Do we know if Scott will publish this story on his blog (or maybe via us here ;) )? Or is the only way to get the full story to buy the magazine?

I'd guess he's only selling this one. Its $3 to buy the whole magazine, and its digital.

MG - is there anything on the Grimdark site that has this info published. Also, will be it available on their site anywhere or just via email?

I don't know, but I get the impression that the only way to get this story (legitimately) is to be a subscriber to Grimdark, magazine delivered via email.

Wait... it's been almost a year and a half since part I of whatever that story was called came out? Unbelievable... How long have I been waiting for TUC???

I remember a time when Bakker was saying he's almost done with TUC and a few months later he gave Madness the manuscript... that was ages ago... :o

Yeah Madness mentioned it's been nearly two years since he first read the thing... crazy how he has to wait even longer before he can discuss the whole story.

Not sure if I should just wait for the whole book or join in on the artificial marketing hype cycle...

Artificial marketing hype circle. What is that :P?

Just the way media publishers drip feed teaser content to get audiences swept up in pre-release hype. Maybe that doesn't really apply to book publishing so much...

I think I'm gonna forego the excerpts since we just read a lot of TSA and I dont want to get burned out before TGO.

Or Overlook, in particular - though, I don't want to discourage them, they are doing far better this time than any other previous release, so far as I can remember.

Good luck getting to July 5th, unspoiled or unteased, Bolivar :).
