Dead & Buried

Just pressed the magic button, and the final draft of Dead & Buried (Benjamin January #9) whooshed on its way to Severn House in London. My fingers are now crossed. But, I’m very pleased with it. (I really hope I haven’t missed some excrutiatingly obvious clue…)

  1. I am so enthralled with this series. I want to thank Ms. Hambly for keeping Ben alive and thrilling as much as the publisher for printing it. I have been living near New Orleans for a few months and you have made this world more poignant than it would be otherwise. I love these books!!!!

  2. Oh! I can’t wait! Ben returns! I’m soooo excited.
    I loved Graveyard Dust and Fever Season! ….and Wet Grave was awesome!
    I’m such a fan. Thank you for such a lavish series! Your imagination and creativity are amazing.

  3. Excellent!

    Will ebook versions be available? I have almost no shelf space in my current house. :( I like the Baen Books model best, but Fictionwise Multiformat is good, too, or I’d be happy to buy directly from this site. I prefer ePub format. :)

  4. This is wonderful news. I think I have read the series four or five times – the last time when I was recovering from ‘flu. I also bought the two shorts, eviscerated the magazines and shelved the stories – where ? I can’t quite work out where in the chronological series either “Libre” of “Heart” should be positioned. Can someone tell me ?

    I shall look forward to the new episode – I shall probably BUY it NEW when it appears in paperback! (Now there’s an admission of enthusiasm!) I do have to say, however, that if the series WAS going to end, then the ending of “Dead Water” was just about perfect: the conversation about Livia, the re-appearance of the ambiguous slave-trader and finally Regina’s change of heart – I have wept over that ending more than once.

    I was a fan of Starhawk & Sun Wolf many years ago but seem to have grown away from “Sword & Sorcery” although I remember them with affection as among the best of their kind.

  5. A simple thank you from a compulsive reader

    I’ve just swept through the Benjamin January series for the umpteenth time trying to go slow at the end, since books like these are not only rare but, at the risk of sounding corny, in my experience unique. The attention to detail, the historical reference and framework are by themselves exquisite, but pales in the light of characters and narration. To, at p. 246 of Dead Water, hear that a new instalment in the series is en route just made my day; thank you!


  6. Woohoo! I have been waiting a long time for this!

  7. I have been waiting, and watching, checking the shelves at the bookstores and the library for a new Benjamin January book, ever since I finished reading the last in the series. I am so pleased to see that the series continues! Thank you, Barbara, for finding the time and creative energy for all the writing that you do. You do it so well!

  8. Hello
    I`m a polish fan of your books-unfortunately not all of them got the polish language translation. Winterlands series I love the most and if I am listening to this
    while reading I get a feeling that Jenny and I have a lot of in common. The only thing that I regret is that magic don`t work in this world as it do in hers-or maybe dragons just took the shape of some humans ;)
    Thank You for all your work!!!

  9. I’m thrilled that Benjamin January is returning in Dead & Buried. I love this series. Barbara, I love your writing.

  10. I’m so excited about the new Benjamin January book! And I will look forward to the new Asher and Ysidro and…wow, lots of good stuff coming up.

  11. Hi, Ayla-

    Barbara does plan to eventually return to the Sun-Cross series, but nothing is in the pipeline at this time.


  12. A friend gave me The Sun-Cross series and they were great!!!! I tried looking to see if there was a third and couldn’t find one. Is the series finished or are there plans for another book?
    I look forward to reading more of your work!
