Peadar Ó Guilín publishing news

Way back in the day I reviewed Peadar Ó Guilín's debut novel, The Inferior, the first book in the Bone World Trilogy. It was an excellent read and one of the highlights of 2007. The second novel, The Deserter, was published in 2011.

Unfortunately, despite excellent reviews, the first two books in the series did not sell as well as expected. As a result, Random House have dropped plans to publish the concluding volume of the trilogy, The Volunteer (which seems a bit short-sighted in these days when so many people wait for a series to be fully published before reading it). Fortunately, the author will still be publishing the book as an ebook in 2014. Random House will also be publishing a new, stand alone dystopian novel from Ó Guilín, Eat the Drink, in May 2015.

I have no knowledge of this author, but it must be a hard blow for fans to not get the conclusion in normal book form. Hate reading e-books.
