Stirling news

Last month I wrote a brief review of S M Stirling's DtF trilogy (Dies the Fire, The Protector's War and A Meeting at Corvallis). Fans of the series will no doubt be pleased to hear that he has already started on a follow-on trilogy (The Sunrise Lands, The Scourge of God and The Sword of the Lady) - and that the first two chapters of The Sunrise Lands are now available at his website.

The action starts on 30th October, CY22 (CE 2020), twelve years after the end of A Meeting at Corvallis, as a visitor from the distant Free Republic of Richland - in what used to be known as Wisconsin - arrives in the Mackenzie town of Sutterdown.

Two appendices have also been posted, giving additional information on post-Change Britain and Oregon.

The book will probably be published in the fall of 2007. In the meantime, assuming Stirling continues IAW previous practise, you can expect six to eight more chapters to be posted, at roughly monthly intervals.
