Orbit UK schedule update: April 2009

We’ve updated the Orbit UK Schedule page with details of our forthcoming titles for April 2009. The following Orbit books will be available from all good bookstores – high street and online alike – round about April 2nd:

  • A Madness of Angels by Kate Griffin – Matthew Swift… murdered, resurrected, angry. A sorceror in life and now… something more? A tale of London’s seedy magical under-belly; one that’s sure to appeal to fans of Neil Gaiman, China Miéville or Mike Carey’s brand of dark, urban fantasy noir.
  • Turn Coat by Jim Butcher – In the latest instalment of Jim Butcher’s Dresden Files, Harry Dresden is in trouble up to his neck as an old adversary turns to him for help: to clear his name and to save his life. But one false step could spell disaster for Chicago’s leading freelance wizard-for-hire.
  • The Night Sessions by Ken MacLeod – A priest is murdered in Edinburgh: is this the first sign of a religious rebellion that’s about to sweep a world still trying to forget the dark days of The Faith Wars? A thought-provoking, near-future thriller from the author of The Execution Channel.
  • Bloodheir by Brian Ruckley – The war between the Black Road and the True Blood clans is escalating as invading forces sweep down from the far north. But darker powers are growing and gaining influence in the second instalment of Brian Ruckley’s debut fantasy saga, The Godless World.
  • Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells – Brand new urban fantasy from debut author Jaye Wells. In a world where being of mixed-blood is a major liability, Sabina doesn’t really fit in. And being an assassin – the only profession fit for an outcast – doesn’t help matters. But she’s never brought her work home. Until now …
