SpWeeklyNews (http://www.youtube.com/user/SPWeeklyNews) over on YouTube have posted a video of Derek Landy reading the first chapter of the eagerly awaited Last Stand of Dead Men, the next book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series. Here’s the video:

The video cuts off the end of the chapter but here’s the end of it:

“…who tried to kill who. My days are devoted to my granddaughter and my nights are spent making multiple trips to the toilet. I don’t have time for anyone’s grandson.”
“The Warlock is someone’s grandson?”
“I never said that.”
“Actually, you sort of did.”
“Oh, I see. You’re one of those, are you? You like to play around with words to get to something out of me? Well, it’s not going to work. With age comes wisdom, have you ever heard of that?”
“I did. But I’ve found that wisdom has a high point around a hundred and twenty years. Once you reach that, you’re really wise as you’re going to get.”
“I’m wise enough to say nothing more on the subject.”
“So you know I’m telling the truth.”
“I didn’t say that!”
“The Warlock you spoke of had been hired by the Necromancers to kill. He said he owed them a favor. Why?”
“Why does anyone do anything?”
“What did the Necromancers do for the Warlock? Did they give him something?”

As well as this chapter, don’t forget that I posted another video of Derek Landy reading another chapter from the next book back in May. The blog post with that video can be found here.

Last Stand of Dead Men is due out on 29th August, 2013.

  2. I’m still surprised that my camera held out to film as much of it as it did.
