Essay Example: Del Rey Does The Sword Woman and Other Historical Adventures

It looks like you can already pre-order The Sword Woman and Other Historical Adventures. I posted about this upcoming book last June before an artist was announced and the name was changed.  Now an artist has been selected – John Watkiss.

The book is listed over at, with a publication date of January 25, 2011. The great thing about is if they drop the price of an item before it ships, you are only charged for the lower price. Right now The Sword Woman is listed at full retail ($18), but soon they’ll discount it to $12 or $13.

After this volume is released, I hope Cormac Mac Art and Other Celtic/Northern Adventures will not be too far behind.  A little birdie told me Dutch artist Paul Bonner has been approached about doing the illustrations for that collection.
