and leaned
against the garden wall. Nikys did the same. At length, she
rested her head back upon the day-warmed stone and sighed,
“That may be the most forlorn hope I have ever witnessed.[”]

“Yes,” Nikys admitted. “Although after Adelis was blinded, I
had quite different reasons to be grateful I was there.[”]

Kosigan That was quick. Purchased from Amazon UK immediately. I look forward to having the time to read it - probably next week's lunch breaks taken care of.

...and had you checked your Goodreads e-mail, we might have nailed those last week.

Give it a week to see what else is found, and I'll see if my e-helpers have the endurance for corrections.

DebL Next up on my reading list! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Errata: In iBooks, the title is shown as "The Prisoner of Limnos" in quotes. The others in the Penric series have no quotes around the titles.

malnpudl Whee! Happy news! Thank you for brightening my day! I've bought the Kindle version and will now happily anticipate the audiobook.

Jody Is there a map of the countries Pen lives in/visits? Map nerd here . . . wondering where they are in relation to Chalion.

None from me, anyway, apart from the pencil sketches in my notes.

Extending European geography, which I am not obliged to do with any rigor whatsoever, and in broad outline: Switzerland, Germany, a truncated sort of Italy-ish, and a peninsula which is sort of Greece and Italy munged together, well west of the Ibran peninsula. Turned upside down, but not right to left, and placed in the southern hemisphere of its world.

malnpudl Thank you, Lois! I'm not the person who asked for this, but my visual brain appreciates it enormously.
