okay but i can’t be the only one who has been picturing this and smiling all week, right?
i fnished “a year and a day in old theradane” today and SHOCK OF SHOCKS, i would read a billion more words about these assholes. it’s so terrible that my favorite author writes so many wonderful things, my life is the hardest, etc etc.
i guess i’ll read the rest of the stories in rogues now, even though there is no possible way for them to measure up.
Some of you are surprisingly sharp, and some of you have no idea what the fuck is going on. I really fear for you, you may need professional help. But I love you all equally.
— Scott Lynch on fan speculation (i assume i’m in the second camp)
Lots of Bisexual Threeway Unicorn Fucking
— Scott Lynch’s new title for book 6 (previously (tentatively) called The Mage and the Master Spy)
They’re gonna fuck a unicorn in Book 5.
— Scott Lynch on the Sanzas and their sex lives
Eventually shock value loses its shock, and then what have you got?
— Scott Lynch on cursing, armed with a barrel of horse piss probably
Scott Lynch’s Lies of Locke Lamora, he’s so dreamy.
— Scott Lynch, channeling me on his favorite book/never fail book rec
Calo and Galdo Sanza as Giacomo and Castellano Asino in The Republic of Thieves (Gentlemen Bastards Series) by Scott Lynch

Since you made pizza non existent in Camorr and since Locke and Jean both have culinary skills, couldn't they invent pizza in some way? If they get tired of the whole trickery lark (if they ever could) they could set up a restaurant! Every thief in Camorr would be clamoring for Locke and Jean's pizza :D
The evolution of pizza from a Roman-style flatbread is now an essential plot point for a future book. I dunno which one, I just know I can’t keep these poor people deprived forever. Antibiotics, sanitation, gunpowder? Fuck ‘em. Pizza? There must be pizza. It is known.
i would like to rescind my earlier comments re: scott lynch being a monster.

The Love and Lies of Locke Lamora - a Scott Lynch Interview | Tomio Me
The Lies of Locke Lamora debuts. Scott Lynch talks. In this interview with the author of the Gentlemen Bastards.
An interview with Scott from before Red Seas came out! Scott is, as always, super-charming and the questions are different and lead to lots of interesting points and new information! (Seriously, I’ve had a google alert on Scott’s name for years and I just learned a bunch of new stuff. A++, and Scott, WHAT IS GOING ON WITH CONSCIENCE OF THE STORM? No pressure, but I have a mighty need and I’m sure I’m not the only one.)
Bro. Bro. Bro.
BRO. HOLD UP THERE BRO. Locke started out in scifi — someone put him back in it and write a crossover with Firefly. Don’t even talk to me about mighty needs. Don’t touch me.
omgggggggggggg CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE HIM ON SERENITY?? (did you get to the fruity oaty bar part yet, DID YOU??)
Wow. Jesus. I must admit I had completely forgotten that I had spilled some beans about THE CONSCIENCE OF THE STORM, other than the title. Jay must have caught me in a particularly expansive mood. But then again, my first novel had just come out, and I would have been freshly recovered from the horrible pneumonia I caught on my way to the UK. And I was soon to be married, and the writing of RSURS was a golden time for that relationship. The depressive spiral was two years away. Damn, it’s like looking at another person, in some ways. Looking at the interview (all props to Jay for such lengthy and interesting questions), part of me wants to cringe at all the wishful thinking and assumptions that haven’t come true. Another part of me recognizes that shit happens. You can hit a plan with perfection when you’re getting groceries or catching a train. The plans for biggest and most important stuff, like war and art and love and cats, never survive first contact with reality. The salient part for some of you out there is this: THE CONSCIENCE OF THE STORM is still coming. Dremagne and Alex are still in my head, waiting for their spotlights. There are several more immediate projects to which I owe practical and contractual fidelity. And I will not talk about TCOTS, at all, other than this note, until it is time to -really- talk about it, if you know what I mean.
for real, it just makes me happy to know it’s still floating around in there! i am obviously PRETTY EXCITED for the more immediate projects as well :D
