Disappointingly, Klett-Cotta have decided not to publish a German edition of The Third God. I can only assume that this is because the book was so late. I am not apologetic about having taken as long as I did to write the Stone Dance, but since it was I who chose to do so without compromising its artistic integrity, I cannot complain about these commercial consequences.
I am of course saddened that my German readers will not be able to read the book for now in their own language. My agents and I are seeking another German publisher.
