I remember Chris Willrich's name from a couple of other posts in the past, but thanks to The Swords & Sorcery League - Facebook Page we now know of a Gaunt & Bone Novel coming out this September from Pyr books:


The book description seems intriguing, too:

"It's Brent Weeks meets China Mieville in this wildly imaginative fantasy debut featuring high action, elegant writing, and sword and sorcery with a Chinese flare.

Persimmon Gaunt and Imago Bone are a romantic couple and partners in crime. Persimmon is a poet from a well-to-do family, who found herself looking for adventure, while Imago is a thief in his ninth decade who is double-cursed, and his body has not aged in nearly seventy years. Together, their services and wanderlust have taken them into places better left unseen, and against odds best not spoken about. Now, they find themselves looking to get away, to the edge of the world, with Persimmon pregnant with their child, and the most feared duo of assassins hot on their trail. However, all is never what it seems, and a sordid adventure--complete with magic scrolls, gangs of thieves, and dragons both eastern and western--is at hand.

Jason M Waltz (worddancer) | 285 comments Awesome! Thanks for posting, I had missed this. I've enjoyed the Gaunt and Bone tales I've read in the past. Another good score by Lou and Pyr!
