Lies of Locke Lamora

Lies of Locke Lamora

Illustration By Edward Miller

Dust jacket and interior illustrations by Edward Miller

Subterranean Press is proud to announce the limited edition of one of the best fantasies of the past decade.

The Thorn of Camorr is said to be an unbeatable swordsman, a master thief, a ghost that walks through walls. Half the city believes him to be a legendary champion of the poor. The other half believe him to be a foolish myth. Nobody has it quite right.

Slightly built, unlucky in love, and barely competent with a sword, Locke Lamora is, much to his annoyance, the fabled Thorn. He certainly didn't invite the rumors that swirl around his exploits, which are actually confidence games of the most intricate sort. And while Locke does indeed steal from the rich (who else, pray tell, would be worth stealing from?), the poor never see a penny of it. All of Locke's gains are strictly for himself and his tight-knit band of thieves, the Gentlemen Bastards.

Locke and company are con artists in an age where con artistry, as we understand it, is a new and unknown style of crime. The less attention anyone pays to them, the better! But a deadly mystery has begun to haunt the ancient city of Camorr, and a clandestine war is threatening to tear the city's underworld, the only home the Gentlemen Bastards have ever known, to bloody shreds. Caught up in a murderous game, Locke and his friends will find both their loyalty and their ingenuity tested to the breaking point as they struggle to stay alive...

The Lies of Locke Lamora will be illustrated with a full color cover, and four full page illustrations (one exclusive to the lettered) by Edward Miller, available in two unique editions:

Limited: 500 signed numbered hardcover copies
Lettered: 15 signed lettered copies, housed in a custom traycase

Collector's note: If the rights can be secured, we plan to release limited editions of each of Scott's novels in the "Gentleman Bastard" sequence. Those ordering Locke Lamora will have the right of first refusal on the next volume in the series, Red Seas Under Red Skies.

Additionally, we have commissioned three original short novels (45-50,000 words each), prequels that lead right up to The Lies of Locke Lamora. Those ordering Lies will, again, have right of first refusal on the limited editions of the novellas.
