A bit early you might think. Well I'm sure Scott thinks so at least!!!!

Still the clock needs put in place before it can start ticking. Can you hear it ticking Scott?

TTT is fantastic btw and I can't wait until more people get a hold of their copies to allow for some real discussion (plus when I get a hold of the hardocver Overlook edition in another month, I'll probably do a re-read).

Anyway, now we have a thread for Scott to keep us updated on the status etc. Now don't forget to do that Scott! view post

I've been cooling my heels for the past couple of weeks, waiting for criticisms of the first draft of Neuropath to trickle in - or rumble in, as the case may be! I've been working at AE in the interim, but the only thing I have completed is the prologue. The rest is all snippets and scenes - which is the way I write, filling things in nonlinearly.

I'm gone for the remainder of December, but when I return, I plan to take January to cook up a final draft of NP, then settle in for long, concentrated write. I'm very excited about AE - which is actually a problem, because I'm very excited about NP as well, and I'm one of those people who can literally only do ONE thing at a time.

The contract with Orbit UK has already been agreed upon, and the contracts with Penguin and Overlook will probably be wrapped up soon. The delivery date I'm giving is January 07, which should put the pub date somewhere late spring, early summer. view post

Sounds like fun.

I couldn't wait for Thousandfold Thought any longer, so I went to eBay to bid for an Advanced Reader Copy. I found one, spent the afternoon pondering over it, and decided to bid on it.

Unfortunately for me, the one I was eyeing up was already snatched up by someone else and bought. The only one left is only orderable to the United States.

I bet God's having a blast teasing me. view post

I need to start doing book reviews so I can start reading things early <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->
BTW Scott any plans for a book tour after TTT comes out by any chance? view post

That was me above. view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 19 December 2005 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Twayleph, Auditor

It's going to be a sci-fi thriller situated in the near future. From what Scott has told us, it's probably going to contain some very horrifying reflections on the possibilities of new technologies such as neuro-imaging. view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 19 December 2005 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Nauticus, Auditor

I'm extremely excited about Neuropath. Sounds very psychological... but I'm curious how Scott'll combine such a psychological theme with, well, a plot <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) --> view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 20 December 2005 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Twayleph, Auditor

So am I, especially since it's going to be a thriller and probably a smaller tome than his previous novels...I'm not skeptical at all, though, just curious too <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post

I know I'm flying out to Calgary and to Vancouver, but there seems to be some confusion as to when. As per usual, I'll likely only have hard details come the eleventh hour.

Nothing from Overlook about American dates yet. I'm hoping they at least fly me down to NYC. view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 31 December 2005 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Entropic_existence, Moderator

Yea, hoping you would be doing some signings in Toronto since it is so close by and all. <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post

I know I'll be at Bakka Books for a launch in the very near future. The problem is that I went on holiday earlier in December, and my Penguin publicist was on holiday when I got back. All I know is that I got dates lined up, lots and lots of dates. I'll find out specifics tomorrow, I assume.

Happy New Year all! view post

Scott, I was wondering, since you found out in PoN that you're a &quot;one and half year per book&quot; author is that a realistic date for Aspect Emperor? Wouldn't that mean that you now have to finish the first book in 10 months time?

Have you continued writing AE or are you still working on Neuropath? view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 15 March 2006 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Cu'jara Cinmoi, Author of Prince of Nothing

Never fear, Mith! I've been working on AE all this time, mostly hammering out scenes and details. Note that the dates I gave correspond exactly with the 18 month schedule. In my original Penguin contract, the time from inception to publication was a year.

You do know you're using the wrong sports analogy for the publishing world, and that's why you end up getting so bummed by the shifting schedule. It's not like football, where the games over when you run out the clock. It's more like baseball, were the game itself determines the time spent. Although there are a number of exceptions, some notorious, I think this actually works best for the readers in the end. Don't you think?

The more scheduling accountability you impose on the writing process, the more you risk distorting it, it seems to me. view post

Hey Scottonimous,

Any updates on AE?

Cheers,

Mith <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post

Does Scott exist anymore? view post

In our hearts maybe, as for actually exists noone knows. view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 15 November 2006 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Mithfânion, Didact

An update of any sort would be nice, yes, to say the very least <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 15 November 2006 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Warrior-Poet, Moderator

I think anything from Scott would be nice right about now. view post

Yes I am having Scott Bakker withdrawls too. <!-- s:cry: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cry.gif" alt=":cry:" title="Crying or Very sad" /><!-- s:cry: --> view post

Ive already gone to group therapy. view post

That is what I need to do group therapy. view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 19 November 2006 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Nauticus, Auditor

I can see it now.

I'll be sitting in a chair at a psychiatrist's office, explaining my obsession with Scott Bakker, and his novels. The doctor will explain that 'Scott Bakker' is just a figmint of my imagination, and no such novels ever existed. view post

Lol view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 19 November 2006 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Entropic_existence, Moderator

I'm sure we'll hear back from Scott one of these days <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 22 November 2006 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Phil, Candidate

I hope so!

Hi all, first post here... I was chatting about Bakker V Erikson (I think they're both great) on another board a few days ago, so I was roused to come check out this forum for AE news.

Does anyone have a reasonable guess as to when AE comes out? Some say late 2007, some say May 2008... anything been confirmed?

Is it true that the next series is only two books, and the same for the third series (which I am predicting will be called The No-God, and if he's announced the actual title since I came up with that prediction and that's not it, then he's wrong <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->)?

Thanks to all for the info. Nice forum you've got here - the books are quite a handful on a first read, so I'm planning on doing a re-read soon <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) -->

Phil

PS - is there any way to get the other forum styles to work? This grey on black is killing me. view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 22 November 2006 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Harrol, Moderator

Hello Phil and welcome. I do not know a hard date for AE. I believe it will be 18 months from when TTT came out. By the way are you from the ASOIF board? Someone else will be along that knows more details than I and they can give you better info. view post


Aspect-Emperor status posted 22 November 2006 in Author Q &amp; AAspect-Emperor status by Phil, Candidate

No, I'm not from that board. I'm from Manchester <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

Seriously though, I've not read any of Martin's series yet, I'm waiting for him to finish it. Too many unfinished series on my bookshelves already. view post
