Second MALAZAN prequel novel title teased

In an interview with The Critical Dragon, Ian Cameron Esslemont has announced the working title for his second Malazan prequel novel.

The first book in the Path to Ascendancy series, Dancer's Lament, came out last month to a positive critical response. The second book, which I suspect we will see next year, has the current working title Deadhouse Landing, although the publishers have yet to approve it.

The title recalls the title of the second novel in Steven Erikson's Malazan Book of the Fallen sequence, Deadhouse Gates (one of the most critically-lauded books in the series). The title hints that the second book in the series will explore Kellanved and Dancer's time in the Deadhouse of Malaz City.

Esslemont also confirms that he is currently contracted for three books in the Path to Ascendancy series, but it could go on for longer if the first three books are successful.
