I know what you mean, but I took it as a sign that it was well written. Anyway, considering the fact that he is already progressing well in the next novel, I don't mind that much...

I came across this new series seems interesting something similar to Butcher's new series the price is too high for me so I haven't bought it yet. Might buy if have nothing new to read in the next few weeks. The blurb reads like a series I would read.


https://www.amazon.com/Guns-Above-Si...e+Robyn+Bennis


In the tradition of Honor Harrington and the high-flying Temeraire series, Bennis’s THE GUNS ABOVE is an adventurous military fantasy debut about a nation's first female airship captain.

They say it’s not the fall that kills you.

For Josette Dupre, the Corps’ first female airship captain, it might just be a bullet in the back.

On top of patrolling the front lines, she must also contend with a crew who doubts her expertise, a new airship that is an untested deathtrap, and the foppish aristocrat Lord Bernat, a gambler and shameless flirt with the military know-how of a thimble. Bernat’s own secret assignment is to catalog her every moment of weakness and indecision.

So when the enemy makes an unprecedented move that could turn the tide of the war, can Josette deal with Bernat, rally her crew, and survive long enough to prove herself?

Thanks for the recommendation, the book looks interesting. But it is, as you said, a bit high-priced for what appears to be a first effort. It also has no paperback edition but has a hardback, also unusual for a first effort.

The lack of paperback would depend on the publication date of the hardcover. Back in the day, hardcover always preceded paperback by at least a few months, and this book just came out a week ago.

I'm not going to look up the scenario of the book just yet, however, because I have a ton of currently owned, and/or started series that I want to get through first, including a reread of Dresden.

Cool Interview with Jim Butcher - Phantastik-Couch

Quote:


Interview with Jim Butcher

„I was just writing dopey little wizard books.“

Phantastik-Couch.de: I’d like to start by asking you a little bit about yourself. Could you tell us a bit about you? Have you any profession besides writing? I heard something about you working formerly as a door-to-door salesman to pay the rent and a degree in English Literature?

Jim Butcher: I can’t think of any writers who begin their careers as a full-time author. Everyone has to work a day job before ...

Cool New York Times Best Selling author Jim Butcher talks about new book

New York Times Best Selling author Jim Butcher talks about new book

Quote:
New York Times Best Selling author, Jim Butcher joined Midday on Thursday.

The fantasy author is in town for Salt Lake Comic Con.

Butcher has a new book entitled the Aeronaut's Windlass coming out on September 29th

He is also known for his fantasy series The Dresden Files and Codex Alera.

The Aeronaut’s Windlass is the first book in the upcoming Steampunk series, The Cinder Spires.

Readers will be entertained with airships, crazy sorcerers, privateers, warrior monks, and intelligent cats.

The story follows a time when an ancient evil has reawakened, and the entire world is plunged into a sinister mist, filled with terrible creatures.
