Anonymous said: Would you ever consider coming to the Bay Area? Namely, the Berkeley/San Francisco area? We've got a lot of rabid, fiery, too-young, college-age writers here that practically worship your books. Come! We haven't got cookies, but we do have a bridge that is awfully similar to the ones Karthain has! And we also have a lot of fog and nice sunrises and liberals! Come visit!

Of course I would love to visit San Francisco. I’d love it like crazy. When I have a new book coming out, make sure that your friendly local bookstores know that you’d like to see me in the neighborhood, because that’s how book tours come together. I don’t pick the places all by myself.

Poor Jean, can crack a  man’s skull in 5 minutes varying between a thousand ways to do it but can’t bring himself to hurt a little old lady. Jean is precious kay.


Grandma’s got your number, son.

Anonymous said: Hi! I adore your Gentleman Bastards books so much; they have literally everything I love packed in one series. I rec them to pretty much everyone I know. That being said, I saw that someone else asked a question about timelines, and I have one too (after rereading for the fifth time) - the Gray King escaped Camorr when he was thirteen and came back 22 years later. From the description of him and his sisters, I'd assumed they were much older (middle to late forties)

They lived particularly hard lives, even for a hard world. They dedicated themselves to training and to vengeance. Twenty years of that can prematurely age a person, the same as military service or any other physical hardship will.


Anonymous said: Hi Scott! Are we ever going to see more of the wonderful Nazca in flashbacks? I loved seeing her in the Orphan's Moon flashback in Republic of Thieves, and particularly enjoyed her little conversation with Sabetha <3 I'm not sure I've ever had this much love for a character who gets killed off after about 10 pages.

Nazca will be seen at least once more in the ongoing (and final) major sequence of flashbacks in book 5, THE MINISTRY OF NECESSITY.


Anonymous said: Hello Scott. I love your books and had a question regarding worldbuilding. Several times you set the scene in a chapter by stating the day, month, and year. Is the calendar in the GB world (also is there a name for the whole world? I can't remember) the same as ours (i.e, twelve months with an average of 30 days) ? Have you written down all the months and years in the calendar?

Locke’s calendar is nearly the same as ours, just a day or two longer, with twelve months. I have a list of all the Therin months, but have not revealed them. I discussed the Vadran names of the months earlier on this Tumblr.

Requin and Selendri from the Gentlemen Bastards series by scottlynch78I’ve always loved these two and their dangerous superiority &lt;3
I drew them for Scott Lynch since he was coming to Malmö for a book signing. It was today and it was awesome! I met both Lynch himself and Elizabeth Bear, and they were both really sincere and charming, it was a really cool experience! Got my books signed as well! :&gt;


Breathtakingly great stuff. Damn, you people are all so good at things.

Turns out that what I should&#8217;ve said is, &#8220;I don&#8217;t NEED to be a distorting influence on my fandom.&#8221;
