The Republic of Thieves by Scott Lynch

Simon Spanton tells us why we should all go and buy The Republic of Thieves paperback, and why B format is his personal favourite…

Hearty congratulations to Scott Lynch on the mass market paperback publication of his awesome Gentleman Bastard novel The Republic of Thieves.

Here’s your chance to catch up on the adventures of fantasy’s two favourite con men – the artful Locke Lamora and the somewhat more direct Jean Tannen – for a new lower price and more portable format. Say what you like about eBooks and hardbacks but I like the B Format paperback: it gets curly and creased the more you love it; you can drop it in the bath and still read it; you can swat annoying friends with it without doing them (or it) too much damage and it was once (when I was in my twenties and there was no internet or personal computers or anything much to live for) an exciting new format.

Relive the good old days! Buy a B Format Scott Lynch book today! Comes with bonus Sabetha Belacaros– the love, the bane, the match, the better of Locke Lamora.

The Republic of Thieves is available now in paperback, eBook and audio.
