Next Week: Edward Cox Signing at Forbidden Planet

CoxE-R2-CathedralOfKnownThings-BlogOn Thursday, October 8th, Forbidden Planet in London will host Edward Cox for a signing. This is your chance to get your hands on THE CATHEDRAL OF KNOWN THINGS, his second novel, before its official release on October 15th. Published by Gollancz, it is the sequel to the critically-acclaimed THE RELIC GUILD. Here’s the synopsis…

In the end, all things are known. Return to the world of THE RELIC GUILD with this remarkable fantasy novel

Divided, hunted and short on resources, the surviving members of the Relic Guild are in real trouble. Their old enemy, the Genii, and their resurrected master have infiltrated Labrys Town and taken over the police force.

So the Relic Guild must flee their home, and set off on a dangerous journey across the worlds of the Aelfir. One that will lead them to a weapon which might destroy the Genii. Or the whole universe…

And forty years before all this, the war which led to the fall of the Genii continues. And what happens to the Relic Guild during that conflict will change the course of their desperate flight.

If you’d like to try out the world, Cox has written two, free short stories available in audio: HEMLOCK and CHAMPION OF DEAD TIME.

THE RELIC GUILD was a fast and pleasurable read… a magical creation and a true feat of imagination which I’m looking forward to exploring more… A promising debut…’ — Upcoming4Me

‘Part science fantasy, part steampunk thriller, part horror novel… THE RELIC GUILD reads in places like a vividly-described high fantasy merged with Victorian penny dreadful ‘appening… a mighty fine first novel…’ — Interzone
