In past weeks we’ve been seeing a lot of big series coming into WWEnd with The Grand Tour, Discworld and The Dragon Knight counted among them. This week the magic number is three. Three for trilogy. We’ve added 22 new books to the WWEnd database completing nine trilogies.
Let’s start with The Well-Built City Trilogy by Jeffrey Ford. The Physiognomy won the 1998 World Fantasy Award and to that we’ve added Memoranda and The Beyond in the reprint editions from Golden Gryphon Press. The cover art for this edition is a superb triptych from artist John Picacio. Very nice indeed.
The Marathon Trilogy by D. Alexander Smith is all in with Marathon and Homecoming added either side of 1988 PKD Nom Rendezvous. Never judge a book by its cover they say. Well these covers are pretty bad ass so be sure to check them out anyway. I love big spaceships.
Last, but not least, we have The Minotaur Trilogy by Thomas Burnett Swann. This trilogy is different from most in that for reasons unknown Mr. Swann wrote the stories backwards. He started with book three 1967 Hugo Nominee Day of the Minotaur, then followed it with book two The Forest of Forever in 1971 and ended with book one Cry Silver Bells in 1977. How’s that for confusing?
