SCOTTISH PRISONER update
Trade Paperback Available for Pre-order in the US and Canada
Diana Gabaldon's latest novel, THE SCOTTISH PRISONER, will be published in trade-paperback format (that's the large size paperback) in the US and Canada on May 29, 2012. It's available for pre-order now. Click on the image below to go to the pre-order page on Amazon.com. (The Canadian equivalent is here.)
I'm entertained to discover that my own review of THE SCOTTISH PRISONER, which I posted in December, 2011, is listed as the "most helpful positive review" on Amazon.com. That's very gratifying.
UK Paperback Release Date Confusion
There seems to be conflicting information about the paperback release date for THE SCOTTISH PRISONER in the UK. The Orion Books site (Diana Gabaldon's UK publisher) says May 2012, but it's listed on Amazon.co.uk and Waterstones with a publication date of 11 October 2012. Very confusing! Fans in the UK who want the paperback edition sooner than October might be better off ordering from The Book Depository or some similar site that ships worldwide.
German edition coming in June!
The German edition of THE SCOTTISH PRISONER, called DIE FACKELN DER FREIHEIT ("The Torches of Freedom"), will be published on 25 June 2012.
You can find out more about the German edition, translated by Barbara Schnell, on Diana Gabaldon's German website here. Please pass this information on to any German readers you may know.
