The Windup Girl Finally Gets A UK Release
Up until now the fabulous The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi (review) has been only available officially in the US, published by Night Shade Books. What this has meant is that anyone in the UK who wanted to read it (like me) had to buy the US version. The availability was not too bad, I got mine from Amazon, and the price was not too bad, a few quid more than normal. However it did mean that it couldn’t be nominated for, let alone win, any UK based awards, such as the BSFA Award or The Clarke Award.
All of that is about to change as on 2nd December 2010 Orbit will publish a UK version of The Windup Girl. Hurrah! It’s available in paperback, audio edition or on the Kindle.
