Good news for The Hammer and Blade fans, Angry Robot Books has signed author Paul S. Kemp for a third Egil and Nix novel! Here’s the press release.

Angry Robot is delighted to announce that, due to the immense popularity of Paul S. Kemp‘s The Hammer and the Blade – the first in his Tales of Egil and Nix series of sword and sorcery fantasy adventure novels – we have signed Paul up to write a third book starring our favourite tomb robbers.

Tentatively titled A Conversation in Blood, the book is scheduled for Summer 2014. To sate readers’ appetites for more great sword and sorcery action, the second in the series,A Discourse in Steel, will be published in June of next year.

Find out more about Paul S. Kemp, who also writes for the Star Wars and Forgotten Realmsuniverses, at his website: www.paulskemp.com and follow him on Twitter @PaulSKemp.

Paul S. Kemp: “I don’t know about you, but my pink parts are all tingly! Wait, is that too much information? Uh, sorry. So, anyway, continuing my relationship with the metallic overlords? Check. Writing more stories in the sword and sorcery sub-genre I love? Double check. The long and short of it? I’m smiling. Hugely. I’ve had so much fun writing about Egil and Nix, and have had such positive feedback from readers who’ve had a blast, too, that I’m just delighted to have the opportunity to write more of their adventures. Huzzah!”

Angry Robot Editor Lee Harris added: “The Hammer and the Blade has proven to be one of our most popular titles of 2012, so it was an easy decision to ask Paul to write more in that world. Sword and Sorcery is alive and well and living in Paul S Kemp’s brilliant Tales of Egil and Nixseries.”

The third book in the Tales of Egil and Nix is tentatively titled A Conversation in Blood and slated for a Summer 2014 release. The second novel in the series, A Discourse in Steel, is now scheduled for a June 2013 release.
