Michael Scott Rohan – signed copies

Michael Scott Rohan is the author of 15+ novels, mainly written in the 1980s & 90s, of which the best known are the Winter of the World novels. Sadly, they’ve all been out of print for years.
However, the first one, The Anvil of Ice, has now been issued in Orion’s Fantasy Masterworks series in paperbacK and the author has agreed to sign copies of it for me.
The date, the location or a brief greeting can also be added on request.

It’s a ‘B’ format £9.99 paperback and postage within the UK should be £1.51, making £11.50 in total.
Prices to elsewhere on application.

Let me know at enquiries@transreal.co.uk if you’re interested and I can issue a PayPal Invoice if it’s not convenient to collect your copy.

____

The chronicles of The Winter of the World echo down the ages in half-remembered myth and song – tales of mysterious powers of the Mastersmiths, of the forging of great weapons, of the subterranean kingdoms of the duergar, of Gods who walked abroad, and of the Powers that struggled endlessly for dominion. In the Northlands, beleaguered by the ever-encroaching Ice and the marauding Ekwesh, a young cowherd, saved from the raiders by the mysterious Mastersmith, discovers in himself an uncanny power to shape metal – but it is a power that may easily be turned to evil ends, and on a dreadful night he flees his new home, and embarks on the quest to find both his own destiny, and a weapon that will let him stand against the Power of the Ice. His wanderings will bring him great friends but earn him greater enemies, and eventually they will transform him from lowly cowherd to a mastersmith fit to stand with the greatest of all men.

A Darker Shade of Magic

Most people only know one London; but what if there were several? Kell is one of the last Travelers – magicians with a rare ability to travel between parallel Londons. There’s Grey London, dirty and crowded and without magic, home to the mad king George III. There’s Red London, where life and magic are revered.

Then, White London, ruled by whoever has murdered their way to the throne. But once upon a time, there was Black London…

End of the Year!

Another year almost over!

I’ll be closing at 15.00 this afternoon, which is maybe a little early compared to previous years but I have other commitments to attend to, I’m afraid. I usually aim at three o’clock but then overshoot a bit! This year I have to be on time.
Anyway, hope you have a fun time and a great new year.

I’ll be open again at 10.00 on Saturday the 3rd January 2015.

The Causal Angel – Hannu Rajaniemi

Contrary to what I understood, Hannu will be able to sign copies of his new book, The Causal Angel, for me.

The book itself is £20.00 and mailing prices will be as for Charlie’s recent Laundry novel, The Rhesus Chart. i.e. within the UK it’ll be £22.80

Europe, £20 + £6.60

World, £20.00 + £10.15

Let me know how you’d like it signed and which postage rate applies and I’ll send a PayPal Invoice.

____

“With his infectious love of storytelling in all its forms, his rich characterisation and his unrivalled grasp of thrillingly bizarre cutting-edge science, Hannu Rajaniemi has swiftly set a new benchmark for SF in the 21st century. And now with his third novel he completes the tale of his gentleman rogue, the many lives and minds of Jean de Flambeur. Influenced as much by the fin de siecle novels of Maurice leBlanc as he is by the greats of SF, Rajaniemi weaves intricate, warm capers through dazzling science, extraordinary visions of wild future and deep conjecture on the nature of reality and story.

And now we find out what will happen to Jean, his employer Miele, the independently minded ship Perhonnen and the rest of a fractured and diverse humanity flung through the solar system.”
