I am definitely still a fan of Steven Brust’s Taltos series, despite the epic fail that was TECKLA.
If you are, too, then here’s an excerpt of HAWK, over at tor.com.
I’m not going to read the excerpt because I don’t need a teaser. I expect I will buy the book when it comes out, in October. This bit from the back cover copy makes me pretty sure I’ll like it:
For years, Vlad has run from one end of the Empire to the other, avoiding the Jhereg assassins who pursue him. Now, finally, he’s back in the imperial capital where his family and friends are. He means to stay there this time. Whatever happens. And whatever it takes.
Sounds very promising!
