Hugo and Nebula Award-Winning Science Fiction Writer

My next novel comes out one year from today

UPDATE: Actually, my next novel is coming out even sooner! In part to take advantage of some promotional opportunties that presented themselves, my US and Canadian publishers have moved the publication date up five weeks. The new official publication date for my next novel is TUESDAY, MARCH 1, 2016.

The official publication date for my next novel — my twenty-third — is Tuesday, April 5, 2016, precisely one year from today.

I’d been pretty reliably a book-a-year writer since my first novel came out in 1990, but my next book will be released three years after my most-recent one, Red Planet Blues.

I took time off leading up to and following the death of my younger brother Alan Sawyer, an Emmy Award-winning multimedia producer, who died from lung cancer in June 2013. My apologies to my readers, and my sincere thanks for your patience.

My American publisher, Ace, is still working on the cover, but when it is done, I’ll reveal the cover, the dust-jacket description, and the final title here.

  2. Marked it on the calendar!

  3. Please — oh, please: is there any way an earnest fan (and Top Thousand Amazon reviewer) can receive an advance copy?
