“Destroyer of Worlds” – 3rd Niven/Lerner book signed!

Niven/Lerner - Fleet of Worlds

SPNN (book news/interview)

An interview with Ed Lerner, by Paradox Olbers as SolBelter and David Sooby as Lensman.

*Ed Lerner, co-author of Fleet of Worlds and Juggler of Worlds with Larry Niven, announced during a Saturday chat session that he and Larry had a contract, a title [Destroyer of Worlds], and – Pak!  He gave no further details since they haven’t started to write the book yet.  🙂

*Juggler of Worlds, the second half of the Puppeteer duology, has been rescheduled from August to September ’08 hardcover release in the US by Tor.

When interviewed, Ed had this guesstimate of when DoW might be released. 
<SolBelter> ok EML, “perhaps early 2010, EML ventured”  [after declining to be quoted on a previous phrasing of DoW’s completion]
<EML> SB: okay, that’s suitably tentative 🙂
<SolBelter> is it fairer to say, EML, that DoW is set against the same backdrop events of 1st 2, or to say third in the series?
<EML> DOW will take place after FOW and JOW. That said, it’ll be standalone.
<SolBelter> [i’m an SPNN reporter for Spindrift, in the SciLands, Second Life]
<Lensman> Ed:  So do I understand you have the title and a contract, but you haven’t yet worked out even the basic plot of DOW yet? [Ed later said yes to David Sooby’s question.] Ed corrected us in a followup comment to this post: I appear to have left a slight misimpression. Larry & I haven’t yet done much writing of Destroyer of Worlds, but we *have* worked out the plot and background.
<EML> “Day of the RFIDs” was first published in the antho Future Washington and is in my collection Creative Destruction. You can get the standalone on fictionwise.com.
<EML> “Night of the RFIDs” is just out, in the May Analog [also at fictionwise].
<SolBelter> excellent EML! thank you.
