Meet Lord Q

by wjw on February 15, 2022

Lord Quillifer drops today, February 15, and that means you can pick it right up!

Find it at your friendly neighborhood bookstore, or at Amazon, Kobo, Apple, Google, or Barnes & Noble

Yup. Amazon just notified me that my pre-order has been filled.

Eagerly awaiting my copy from B&N! And with Daniel Abraham’s book out today, it’s a New Mexico SFF two-fer!

Sid Stafford February 15, 2022 at 8:27 pm

Welp, I’m done. When’s the next one? 🙂

Susan February 15, 2022 at 8:32 pm

My invoice showed up from Kobo just after midnight. It’s downloaded and ready to go!

Started reading it yesterday, and it has me wondering how much of this is inspired by Queen Elizabeth. I didn’t really put that thought together until this book. And as I recall, there was talk of QE having a fling with certain rapscallions…

Finished – 2 days of reading.
Viceroy Quillifer next (hopefully)?

Brad DeLong February 16, 2022 at 8:22 pm

Oh! Very nicely done…


Not just the Burghley and the Leicester, but the Walsingham and the Drake roles too? Doesn’t such a concentrated essence of Tudor daring and do run the risk of creating a Singularity and disrupting the multiverse?

History confuses Burghley and Walsingham anyway. (Or at least the movies do.)

If I’m adapting elements of Tudor history, it’s only to set up expectations in the reader— which I then proceed to replaced with something EVEN MORE AWESOME!

I was confused when I ran into a character named “Catsgrove” and couldn’t figure out where he came from. Inexplicably, Catsgore gets renamed on three occasions, once in the same scene between paragraphs.

Clearly the copy editor wasn’t doing the job.

Bought it, read it in +/- 18 hours (sleep time included), loved it. Bit of a downer at the end, but I could understand where you were going with it, and you hit the right and realistic notes, notwithstanding the slight bummer.

Brad Delong February 18, 2022 at 6:14 pm

Yes. We do remember being certain that the son of the murdered Duke of York Winterfell would become king; and that there would then be trouble between his family and his bride’s kin. And instead we got THE RED WEDDING!!!

We do remember…

So, when’s Viceroy Q due out?!?! 🙂

Jim Janney February 19, 2022 at 3:11 pm

And now I find myself inexplicably craving meat pies.

John F. MacMichael February 19, 2022 at 3:12 pm

I got my copy on the 16th and finished it in two days. A real pleasure to read the latest in a series when it not only meets the high marks you set earlier in the series but actually surpasses them. Taking Quillifer from the picturesque rascal/hero he started as to a character of genuine depth and complexity is a remarkable achievement. I look forward to the next in the series with great anticipation.

Will there be another book ?

wjw February 22, 2022 at 12:32 am

I’ve planned not one more book, but three.

However it’s clear that what publishers want is not necessarily what I want.

Cowboy Wally February 22, 2022 at 10:24 am

I’m enjoying it very much! I was lucky enough to win a free audiobook of the first one, and I got the second, and pre-ordered the third as soon as it was possible. Thanks, Mr. Williams!

Let us all hope the plan doesn’t get Maijstral’ed!

Jon, loved the book, and the closing line really points to the resilience of our brave protagonist. Looking forward to any new books, but hoping for at least 3. “King Quillifer”, hmmm?

Doc Con March 28, 2022 at 11:56 am

Can’t wait for book 4. Consumed all 3 in a week’s time and that hasn’t happened since the 90a when i worked for The Other Change of Hobbit. Well,well done!
