R. Scott Bakker posted an update about the editing of the last novel of the Second Apocalypse series and second trilogy, The Aspect Emperor, titled The Unholy Consult. Sadly for avid readers waiting patiently for the novel :
I’ve received feedback from several readers now, but nothing officially editorial. I’m in the process of cleaning up the issues emerging from the feedback I’ve received now.
Hopefully, we may read more from the world of history of Earwa with a short story Bakker wrote called The Knife of Many Hands that will be published in the Grimdark Magazine in a near future (split into two parts). We don't know if that future will be before the final opus but it looks like it. What is it about you ask?
[...] a short-story set in Carythusal on the eve of the Scholastic Wars.
Sounds interesting don't you think?
