I've sold a new Archonate novel, The Commons, to Rob Sawyer for his Robert J. Sawyer Books, an imprint of the large Canadian publisher Fitzhenry and Whiteside. It should be out in a small hardcover edition and a larger trade paperback run late this year. I wrote the novel over the past couple of years in episodes that have, mostly, appeared in The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction.

The Commons is my third novel sale so far this year; the other two are Template, another Archonate novel sold to PS Publishing in the UK, and an as yet untitled work based on the adventures of the Canadian X-Man, Wolverine, that I'm doing as a for-hire project for Pocket Books. I expect to turn it in by the end of next month. Both it and Template will be out in 2007.

Publication of The Commons has been pushed back to June of 2007. The last three episodes have yet to run in F&SF -- they will do so between now and January} -- and the publisher wants to let some time extend between their serial publication and the novel's release.

Here's the cover art for my Guth Bandar novel, The Commons, coming from Robert J. Sawyer Books next summer. It's taken from a larger painting, by the artist team of Cory and Catska Ench, that will be split to form the covers of the February and March issues of F&SF, when it runs the two-part novella that climaxes with the scene rendered in the painting.

Word from the publisher is that the book will appear in the fall, possibly around September.

We're now looking at October 15 as the official release date.

Robert J. Sawyer, who is publishing The Commons under his imprint at Fitzhenry & Whiteside, has blogged some interesting comments on the problem of insularity in latter-day sf. He also provides a case study in how to go about getting Publishers Weekly's attention.
