Two Anniversary Editions on the way for RIVERS OF LONDON!

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Ben Aaronovitch‘s first Peter Grant novel, RIVERS OF LONDON. The critically-acclaimed and best-selling series is now up to its eighth novel, third novella, and eight comic series — and its popularity only continues to grow! The series as a whole has sold more than two million copies worldwide, and has been translated into 14 languages. (You can find many of the covers for these worldwide editions on his author page.)

To support this milestone achievement, Gollancz will be reaching out to fans, librarians, booksellers and many more to create an unmissable celebration of one of the most beloved series of recent times. The range of activities will span online and in the real world, with many exciting moments and content that fans of the series will not want to miss. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks ahead.

Not only this, as was reported today by The Bookseller, there are two special anniversary editions on the way! Here’s a description of what fans can expect…

The tenth anniversary special edition of RIVERS OF LONDON will be a Demy Hardback featuring new artwork, specially commissioned endpapers, and an introduction by the author. This edition is perfect for longstanding fans and newcomers alike and will be published this August, the month of the tenth anniversary of the paperback edition of RIVERS OF LONDON. Alongside this, a Deluxe tenth anniversary limited edition of RIVERS OF LONDON will also be published in a very exclusive slipcased edition featuring sprayed edges, new artwork and an original RIVERS OF LONDON map.

Here’s what Ben had to say about reaching this incredible milestone:

My expectations for Rivers of London were modest making its surprise success all the more gratifying when it came. I’m amazed both that we are already at the tenth anniversary and that so many readers have gone out of their way to tell me how much they enjoy the books. I’m extremely grateful to John Berlyne my agent, and to all the people at Orion, Gollancz and my foreign publishers past and present for their hard work and support that made this series so successful. Not to mention the brilliant work by Kobna Holdbrook-Smith in reading the audio books. I should also mention the enthusiastic support I’ve had from booksellers and librarians across the country and beyond. But I am most grateful for all the thousands of readers who shelled out their own hard-earned cash to buy the books – the most important people of all.’

Cover & Details: Anniversary Edition of Brandon Sanderson’s ELANTRIS


This year, Gollancz will publish a tenth anniversary edition of Brandon Sanderson‘s critically-acclaimed and fan-favourite debut, ELANTRIS! Due to hit shelves on September 8th, 2016, here’s the synopsis…

Elantris was built on magic and it thrived. But then the magic began to fade and Elantris began to rot. And now its shattered citizens face domination by a powerful Imperium motivated by dogged religious views. Can a young Princess unite the people of Elantris, rediscover the lost magic and lead a rebellion against the imperial zealots?

This is the ‘definitive’ edition of the novel, with more than 10,000 extra words.

Gollancz has published a whole host of Sanderson’s novels, including the Mistborn and Stormlight Archive epic fantasy series, the Reckoners super-hero dystopia series, and stand-alone novel WARBREAKER. As we reported a couple of weeks ago, Gollancz are also due to publish an anniversary, collector’s edition of Brandon’s first Mistborn novel, THE FINAL EMPIRE, on September 15th, 2016.

Cover & Details: THE FINAL EMPIRE Anniversary Edition


Last week, Gollancz unveiled four new Anniversary Editions. One of which (above) is for Brandon Sanderson‘s best-selling, critically-acclaimed first Mistborn novel, THE FINAL EMPIRE. Due to be published on September 15th, 2016, here’s the synopsis…

A beautiful, collectible new hardback edition of one of the greatest fantasy novels of the past decade which revolves around a simple question: What if the Dark Lord won?

Brandon Sanderson’s epic fantasy trilogy overturns the expectations of readers and then goes on to tell the epic story of evil overturned in a richly imagined world.

A thousand years ago evil came to the land and has ruled with an iron hand ever since. The sun shines fitfully under clouds of ash that float down endlessly from the constant eruption of volcanoes. A dark lord rules through the aristocratic families and ordinary folk are condemned to lives in servitude, sold as goods, labouring in the ash fields.

But now a troublemaker has arrived and there is rumour of revolt. A revolt that depends on criminal that no-one can trust and a young girl who must master Allomancy — the magic that lies in all metals.

Gollancz has published all six of the Mistborn novels (to date), as well as a multitude of Sanderson’s other series and stand-alone novels, including the epic fantasy Stormlight Archive series, the Reckoners super-hero dystopia series, and ELANTRIS, his debut.
