Josiah Bancroft's BOOKS OF BABEL series picked up by Orbit Books

Orbit Books have picked up the rights to Josiah Bancroft's excellent Books of Babel fantasy series.

The series has so far been self-published and consists of four volumes. Senlin Ascends (2013) and Arm of the Sphinx (2015) are already out and The Hod King was due to follow later this year, with a final volume in 2019.

This new publishing deal means a change in plans. Orbit will be reissuing Senlin Ascends on 25 January 2018, followed by Arm of the Sphinx on 12 April 2018. The Hod King will likely now be delayed until late 2018, with a shorter wait for the final book (hopefully) the year after.

Excellent news for Josiah, although it is disappointing to have to wait longer for the continuation and conclusion of the series.

Fully concur re the quality, novelty and imagination of the first two books. I read about it here and bought accordingly so hats off for raising the profile of some excellent books.
