Some miscreant by the name of Scott Lynch — whoever he is — is typing horrible, slanderous lies about me and my art ON THE INTERNET, thus besmirching that last bastion of temperate reason and truthfulness.
THIS WILL NOT STAND.
Naturally, I have replied to his splenetic libels over there with sweet and gentle correction.
GO THOU AND DO LIKEWISE.
That is all.
Okay, so here’s an announcement that I’ve been sitting on for a while, which I can finally tell you about:
I’m doing a manga series.
It’s a format I’ve been curious about for a while — we had planned a manga series around Old Man’s War a few years ago, but it had gotten hung up on contractual issues — so to be finally able to say that a project is under way is really exciting. In fact, I don’t think I’ve been this excited about a project for a whole year.
Tor.com has all the details, plus the absolutely fantastic cover art by artist Madeleine Rosca. Really, she has done a spectacular job, capturing the look and feel of the project. I simply could not be happier about the work she’s done.
So, what are you waiting for? Go! And I hope you love this manga project as much as I do. I expect great things from it. I can’t wait for you to see it.
Update: Some people have noted the date as questionable, so let me just say this: We know most major publishing projects aren’t announced on a Sunday, but we had reason to believe we were about to be scooped on our own project by a comics site. And of course we couldn’t have that. I hope this clears up any confusion.
