Ian Cameron Esslemont has handed in the manuscript for his third Malazan novel, Stonewielder. The book is currently planned for publication in late 2010.
The third novel takes place shortly after the events of Return of the Crimson Guard and will be set on the oft-mentioned, rarely-seen continent of Korel to the south of Malaz Island, and will partially involve the enigmatic Stormriders. Malazanempire.com will host an extract of the novel closer to the time.
2010 will also hopefully see the publication of Steven Erikson's tenth and final-in-this-story-arc Malazan novel, The Crippled God, although he is still writing it at the moment.
