Fan Art Tuesday: Lightbringer vs. Night Angel Tattoo

Holy crow! Fan Even Ennis commissioned this ASTONISHING Lightbringer v. Night Angel tattoo, featuring Kip and Kylar:

 

 

 

Evan says it took an entire YEAR to complete (uh, not in one sitting, but you get the idea). Major props to Evan and his tattoo artist for having the patience, pain tolerance, and perseverance to make this beauty!

If you’re in Maryland, USA, you can tell Rob Zeinog at Evolved Body Arts that he does spectacular work.

Birthday Crossover Art!

Hi friends! Thanks for sending me your SPECTACULAR Hitchhiker’s Guide/Lightbringer or Night Angel fan art. You each made my 42nd birthday extra-special, and you managed to spark a little joy into our brittle, obsidian hearts.

This one is from Victoria, who asked: “[could Durzo] handle the best drink in existence?  Or if the ka’kari would ruin the full experience? Maybe it’s just me.” 

 

The next [delicious] one is from Deana, who said: “I hope you all enjoy Kip Guile in his Turtle-bear form holding Hellfang.  He’s falling along with petunias made of various luxin colors, including white. I made the turtle-bear of 3 different icing colors, and 2 different fondant colors to make it more dynamic. I hope the Chromeria doesn’t knock me for this. The cake is Devil’s Food, with chocolate filling and luxin color sprinkles, covered in buttercream icing. The “Don’t Panic” letters were drawn freehand with melted candy. Turtleback and flower pot are made of rice-crispy treats covered in icing and fondant.”

 

This one is from Zsuzsi, who said: “So, did you guys know that under the RESTAURANT AT THE END OF THE UNIVERSE, there’s a blue cell with a prisoner inside? And there’s an android called MARVISIA, who has to throw a blue bread down a chute every single day? …It’s a diorama with some discussions. The dolls, the blue cell and the bread are planned and crocheted by me for this mission. But I have to say special thanks to my 4 year old daughter, who did not draw all over my notes. 🙂
Sentences with blue – are from the book Restaurant at the End of the Universe…
Sentences with red – those are from Blinding Knife… well, a bit modified 🙂
Oh, and I know Gavin’s hand is on Blood Forest, but let’s say, he’s pointing at Ru 🙂

 

Next we have this bit of hilarity from Tim:

 

And finally, an excerpt from the short story created by Sophia:

“The Wight in question was the strangest red wight or wight of any color that [Gavin had] ever seen. The halo around its eyes had clearly broken and the red had gushed through, drenching the oddly triangular eyes in an even, scarlet glow. The body was made with a strange kind of silvery luxin. Silver! Gavin had not known about the existence of this metallic silver luxin. It was strange behavior, particularly in a red. Why would a crazy, hot-headed red choose a silver body? And how? Still, its physical aspects were not even the strangest thing about it. That would be the fact that it looked depressed instead of angry and passionate. A red.”

You all are the best. Thank you again!

Throwback Thursday: Night Angel Edition VIII

Here it is, folks: our last look back at NIGHT ANGEL in its nascence.

Now we move on to THE BURNING WHITE.

I’m currently standing RIGHT NEXT next to Brent, staring him down while he tries to type, muttering something about the meaninglessness of life in a soft monotone, in kind of a homage to Persona/Animaniacs. 

Since I’m 5’2″, I’m also standing on a box of copies of THE BLACK PRISM.

Uh-oh.

*runs for her life*

Deal on the Night Angel Omnibus at The Signed Page

Hello fellow Night Angel enthusiasts!

I see you.

Yeah, YOU.

You’re laying on your couch, still in your jammies. A plate of leftovers is on the end table next to you. Uncle Fred is visiting, and he has taken over the recliner and the remote, and is shouting at the television while college students run around on a field tossing a ball to each other. Your Grandma is in the kitchen, talking Mom’s ear off, micromanaging her baking and blasting Mannheim Steamroller. You’re lurking on Reddit and sipping a hot toddie.

You opted out of Black Friday, in a silent protest of conspicuous consumption.

You’re so smart, friend.

You’re also cursing a bit of bad luck you’ve run into, where you missed out on a chance to buy a signed copy of the Astonishing, Spectacular, Resplendent, Death-Defying, Super Special, Blacker-Than-Black, 10th Anniversary Hardcover Night Angel Omnibus.

YOUR LUCK HAS TURNED, YOU LITTLE DICKENS!

The Signed Page is having a weekend sale on signed copies of the omnibus–Friday through Monday. The guys over at The Signed Page package every order with care, ensuring your book arrives in pristine condition. Quantities are limited, so jump on this deal while you can!

Also, a little heads up: Brent is facing the Mother of All Deadlines in the next two weeks, so you’ll have to put up with me here on the website for a bit. Once he has cleared that hurdle, we have some fun things to share with everyone.

The 10th Anniversary Night Angel Hardcover Omnibus

INT. OFFICE – DAY

DPC: Hey, Jefe?

JEFE: (typing intently, not looking away from computer screen) Yeah.

DPC: The omnibus.

JEFE: What about it?

DPC: (beat) It comes out tomorrow.

JEFE: (blinks at DPC, because this is terribly obvious) I know that, CAPS.

DPC: Ten years!

JEFE: Yep.

DPC: (imitating Jeremy Piven in Grosse Pointe Blank) TEN YEARS! TEN!

JEFE: Uh-huh.

(DPC slumps at her desk, scrolls through BRENT WEEKS website)

DPC: We’ve been talking about it a LOT. Like, A LOT A LOT. For months.

JEFE: Your profundity knows no bounds, CAPSLOCK.

DPC: So, um, I just realized something.

(JEFE stops typing and sighs.)

DPC: Like two weeks ago I scheduled a post to go live, thinking we would say, you know, OMG THE NAT OMNI IS HERE Y’ALL IT’S RAINING CONFETTI IN THE STREETS AAAHHHH (CAPSLOCK shakes her head and waggles her arms in a pitiful imitation of Kermit the Frog).

JEFE: I mean, that’s one way to go.

DPC: And then we opened the webstore.

JEFE: I remember… Listen, are you going somewhere with this? Because I have characters to kill off, here.  (gestures to his computer screen)

DPC: I got really busy, Jefe.

(JEFE raises an eyebrow and stares at CAPSLOCK for a moment.)

DPC: Soooooo busy.

JEFE: There’s no post, is there?

DPC: There’s a post! There’s TOTALLY a post! (beat) There’s just… no words in the post.

JEFE: Just write the post, CAPS. (JEFE mutters something about why he pays for an assistant)

BattleWorn Books 2018 Winners

The time has come!

We are about 15 HOURS away from the official release (in the US; UK fans have ~32 hours… And I suppose if you live in a different time zone in the US, 12-14 hours. You get the idea) of the Astonishing, Spectacular, Resplendent, Death-Defying, Super Special, Blacker-Than-Black, 10th Anniversary Hardcover Night Angel Omnibus. *cue [REDACTED] music* (that we didn’t license)

The entries have been examined, contemplated, and discussed. You all have sent your beleaguered books into battle, and not all of them have returned from the fray. They have been well-loved and well read. They have been covered in blood, sweat, and tears (literally, as you’ll see).

Fans the world over have been anxiously anticipating this moment.

Drum roll, please!

 

The five runners-up are below, in no particular order–

Kevin Jones, who posted on Twitter:

“My copies of the Night Angel Trilogy were bought used at my local bookstore and through many rereads and their eventual passing down to my oldest daughter they’ve been through a lot.

Tried to depict Kylar with some of the ka’kari.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jared Stonecypher, who emailed us:

“I wanted to introduce some friends to the Lightbringer Series and Night Angel Trilogy. My Night Angel omnibus made it home safely, but my Black Prism hardback was far from unscathed when it came home. Their dog is a huge bookworm I guess!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blayne McGuire, who posted on Facebook:

Here is my #BattleWornBooks story for the last book in the Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks. This book has survived at least 7 moves, 1 rainstorm in a car with open windows when I was carrying it around while reading it, being loaned out once, and generally being abused during the 5+ times I’ve personally read it while owning it. The 2nd novel gets an honorable mention since it is MIA after being loaned out to an old coworker. So now I just have the 1st and 3rd of the series.

 

 

 

 

 

Aereal McQu, who posted on Facebook:

When your dog gets a hold of book 2 and 3, you only buy a new Shadow’s Edge because you’ve memorized the destroyed bits of Beyond the Shadows.
#BattleWornBooks

 

 

 

 

 

Daryl Duda, who emailed us:

In 2015, 2 friends and myself quit our jobs to set out into the Canadian wilderness to do some survival camping with nothing but around 70 lbs of “things we would take into the apocalypse”.  The only reading material we had were the Night Angel series, and we continually speed read the hell out of them nightly in our hammocks; almost in a competition to finish whichever book you had first so you could berate the guy who had the following novel to hurry the hell up.  There were never more than 2 days between finishes as we were hungry for our entertainment. Not sure to this day what happened to book 1 and I contrasted the old with the new.

 

P.S.  The paperbacks also make a pretty decent pillow if you’re wrapped up tight in a hammock…

 

 

 

 

 

 

And now, the Grand Prize Winner of the 2018 BattleWorn Books Contest:

 

Kellie Speedy, whose book was in a car crash!

A few years ago, I let a good friend borrow a series of books that I love. Not the Wheel of Time, but instead The Night Angel by Brent Weeks. The weekend after I lent the books, he and his girlfriend were in a horrific accident that thankfully both survived. But my books did not. This is my entry to #BattleWornBooks.

(Kellie also mentioned that her friends are both doing spectacularly well, and are expecting their second child in a few months. I have some name ideas, if you’re interested…)

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you all for your fantastic, creative entries this year. I couldn’t ask for a better group of fans!
