Justin Cronin’s The Passage was one of the most acclaimed and talked about books of 2010. To promote the publication of the paperback on 12 May 2011, Orion are releasing five videos of Cronin discussing aspects of his novel, with the first appearing on 9 May.
We’re really pleased to say the The Gothic Imagination website will be hosting the third video, with Justin Cronin on location in Los Vegas, discussing the reactions of his characters on seeing the remnants of their lost civilisation. The video will appear on our site on 11 May 2011. Details about the complete video blog are given at the end of this post.
In addition to the normal paperback, Orion are also publishing a limited run paperback of The Passage, with screen printed red edges (see image left). This eye-catching edition is exclusive to Waterstones.
