There’s Skulduggery afoot as Derek Landy announces Skulduggery Pleasant: The Dying Of The Light – The Black Edition – only available for discovery in Waterstones bookshops… Find out more and how you can get your hands on it.
“For the final book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series,” Derek Landy said, “I wanted to make it as special as possible. We have our fantastic, wonderful, jaw-dropping regular cover, and we have our stunning, amazing, awe-inducing Limited Edition cover. And now, for our final revelation, with a huge thanks to our friends at Waterstones, we have the Black Edition — but fans will need to prove themselves to get hold of a copy.”
The Skulduggery Pleasant: The Dying Of The Light – Black Edition, which will be available on 28th August, is limited to 1000 copies and features an alternate black cover design as well as details of an exclusive competition – giving readers the chance to have lunch with Mr Landy himself!
But, super-fans are going to have to FIND the books first… Unlike the other editions, the Black Edition is not available online or in any other bookshops. All Waterstones stores* will receive a limited number of copies, but they’ll be shelved along with lots of other books in the Children’s section, rather than placed on a table or at the front of the shop. It’s first come, first served with no reservations or pre-orders and just one copy per person.
So, write it in your diary, set *all* the alarms on your phone, scrawl it on your bedroom wall in marker pen, tweet it as a daily mantra and generally just tell everyone you’ve ever met to remind you to get down to your local Waterstones on 28th August to get your hands on Skulduggery Pleasant: The Dying Of The Light – The Black Edition!
Skulduggery Pleasant: The Dying Of The Light – The Black Edition is published 28th August, priced £14.99.
*Available in all Waterstones bookshops, except Amsterdam and Brussels.
