I'm very pleased to announce that after much hard work on the part of virtually everyone at Prometheus, the Pyr Spring/Summer 2006 catalog is now complete, at the printers, and also available now as a pdf download here.
This time out, we have such titles as the U.S. debut of Ian McDonald's Hugo-nominated masterpiece, River of Gods, (with a gorgeous new cover from Stephan Martiniere), the final installment in John Meaney's acclaimed Nulapeiron sequence, the first of a new fantasy quartet from Sean Williams which has already won both the Ditmar and the Aurealis Awards in his native Australia (the first fantasy novel ever to do so), and an Edgar Rice Burroughs-style "planetary romance" from Chris Roberson.
Also upcoming is the next "Structure" book from Martin Sketchley, a short story collection from Mike Resnick, and debut novels from authors David Louis Edelman and Joel Shepherd, both the first novels of planned series.
In addition to the aforementioned cover by artist Stephan Martiniere, we're happy to have worked this season with such talented illustrators as Jim Burns, Greg Bridges, Dave Seeley, Jon Foster, and designer Dave Stevenson.
We've also accumulated a 16 book backlist by this point, which means that our catalog is rapidly becoming substantial and getting some physical heft to it. Paging through all the books, I still can't shake the feeling that all this started up only yesterday. Where on earth does the time go?
