Amazon now has the full listing up for the next Tale of Egil and Nix, A CONVERSATION IN BLOOD.  As ever, I greatly appreciate pre-orders.  Let me know if you do, so I can send you my personal thanks.  It means a lot.

In any event, from the jacket:

final art conversationEgil and Nix, the hard-fighting, harder-drinking fortune hunters of The Hammer and the Bladeand A Discourse in Steel, are back to test their mettle and tempt fickle fate.
Fantasy fiction has long welcomed adventurous rogues: Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser, George R. R. Martin’s Dunk and Egg, and Scott Lynch’s Locke Lamora and Jean Tannen have all made their mark. In his Egil & Nix series, New York Times bestselling author Paul S. Kemp introduces a daring new duo to the ranks of fantasy fame—or is it infamy?
Nix is a nimble thief with just enough knowledge of magic to get into serious trouble. Egil is the only priest of a discredited god. Together, they seek riches and renown, but somehow it is always misadventure and mayhem that find them—even in the dive bar they call home. And their luck has yet to change.
All Nix wants to do is cheer Egil up after a bout of heartbreak. And, of course, strike it so rich that they need never worry about their combined bar bill. But when the light-fingered scoundrel plunders a tomb and snatches mysterious golden plates covered in runes, the treasure brings terrifying trouble. Pursued by an abomination full of ravenous hunger and unquenchable wrath, Egil and Nix find all they hold dear—including their beloved tavern—in dire peril. To say nothing of the world itself.
Praise for Paul S. Kemp’s thrilling Egil & Nix novels
“Most heroes work up to killing demons. Egil and Nix start there and pick up the pace.”—Elaine Cunningham, author of Honor Among Thieves
“Kemp delivers sword and sorcery at its rollicking best, after the fashion of Fritz Leiber’s Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.”—Library Journal
“Egil and Nix might not be the safest guys to go adventuring with, but they’re sure good company.”—Ed Greenwood, bestselling creator of Forgotten Realms

“Did I mention how much fun Egil and Nix are? So. Much. Damn. Fun.”—Tor.com

    • Brian, yes, indeed. I’m busy outlining the fourth right now (it’s under contract with Del Rey) and I hope to write many more. 🙂

  1. Awesome let me preorder now… wait, a hardcover? Damn. Now I have to decide if I get a hardcover to through off the way my shelf looks beside the other 2 or get the ebook and not be able to see the book on the shelf. This is a real first world problem I have here.

  2. I have had the ebook preorderd since January 11. I have been waiting for this book for a while lol.

  3. Certainly looking forward to the next Egil and Nix novel. However, I was introduced to your writing through the Forgotten Realms, and had kind of hoped that The Godborn (also very good) would be the starting point for a new series. Is there any hope for that?

    • The odds of more Realms novels from me are low. In that sense, THE GODBORN is the end of a long running series (the many novels of Erevis Cale) than it is a beginning If that every changes, you can bet I’ll announce it to the heavens. Meanwhile, if you dug Cale and Riven, you’ll also dig Egil and Nix. 🙂

  4. That is some sad news ( yeah, first world…) Is there anything your fans can do to help? The Realms will be sorely lacking without you.

  5. Pre-ordered through bookdepository.

    This sure was a long wait but I’m happy to get more Egil and Nix very soon.

    Any idea if we’ll have a similar wait for the 4th book?

  6. Love this series. Adventurous and fun reads, both of them. Looking forward to your next installment. The wails of anguish when I finished the last and saw how long till the next frightened 2 dachshunds.
