ALAN CAMPBELL'S SEA OF GHOSTS - PB OUT NOW!

By Louise Buckley
Today we celebrate the paperback publication of Alan Campbell’s SEA OF GHOSTS. Described by The Times as ‘A truly fantastic tale . . . an accomplished and original achievement’, the Morning Star as ‘Rampant imagination allied with unusually rich writing’ and The Speculative Scotsman blog as ‘A stonking good time . . . a breathless, whistle-stop tour of a wonderfully mouldering world’, this is the first book in a series we at Tor are very excited about.
Also, what a stonking cover!
Welcome to a world of water - where dragons are used as weapons and countries are separated by power, greed and fear...
Thrown out of the Graveyard corps by a corrupt and weak emperor, Granger has to turn to running his own prison.

But when two unexpected prisoners enter his life then his world is turned upside down.
