Hi Grimdark Community,
In August 2021, Mark Lawrence, his publisher Ace Books, and Grim Oak Press will celebrate the 10th anniversary of the publication of Prince of Thorns, one of the foundational books for sub-genre grimdark. It helped change how we view fantasy. It has over 100,000 ratings on Goodreads, and it has thousands of reviews. Prince of Thorns is also one of those books that bestselling Shannara author Terry Brooks told me to read. And as usual, Terry was right. I loved it.
How are we celebrating this major anniversary? With special double-signed limited editions, featuring full-color artwork by fan-favorite artist Jason Chan. There are two editions:
Don't forget to pre-order the limited edition slipcase on the same receipt to save on shipping. You can put that in your cart now in preparation. And one more note: Given the erratic behavior of the USPS at this time, we cannot be responsible for copies shipped via Media Mail. We urge you to choose Priority Mail, which we are comfortable standing behind.
Working with Mark on these volumes has already been fun. Update: The Lettered Edition sold out in a minute. You can still order the Limited Edition and its slipcase though.
Good luck! And May the Fourth be with you!
