12/31/2002 Entry: "Bujold's PALADIN OF SOULS at Amazon.co.uk"
Amazon.co.uk is listing PALADIN OF SOULS, the sequel to Lois McMaser Bujold's THE CURSE OF CHALION, for release on October 20, 2003, in the U.K. I wonder if there'll be simultaneous publication in the U.S.? I know many of you hang out on various Bujold-related forums...what's the answer on U.S. publication? Is the title the same?

According to Lois, the title and release date are the same for U.S. publication.

"The Curse of Chalion" is an astounding work and a total delight. I had almost given up on the fantasy genre, which over the last several years has become so derivative and predictable that it's boring, especially if it's poorly written as so many of them are. You have your basic Tolkienesque hero and assorted companions on a grand quest to save the empire, the world, etc, etc, etc. When I started reading *this* book, however, it was new and fresh and completely unlike anything I'd read before. Bujold grabbed me from the opening page and kept a tight hold all the way to the end. I had no idea what was going to happen next, and for me, being such a voracious reader, that is extremely rare and very welcome. If you're looking for a fantasy that is truly different, "The Curse of Chalion" has my highest recommendation.
