Good news, good news

Through the Asking the Wrong Questions blog I find an interview in which I read that the last book of John Crowley's Ægypt quartet is finally going to be published next year. This is great news, as I've been waiting anxiously for this book to come out. I've been happy to pick up the books Crowley's published in the meanwhile, but puzzled why he didn't finish the Ægypt books. Turns out he's had the complete manuscript ready for three years. Three flipping years, and no publisher was interested.

There are some things about this world that I just don't understand.

But at least I'll have the Ægypt books to read while I puzzle over it.
