Is Safehold published by a different company than Honorverse books are? ((I just had my first e-arc experience with the newest Honorverse book... so is that not going to happen with the new Safehold book?))


Safehold is published by Tor

Honnorverse by Baen.

Tor doesn't do eARCs. It does do paper ARCs to select people to generate publicity and favorable advance reviews.

Occasionally, some advance reviewers sell the paper ARC on eBay for inflated prices. Not sure Tor (or the author) really approves of that.

It's hit and miss of what or when ARCs end up on eBay.

The unholy war between the small but mighty island realm of Charis and the radical, luddite Church of God's Awaiting has finally come to an end. Those on the side of progressing humanity through advanced technology have finally triumphed over their oppressors. However, even though a provisional veil of peace has fallen over human colonies, many secrets of Safehold's past still remain unearthed

Aargh, “secrets remain unearthed” does not mean what the author of the blurb presumably intended.

It's worth noting that the intense interest and competition for 2nd hand ARCs on eBay, often going up into the mid 3 figure price range, was one of the major factors in convincing Baen to monetize them.

Getting a Tor ARC or two up that high might have a similar motivating effect on the publisher.

Thanks. Bearing in mind all the usual caveats about cover art, those dangling baskets at least suggest the artist read the last book. Also the left-most "aircraft" appears to have propellers at each side of the gondola, suggesting that it has engines and is steerable. Let battle recommence as to which type of engine :evil:

While at MantiCon this past weekend, Himself did mention a few details about TFT.

The manuscript has been turned in, with the exception of 1 partial chapter detailing a specific event sequence (trying to avoid spoilers). Said piece to be inserted fairly early in the book, later in-book references already established.

Himself's original plan for the book had to be reworked and the book covers over 16 years of in-universe time.

Himself specifically mentioned 'steam powered zeppelins air-dropping arms and supplies to the peasant rebellion in North Harchong'. And, honestly, just that one statement has me practically beside myself in anticipation.

I can hardly wait.
