Michael Chabon's Gentlemen of the Road

Michael Chabon, who is One Of Us, has just begun serializing a swashbuckling adventure novel in the pages of the New York Times. The first installment appeared this week, and can be found here. (And if you can't read that much text online, well, you could always hear Chabon read the thing for you.)

Though dedicated to Michael Moorcock, and with the hint of Robert E. Howard's Solomon Kane in the early scenes of this first installment, it so far most resembles Fritz Lieber's Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser stories. Based on the press release I found, it appears that the novel is set to run in fifteen serialized chapters.

I see that this is coming out as a real book in October 2007.
Yep, from the good people at Del Rey, I believe. Which is a good thing, since I failed completely to keep up with the online installments.
