Two-book deal with Knopf

OK, here is the official media alert re the shenanigans that have been going on for the past few weeks in the US. From Angela Namoi at Allen & Unwin:
I'm pleased to announce that we've just concluded a very good two-book auction for Margo Lanagan's new collection, RED SPIKES, combined with her as yet unwritten novel. The ultimate winner was the Knopf imprint of Random House ... Knopf plans to publish RED SPIKES in August 2007, and the novel in April 2008.
My US editor will be Nancy Siscoe, and Jill Grinberg of Jill Grinberg Literary Management managed the auction—beautifully!

So, no pressure on the novel, then. :)

Yay you! And yay for us Americans as well. Now we can get our greedy little mitts on more of your work! Of course, this won't stop me from acquiring an Oz copy...
