The Burning Page – cover reveal

Tor have just released the cover for book 3 of the Invisible Library series, The Burning Page. Here it is!


It’s absolutely fantastic. I’m delighted with it. Look for it on the shelves in December…

animation of the Carceri prints by Piranesi

And also, here’s a truly spectacular animation of Piranesi’s Carceri prints which a friend of mine found.

To quote the background information:

…one of the key elements of the exhibition Le Arti di Piranesi: architetto, incisore, antiquario, vedutista, designer (The Art of Piranesi: architect, engraver, antiquarian, vedutista, designer), a 12 minute animation of Piranesi’s Carceri series made by Gregoire Dupond at Factum Arte specifically for the exhibition. This series of 16 visionary images, originally etched by Piranesi when in his late 20’s, shows the workings of his imagination, merging his architectural ambitions with his obsessive interest in antiquity. Watching Gregoire Dupond’s animation is literally like entering Piranesi’s mind.

Imagine Vale and Irene walking through that.

Good news. Really good news.

Tor will be publishing Library books 4 and 5!


I can confirm that book 3, The Burning Page, will be out in December 2016 and the first new book (book 4) is scheduled for December the following year.

This is absolutely fantastic news for me to be able to share. Thanks to Tor, and to all the readers who’ve been buying the books!
