Attention Book Collectors!

Mighter Than the Sword by K.J. Parker has just been listed for pre-order

An Imperial legate is called in to see his aunt, who just happens to be the empress running the civilized world while her husband's in his sick bed.  After some chastisement, she dispatches her nephew to take care of the dreaded Land and Sea Raiders, pirates who've been attacking the realm's monasteries.

So begins a possibly doomed tour of banished relatives and uppity royals put in charge of monasteries like Cort Doce and Cort Maleston, to name a few.  While attempting to discover the truth of what the pirates might be after, the legate visits great libraries and halls in each varied locale and conducts a romance of which he knows-but doesn't care-his aunt will not approve.  With enough wit and derring-do (and luck), the narrator might just make it through his mission alive...or will he?

There are 1000 signed hardcover copies to be published in June.  The awesome dust jacket artwork belongs to Victor Chong.  Priced at $40, this is an affordable addition to your library!
