I loved the Scott Lynch "Lies of Loche Lamora," and the sequel was pretty good too. Book three, "Republic of Thieves" was listed on Amazon as coming out on 8 Dec 11. However, while it still list that as the release date, it still has the "sign up to be notified when this product becomes available" tag too. Anyone know what's up with this?
I checked his home page, no news. I was suprised that he has SEVEN books planned in the series. If he keeps taking this long he'll be beating Jordan and Martin when it comes to keeping his fans waiting.

Impossible to beat the reigning champ Martin...

The book has been delayed multiple times due to the author's health related issues, so in no way is he pulling a GRRM. :-)

The author has had a severe nervous breakdown so we may never get book three. Shame, because I thought the first book was masterful and I was looking forward to following the series.

Amazon just changed the publication date to Febuary of 2011. I'll assume they mean 2012. His wiki page lists it as March 2012. So I guess it's still scheduled to show up at some point. Good books, looking forward to it showing up.

The author's publishers just released information saying that they still don't have a draft of his book so the soonest it would be released would be in fall of 2012, but they have no date, nor even a tentative date. They say that Lynch is still struggling with his health issues so they wish him the best of luck and say they'd rather have him healthy than have his book.

It doesn't look promising, but it sounds like he's bad off. I would love to continue the series. I loved these books, but if he's as bad off as it sounds, it sounds like taking time away from writing to focus on himself, no matter how long it takes, is necessary.

Poor guy...

I'm very sorry to hear this. I really enjoyed his first two books and I am looking forward to see what comes next. I hope he finds his way back to happy soon.

Bummer, thanks for the info though. Good luck to him, he's a very talented guy and hopefully he can get well enough to write more.

Republic of Thieves is coming out NEXT MONTH!!!11!!1! I really enjoyed the first two in the series and loved the different structure of the story telling. I am really looking forward to the next one and hope it follows along the same lines. So far in the last two there has been a different adventure story resolved within the book, although there are over arching elements. I hope the format stays similar as there are 7 books planned total and this is only the third.

Here is the announcement from Scott Lynch's Livejournal about Republic of Thieves:
