Gallow Cover Reveal
Gollancz are very pleased to be publishing the Gallow books by Nathan Hawke later this year. Three fast-paced, snappy novels featuring Viking-like warriors, of whom the titular Gallow is one, we think that these covers by Alejandro Colucci sum up the feel perfectly. Nearer the time we’ll be running extracts, exclusive short stories and more from this exciting new series, but for now feast your eyes on these.

Gallow: The Crimson Shield is released on the 11th July 2013, with Gallow: Cold Redemption and Gallow: Last Bastion following in August and September respectively.
