some might say that the series should be left as it is, but I trust that you'll write a fantastic book again :)
I jumped out a window after I saw this! Fair enough it was on the ground floor, but still... a window's a window. Anyway fair play Derek. Will keep me going until next Summer!😊
I am so excited. You have no idea how excited I am. I started reading Skulduggery in my early years of high school. I basically grew up alongside Val! And now there will be MOAR Skulduggery!? *high pitched screams of delight*
Omg I'm so excited! Everyone's still asleep and I have a feeling I may have woke them up by literally screaming with excitement. It's going to be fantastic!!
doors are for people with no imagination, the window was a good choice.
OH MY GOSH THIS IS THE BEST NEWS EVER THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!! Your books are so important in my life and knowing there's going to be more Skulduggery Pleasant is the most AWESOME THING EVER!!!!
I haven't been able to get into the Demon Road series so more Skulduggery is fantastic news.
I'm so excited now, ahaha :D I can't wait!! ^-^
BEST BIRTHDAY ANNOUNCEMENT EVER! Can't wait to meet you tomorrow Derek. Again. For the 5th time.
All aboard the hype train! Ten books in ten years is a furious pace of writing, Derek. I don't know how you manage it! Congratulations though on the new series.

you have no idea what joy you have brought into my life by writing the Skulduggery Pleasant books and I'm unbelievablyt thankful for that. I've always dreamed of a next book and I cannot believe that my dream is coming true. Thank you so so much! Now I'm startingt to count the days until the book is released - I'm sure it's 100% worth the wait. I cannot believe this! You're absolutely awesome and amazing! A pure god! The god of the writers along queen J.K. Rowling.
I just wanted to say thank you for your wonderful books!
Joyful greetings from a huge fan from Germany!
(I read all your book in English. It's far better than reading them in German!)
....Why must you toy with my emotions in this way, Derek
Oh my God Oh my God Oh my God Oh my God Oh my God I might actually die!!! This is the best thing to ever happen!!!! Eeeeeeeeeeeekkkkkkk!!!! I might die!!
I'm an Australian fan and my friend and I legit screeched when we saw this, I'm crying right now

THIS IS AMAZING. THIS IS WHAT WE LITERALLY SCRATCHED OUT IN HOPES AND DREAMS AND NOW ITS COME BACK.
I cannot believe this, thank you so much this means everything.
OMG YES!!! I JUST ACCIDENTALLY BROKE MY EARPHONES BY JUMPING UP AND I MAY HAVE WOKEN UP EVERYONE IN THIS PREMIER INN BUT YES YES YES!!!
Omg! I'm actually too shocked to feel anything
Definitely come back to Australia, man! Both in the real world and in the book. Convinced a bunch of girls at uni to read the books and now they can't get enough of it, so it'll be pretty awesome to see their faces light up when i tell them the news.
Cheers so much for this though. I didn't get across how cool it was to meet you in Melbourne a few years ago! If you read this and remember shoving a kangaroo in my face (suppose it happens all the time), just gotta say I got into Engineering/Science in the city like I said I would. Just so you know ;)
Best news I have heard in a long time. Cannot tell you how happy to wake up.to this!!!!!!!
@Rhyds your phone deaded you come back to meee! Let us fangirl
Omg!!! This message has made me so happy!!!!! I can't wait to read your next skulduggery book, yay!!!!!!!!
i think it gets better, he said that the the 9th was the end of the "first" series, does this mean another 9 books? this is great
I can't wait!!! The suspense is already killing me, thank you Derek
So, I have been having a pretty low week, but this news has made me so happy... Yay🎉
I just want to be here myself for once to give my sincerest of thank-yous to you, our Golden God, Derek Landy. I am ineffably excited about this new book!!
This was very unexpected. But like, good unexpected. Great unexpected. I wonder if Valerie will be a main character in this one?
( you know he's going to kill someone or everyone so it's actually finished and we stop asking right? )
I have been reading these books since I was 11 and now I'm 19 I'm so so happy that there is a tenth book coming out! Best news ever I love the series so much!

I wonder if this means he'll be breathing life back into the blog.
I love how there was a cover release for American Monsters on the down low with no actual blog post to go with it... and then he pretty much says "ah fuck it, here's another Skulduggery book".
Bruh, just bruh there's no words for this news like (:
What a jammy, suspense keeping, attention seeking whore you are Landy!!
I have been reading since I was 12, a lot of authors, a lot of series and a lot of books. Some emotional books. I never cried.
Derek Landy hands me Skulduggery 8 and 9 and the prick makes me cry! He ruined me!!! I have only gotten out of my book coma that was cause by book 9!!
Be warned Landy, if I shed a tear from book 10 to whatever number, I shall write you in something and kill you horribly and then hit you over the head with a book the next time I see you.
OMG....Thank you thank you thank you Mr Landy, hoping Donegan and Gracious are still alive. All Skulduggery characters are totally awesome, can't wait. Ronnie (age 12)
@DL, when you eventually tour here, make sure to hit up DC!
Can't wait for the best book ever to come out. When it does come out i am going to instantly get it. Skulduggery Pleasant RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I LITERALLY CAN'T EVEN!! Yes! I used that sentence!! These books are my favourite series!! I love, love, LOVE them!!! I'm so happy!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Thank you, Derek for making something that I love so much even BETTER, which I didn't think was possible! I can't wait!!
Um Derek, you should *really* get your fridge checked out...
This post is over. Well, Series 1 of the post anyway...
I saw the email newsletter notification appear & think my 1st thought was "So TDOTL isn't it?" followed by a shrug or 2 and a dry 'hmph', to be honest. I mean, I'm looking forward to it, and you'll probably find me in the obscenely-long queue-mageddon that is a Bluewater Signing.
Part of me wasn't 'that' surprised that TDOTL wasn't completely it, given its loose interpretation of how one goes about a final book in the series - loose ends are tied up, and new ones aren't created - but maybe I'm just being cynical.
For Season 3 of this comment, I'm going to remind you that SPI was NOT released in Sreleased in Summer '07, nay, it was released in APRIL of that year.
Due to nosediving ratings, exceeding my budget, and the cast wanting to move on to other things, I'm using Season 4 of this comment to wrap my coment up
Yeah, but at least Whales is closer to Ireland and England than he ever even got to the US!
You could fit England inside Ohio. It's so tiny.
Yes, but it takes longer to cross England than most foreigners would assume because our roads aren't so great.

I think the best reaction here was my nephew screaming YES I HAVE A HOPEFULLY NOT DEAD AUNT YOU CAN BE A GHOST!
Yes, a lot of excitement is bubbling here. My sister moved home with my niece, nephew, 2 cats, 2 dogs and a female gerbil
Yeah, that's great. My son started to read No. 1 in June. Now he has a lot to read till 2017. Blut he is really excited. It's the only book he is really interested in.
Derek Landy writes the Skulduggery Pleasant series because getting a proper job is so overrated.
