The not quite as out of date as usual
Garth Nix website

This is my own website. One day, in the far future when mollusks have evolved into higher beings, my new website www.garthnix.com will be operational. In the meantime you can also visit www.garthnix.co.uk (now with a video of me impersonating a block of wood), www.keystothekingdom.com.au, www.abhorsentrilogy.com, www.scholastic.com/titles/keys

 

US Visit April/May 2006

I’ll be visiting Houston, Chicago and New York from April 26 to May 6. I’m attending TLA in Houston and IRA in Chicago. I will be doing some school visits and public signings at a bunch of bookstores around Houston and the Chicago area (list here) and a May 5 signing at Books of Wonder in NYC.

 

Sir Thursday is here

(and as of March 24 has been as high as #9 on the overall Australian BookScan bestsellers, #8 in the UK Bookscan Children’s list, and the series as a whole popped into the New York Times children’s series list at #8 on March 12 before slipping down again into less illuminated regions)

The Catalogue of Forthcoming Australian F&SF

For the World Fantasy Convention in Madison, Jonathan Strahan and I put together a catalogue of F&SF books by Australian authors to be published in the period from October 2005-October 2006. Printed booklet-style catalogues were distributed at WFC. The Acrobat PDF is now available for download here. (The cover type has gone peculiar which I will fix when I can.)

The two boxed sets are still available. HarperCollins UK Box Set of the Old Kingdom Trilogy (also available in an Allen & Unwin branded version from Dymocks in Australia) and the HarperCollins US Box Set of the Abhorsen Trilogy

Samples

 

I thought I might put up the first few pages (or thereabouts) of various new things that will be coming out next year. These are not the final, edited, locked-down versions of the text, but they will be pretty close.
