Forthcoming Tamora Pierce Books and Stories Through 2015:
NOTE: Beginning with TRICKSTER'S CHOICE, Scholastic Australia is publishing trade paperback editions of Tammy's Tortall books concurrently with Random House U.S.'s hardcover editions.
Following the publication of TRICKSTER'S QUEEN, however, Scholastic U.K. is no longer Tammy's publisher in Great Britain and the rest of the English-speaking world (outside Australia, New Zealand and Canada), and there is at this time no publisher for these territories. Until further notice, if you wish to purchase import copies you may do so via online bookstores like Amazon. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
