In 2012, The Red Knight was released by Gollancz and was written by a debut author named Miles Cameron who happened to live in Canada, and was not coming to the UK to promote this book. The book is a great read, one that did sell well but the publisher decided that with book 2, The Fell Sword, they announced it was to be released as a paperback only! Shock horror, this annoyed everyone until it was announced by Gollancz that only 300, yes, 300 hardbacks were being commissioned and sold as a signed numbered ltd edition. No other hardback will exist. For a Gollancz hardback to only have 300 copies and from a respected and brilliant writer such as Miles Cameron. Once word got out about this 300 edition only hardback, prices on Abebooks, eBay and Amazon of The Red Knight have soared upto the £450 mark, if you can find one that is...so, if I was you, I would snap up any copies of book 2 that you can find; these will be serious investments very soon, perhaps more so than book 1.
