David Wingrove's CHUNG KUO – Update
Y’know, one thing I’ve learned about the publishing industry is that whatever timetable is agreed, provisionally or otherwise, you can usually assume that rescheduling will take place somewhere along the line. As it is with the ongoing progress relating to the republication of Dave Wingrove’s Chung Kuo epic by Atlantic Books. As mentioned before, David has written a prequel to the saga which itself will be published as a larger number of books, ie each volume of the original printing will equate to about 2 volumes in this new reprint.
As DW himself says:
“What you might (say), however, is that I am working – even now – on the reworking of the final books. I’ve re-structured THE MARRIAGE OF THE LIVING DARK and it will be coming out as books 15-18 of the sequence. I’ll be adding something like 300,000 words.”
My advice? – plan ahead, buy more bookshelves!
Additional Snippet – seems that the 1st volume is due to be published in September 2010 and in total there will be 19 volumes.
