It seems this is the weekend for Milkweed publishing news. I was planning to sit on this for a few more days, but on further reflection, today seemed like the right day for another announcement.
ARCs of The Coldest War have been sent out, and the audio edition is available, and the print and electronic editions will be appearing very soon. That means the time has come for my publishers and I to put our collective heads together and turn our thoughts to the best format for Necessary Evil, the finale of the Milkweed Triptych. We had to weigh a number of factors. Most of all, however, we had to look for the best fit between the format and the story.
But once we considered all of our options, the answer became obvious! Which is why Necessariy Evil will be published exclusively as a coloring book.
We're very excited about this. It's a perfect fit! There's even talk of an expanded edition that might come packaged with extra scenes as well as a box of crayons. The details aren't set in stone yet, but I'm confident that the coloring book format is the perfect approach for the final Milkweed novel.
Yes, today is April 1. Why do you ask?Close Permalink
I am very excited about this. I have been raising one of my grand nieces in splendid isolation from the rest of humanity. She has begun speaking with the most marvelous of intonations. This should make just the perfect gift.
What's that dear? Why yes, I did cut my finger while clearing some brush. Why do you ask? Oh my....
Be certain to buy your niece the proper crayons -- the Limited Edition Crayola Lovecraft Pack comes with a special crayon, "The Colour Out of Space." It's the perfect tone for eldritch horrors from outside of space and time!
I would totally love this! Also a colour out of space crayon too! :)
Thanks so much for the Advance Coloring Copy of Necessary Evil. Also, thanks for the experimental tDCS rig. I found that when setting #1242A (Synesthesia colour ? gustatory) is applied, the flavour of the colourings is particularly evocative.
The best thing about the coloring book is that it's a perfect match with the writing -- the lightly-sketched plot, and the orange and blue morality...
Steve, 1242A is one of my favourites!
