Iron Jaw and Hummingbird

The news has started popping up a few places, and it was pointed out to me that I haven't mentioned it here. So...

"IRON JAW AND HUMMINGBIRD by Chris Roberson portrays two youths caught up in the revolution against a despotic Martian government controlled by the Dragon Throne of Imperial China, North American rights to Sharyn November of Firebird Books, a division of Penguin Group USA."

A YA science fiction novel, Iron Jaw and Hummingbird is set in my "Celestial Empire" universe (which includes the stories "O One," "Red Hands, Black Hands," "Gold Mountain," and the forthcoming The Voyage of Night Shining White), though it's completely stand-alone. Essentially an opera on a terraformed Mars, it's got bandit chiefs, revolutionaries, religious fanatics, corrupt generals, wastrel second sons, and thieves.... the same old, same old.

I'm incredibly jazzed to have the opportunity to work with Sharyn, who's one of my favorite people in publishing. The book is due out in hardcover in 2008, as I understand it, so mark your calendars now. If you can find a calendar that lists 2008, that is.

Hey, congrats!
i'm pretty jazzed too!

for clarification: the hardcover will be viking. the paperback will be firebird. so the announcement sort of messed up!
Thanks, Sharyn! I stand corrected.
