A Flight of Sorrows Revealed

Tower of the Hand: A Flight of Sorrows is coming out a month from today, and to celebrate, we’re letting you all in on a little secret: the book’s complete lineup (which, we’re delighted to finally share, includes a few more friendly faces from the Ice and Fire community).

Here we go:

    Foreword – Phil Bicking, editor-in-chief of WinterIsComing.net
    And Now It Begins…

    Introduction – Marc N. Kleinhenz, editor
    All along the Watchtower

    Afterword – Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, co-author of InnattheCrossroads.com and A Feast of Ice and Fire
    Just Desserts

    Appendix I: What’s a Game of Thrones without the Tower of the Hand?
    Appendix II: The Creaking Door of House Manwoody

As you can see, it’s a packed house, and we’re excited to squeeze you into the nerdfest, as well.

(Note: the two appendices are previously published material – one at Corona’s Coming Attractions, the other at Tower of the Hand itself – that interviews the respective braintrusts behind TOTH and A Podcast of Ice and Fire. It’s collected here to heighten the reader’s enjoyment of these two wacky-but-popular ASOIAF staples.)

A Flight of Sorrows goes on sale on October 13th, exclusively at Amazon, for $5.99.

    It’ll most certainly be available via Amazon on October 13th. We’re attempting to get a pre-order page up as soon as possible, but considering that my first boy was born yesterday, things are a bit chaotic right now. =)
