The string of exciting news in the updates continues, as this week we got release dates and blurbs for all three Skyward Flight novellas and a cover for Sunreach (the first one), as well as a preview chapter for Cytonic! On a more somber note, Brandon went over and apologized for the bugs with the Mini-Con site (which we covered in our main post on the event). And of course, the progress bar for The Lost Metal ticks ever-upwards, now at 75%. Yes, you read that right, we finally have a cover for Sunreach, Janci Patterson's novella following FM (the first of three following various members of Skyward Flight around the events of Starsight and Cytonic). Without further ado, here it is: The novella is slated to release September 28th, barely over a week away! According to a press release from Gollancz, Brandon's UK publisher, the second novella (ReDawn, following Alanik) will release October 26th, and the third (Evershore, following Jorgen) will release December 28th. They will release simultaneously in eBook and audio, and the first two will be narrated by Suzy Jackson, who recorded the US audiobooks for the rest of the Skyward series (however, the narrator for Evershore has not been announced yet—thanks /u/Urithiru on Reddit for catching my mistake there). Additionally, Brandon plans to release all three novellas in a single print collection sometime next year. We also have blurbs for all three, which are copied below for your convenience. Warning: ReDawn and Evershore's blurbs contain spoilers for the previous novella(s), so click at your own risk. Sunreach ( preorder): ReDawn (preorder): Evershore (preorder): As if that wasn't enough Skyward news for one week, Tor.com has posted an excerpt from Chapter 1 of Cytonic (an earlier, much-changed version of the prologue and first chapter were previously released through Brandon's newsletter). It is currently unclear whether more preview chapters will be posted in the lead-up to the full novel's release on November 23rd or not. In other book updates, the second draft of The Lost Metal (Wax and Wayne book 4) is now 75% finished. After this draft, the novel will be sent to Brandon's writing group for feedback and further stages of revision, and it will eventually release in fall 2022. And lastly, Brandon explained and apologized for the bugs with the Mini-Con store. For more on that, you can read the updates to our main post on the event (which will celebrate the release of Cytonic). Now that we have the blurbs, which novella are you most excited to read? Which format will you be using, audio or digital? Let us know below or in the #events channel on our Discord server! Also, discuss the Cytonic preview chapter in the #noncosmere channel (as long as you spoiler tag it)! As per usual, the full Weekly Update video is on Brandon's YouTube channel and embedded below (though this week, much of the news comes from other sources), and the transcript will be on his blog when completed.
