      Important Announcement!   07/28/2018

      Dear BCF members,   This forum has been running now for many years, and over that time we have seen many changes. Generalised forums are nowhere near as popular as they once were, and they have been very much taken over by blogs, vlogs and social media discussions. Running a forum well takes money, and a lot of care and attention, as there is so much which goes on behind the scenes to keep things running smoothly.   With all of this in mind, and after discussion within the current moderator team, the decision has been made to close this forum in its current format. I know that this will disappoint a lot of our long term members, but I want to reassure you that it's not a decision which has been taken lightly.    The remaining moderator team have agreed that we do not want to lose everything which is special about our home, and so we are starting a brand new facebook group, so that people can stay in touch, and discussions can continue. We can use it for free and should be easier for us to run (it won't need to be updated or hosted). We know not everyone has FaceBook, but we hope that those of you who are interested will join the group. We will share the link, and send invites as soon as we are ready to go. Added: We may as well get this going, find us here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/195289821332924/   The forum will close to new registrations, but will remain open for some time, to allow people to collect up any information, reading lists etc they need to, and to ensure they have contact details for those they wish to stay in touch with.    The whole team feel sad to say goodbye, but we also feel that it's perhaps time and that it feels like the right choice. We hope we can stay in touch with all of you through our new FaceBook group.   I personally want to thank everyone who has helped me moderate the forum, both in the past and the present, and I also want to thank every single person who has visited, and shared their love of books.. I'm so proud of everything we've achieved, and the home we built.   Please visit the new section in the Lounge section to discuss this further, ask questions etc.

Rivers of London by Ben Aaronovitch

Just because you said so, it doesn't make it true! I think you need to tell the various online booksellers, because they are definitely listing August. And Orion Publishing itself has the hardback release date as 25 August.

 

From Google, just now:

So June was right, until very recently at least...

 

Anyway, quoting Australian dates is a misnomer anyway because everyone knows it takes longer to print type upside down.

:) Ignoring the joke part of your comment, The Book Depository, who publication date I first quoted, is based in the UK, as is Orion Publishing. I also confirmed it with Amazon UK before writing my post. So there. :P

 

I'm happy to be proven wrong with the release date, and maybe it will indeed be made available before then, but I'm just going by what I can find online, not by what you wrote on 20 April and the first thing that Google shows (I saw the same thing, but scrolled past it for more info :P).

At least the Kindle and print version release dates agree with each other now (20th October).

 

This is the second time this has been pushed back, it was originally due out last year.  I wonder why there is a delay?

Well, mystery sort of solved, it seems there is no official release date. Ben Aaronovitch tweeted a Hanging Tree announcement saying 'release date currently in flux - it's totally my fault and I will give a definite date as soon as I have one.'

I'd been hoping for a summer date as I like to read these on holiday ... might have to make it a Christmas book instead.

Yeah, I noticed the same thing when I checked the Book Depository the other day. What, hasn't he even started writing it yet?!

Hope this doesn't turn into a publication date saga similar to the 6th Game of Thrones book ;)
