A quick update on recent and forthcoming publications of Stainless Steel Rat related items…
The new Rat novel, The Stainless Steel Rat Returns will now be published on 3rd August, so not long to wait for English readers. Russian readers had the first world edition in May.
Amazon now have a cover image for the new book, which shows a tasteful (?) Rat cocktail:
Also listed on Amazon (both the UK and US sites) are unabridged audiobook versions of all of the Rat books. These are being released by Brilliance Audio, and read by Phil Gigante. The Stainless Steel Rat Returns audiobook will be released at the same time as the hardback, on 7 CDs and running for eight hours! More details here. You can hear a sample – in .mp3 format – by clicking on the link on the site. Other titles are being released during the rest of this year and into next year.
I mentioned previously that the Stainless Steel Rat comics are being republished in a single volume. They’re listed on the Amazon UK site as having been published this month. I haven’t seen a copy yet, but will post a review as soon as I get a copy.
