HERE COMES HUNTER’S RUN
June 2, 2007
Circle September 3 on your calendars. That’s when HarperCollins will be publishing the British hardcover edition of my latest novel. A three-way collaboration with my good friends Gardner Dozois and Daniel Abraham, HUNTER’S RUN tells the tale of Ramon Espejo, a prospector searching for a big strike on a distant world who finds rather more than he bargained for… and along the way must wrestle with what it means to be human.
If that sounds a bit familiar, it should. Yes, HUNTER’S RUN is a novel length expansion of “Shadow Twin,” the novella that Gardner began in the 70s, I continued in the 80s, and Daniel completed in the 00s. For much of the past twenty years, I have been telling Gardner that it needed to be a novel. I said the same thing to Daniel when he came aboard. And what do you know? I was right all along…
(Well, I think so, anyway. Read the book, and you can judge for yourself).
An American hardback of HUNTER’S RUN is also in the works, with a stunning cover by Stephen Martiniere (Daniel Abraham has great cover karma). That edition will be released by HarperCollins US in January, 2008, but for those who can’t wait, copies of the British first edition can be secured from Amazon UK and other online bookshops.
