The Southern Reach Trilogy


The release schedule of the SRT is pretty interesting. A trilogy with all three parts in a calendar year – which surely beats waiting for the 3rd book in the Kingkiller Chronicles. It helps that each is a short novel, and that the three could conceivably have been released as one volume.

Aside from John Scalzi, who else is trying something new with release schedules, and segmenting a larger work into episodic chunks, each with a different timbre? It’s rumoured that True Detective will focus on a different set of characters each season, so what will the link between season be, aside from the name? The vibe, the setting, the fictional universe it inhabits?
