[reading] Jon Courtney Grimwood


Don't worry, this isn't another post about someone dying.

Back in the day, I really liked Grimwood's SF books (especially the Arabesk Trilogy). Set in alternative histories, they tended towards Cyberpunk and felt very different. Very Richard K Morgan in some ways. These days, he's writing thrillers and 'literary' fiction.

I fancied revisiting the SF, but found it's not available (at least on Kindle). Anyone know why?
My guess is it’s a rights thing. They seem to have been published by a number of different publishers over the years, most recently by Gollancz perhaps, so it’s quite possible electronic rights have never been established. I'll try and ask about and see if I can find anything out.

The weird thing is that they seem to be available in foreign language editions, but not English. It's the same with Glen Cook (although the US editions are available in Europe, just not in the UK).
