As we have more news over the coming months, Wilshire and I will keep this thread updated. I didn't want to put "official release date" in the thread title and incite people.

But for now... The Unholy Consult exists!

Thanks, Mithfanion :) :

The Unholy Consult - Amazon; with synopsis, be wary (TGO Spoilers).

Also, link, in case the hyperlink redirects: https://www.amazon.com/Unholy-Consult-Aspect-Emperor-Book-Four/dp/1468314866/ref=sr_1_11?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1476027600&sr=1-11

Semi-recent update: Overlook Summer 2017 catalogue.

Same old face cover. Same old egregious spelling error and probably terrible synopsis...

Overlook, do you not like us fans?

Listing says July 4th 2017.

Update:

More confirmation, this time from Bakker on his blog:
Quote
The Unholy Consult, the penultimate book of The Aspect-Emperor, is set to be released this July, ending a story arc that has been my obsession for some thirty years now. Iím far from done with the Three Seas, of course: The Second Apocalypse possesses one final chapter. But this arc was the animating vision, the feverish sequence of glimpses I used to paint the whole.

My emphasis.
Also noteworthy, "the Second Apocalypse possesses one final chapter".
One of the other conditions of possibility.

Wertzone got an e-arc from Bakker and has been discussing bits of it on Westeros. It has begun!

The dates on Amazon appear to be shifting:

.co.uk is still the July 6th.
.com has changed from the 4th to the 11th.
.ca is the 18th.

Also, Pat has shared a "Quote of the Day" from TUC on the Hotlist, which amounts to an excerpt a couple paragraphs long. Definitely showcases Bakker's amazing writing!

The Wertzone's The Unholy Consult Review!

I'm a pretty big purist and I think it's spoiler free. Very well done!
