Penric's Mission in stock and shipping — very limited quantities remain

Penric's Mission by Lois McMaster Bujold


We've just finished shipping all customer orders for the limited and trade editions of Lois McMaster Bujold's very long novella, Penric's Mission, and are moving on to bookstore and distributor orders. The trade hardcover is sold out, though we do have stock remaining of the signed, limited edition. For those who've been following the series, we do have contracts in place for further volumes.

About the Book:

Learned Penric sails on a journey to Cedonia not as a sorcerer in the white robes of the Bastard’s Order, but disguised as a young lawyer on business. His real mission is one of clandestine diplomacy on behalf of the Duke of Adria. His usual traveling companion, the slyly clever chaos demon Desdemona who inhabits his body, is the only one in on the secret… Or so it’s supposed to be. Instead, upon arrival in Cedonia, Penric finds himself gravely injured and imprisoned in the darkest of dungeons. Escape will not be easy, as Penric meets an intriguing young widow and has more than one brush with disaster in his immediate future.

With Penric’s Mission, multiple-award-winner and bestselling author Lois McMaster Bujold returns to her World of the Five Gods, the setting of her acclaimed novels The Curse of ChalionPaladin of Souls, and The Hallowed Hunt. Continuing the tale begun in the Hugo finalists for Best Novella “Penric’s Demon” and “Penric and the Shaman,” Bujold’s newest installment of Penric and Desdemona’s tale is another must-read novella for her legion of fans.

Limited: 450 signed numbered leatherbound copies: $45

From Publishers Weekly:

“Penric is an unusual hero facing unique dilemmas and his third tale is a pleasure to read.”
