And, in news I've rather happy about, Melanie Rawn has announced a publication date for The Diviner: June 2011. Actually, she announced it a month ago, and there's another post on her message board saying August 2011, but that Rawn is actually talking publication dates is an EXCELLENT sign.
Don't know what in the world I'm talking about? Have you heard of The Golden Key, written by Rawn, Jennifer Roberson, and Kate Elliott, and published back in the 90's? I would point you to my blog post covering the book, but it's been fifteen years since I read it. Maybe longer. Here's a review from Catherine Asaro from back in 1997.
The Golden Key was fantastic, people. After it was published there was talk about sequels and prequels that would be individually written by the three co-authors. The first one, the one that sets the stage and gives the other authors what they need to do their work was Melanie Rawn's The Diviner. Without it, Roberson and Elliott can't continue.
We're getting The Diviner next year!!!!!!
It's time for a re-read of The Golden Key, I think.
Oh, and there's artwork.
