Ancillary Justice….Hardcover!

So, every now and then someone emails me, or pops up in comments, to ask if there’ll be a hardcover edition of Ancillary Justice. And until very, very recently the answer has been, “Nope. It would be awesome, I agree, but there are no such plans at the moment.”

Well, that is no longer true. Y’all know Subterranean Press, right? If you don’t, you should. My very first genre sale was actually to issue number four of Subterranean Magazine, an issue guest-edited by John Scalzi. Sadly, Subterranean Magazine is no more, but Subterranean Press puts out lovely limited-edition hardcovers.

And yes, some time next year they’re going to be doing a signed, limited-edition hardcover of Ancillary Justice. So, those of you who have desired such a thing, watch this space!

    AAAAAH ūüėÄ Much excitement! I have never previously sprung for a SP limited edition hardcover, but this might just be enough to tempt me…

    I bought a few paperbacks to hand around as the Kobo ebook. I don’t need a signed limited edition but a hardcover would be nice.

    That is absolutely brilliant news, I have Subterranean Press copies of Hyperion and Fall of Hyperion which are lovely and more recently got their stunning edition of Gaiman’s Smoke and Mirrors, it’s probably my most prized book (which is saying something) because the design and finish is so incredibly well done. Please please please give us a bit of a heads up if you can before the preorder goes live on the SP page, many of their books sell out within a few hours of announcing. Anyways, this is great news and I can’t wait for Sword, so close now!

      Pre-order page just went up!

      I’d have given you a heads up if I could, but I just found out.

    Subterranean announced the book today, which is exciting! But my collecting enthusiasm is a bit dampened by the wording of their announcement:

    “We’re pleased to announce that we’ll be publishing a signed, limited (and likely first hardcover) edition of Ann Leckie’s multi-award winning debut novel, Ancillary Justice.”

    What does “likely first hardcover” mean — might there be another hardcover edition published in the interim?

    1. Ann says:

      There is, to my knowledge, no other hardcover in the works. You’re right, though, the wording is odd. If you’re in doubt (which I don’t blame you for) I’d email them to ask for clarification.
