Shirley of MPH wrote to tell me about a treat in store for younger lovers of fantasy fiction.
Christopher Paolini who wrote the very popular Eragon and Eldest has now written a third novel, Brisingr, which will be released worldwide on 20 Sep 08. You can preorder the book at MPH, which is also giving away a limited edition magnetic bookmark + RM10 of MPH Bookstores book vouchers. (You can click up the poster to full size to read the details. But ... erm ... do I detect a whiff of Harry Potter like hype?)
Now I knew nothing about Paolini (in my astonishing ignorance!) but I've discovered that the young author has a fascinating story of his own and it's probably going to inspire other teens to write their novels and self-publish them.
