Albion is also one of the earliest known names for the British Isles.

You do make some good points Mith.  It could just be my paranoia, but Vinnypop also brought a good point about the duels which is very much like the Juris Macto.
The duels are also very "Age of Sail" . . .

With respect to the Trim Crystals, perhaps the trim crystals serve the function of a control surface. I suggest this because modern aircraft use a trim control to help hold the various control surfaces in the set position, to make it easier for the pilot, and its not a big leap to say lets just loose the middle man and say the trim crystal provided the function of the control surface . . .

I seriously doubt it will be progress until after Peace Talks is done. I seem to recall seeing a reference to the names of all three of the first books, but I could very easily be wrong. :-)

Hi Folks!

I looked up "Trim" as it relates to aeronautics and based on what I saw, are we certain that the Trim Crystals do not provide the same function for Jim's airships as they do for aircraft today?

You want to go in a particular direction and set the trim crystals and the produce the forces necessary in the airship to move it to the desired orientation, Not that they provide no motive force though so whether you are using the etheric web or the sails, its business as usual. Technically this could compensate for the what is missing when compared to a surface ship.

Well, the "Cone Albion" just doesn't sound right . . .  :D

Or the "Cube Albion" for that matter . . .  ;D

I don't really see the steam punk in Cinder Spires at all the be honest.  It's just.... British.
Oh, its steampunk but Jim isn't hitting you in the face with how steampunk it is! Rock solid story with characters that draw you in!

Awesome! I'm going through the audio book for a second time!

I listened to samples of Euans work on Audible prior to my earlier post and I'm not sure how I feel about his voice. I'll be getting the book first thing on Sept 29th for the first read and then will likely pick up the audio version from Audible for subsequent reads. (Thats what I do with the Dresden books!) If Euan's performance grabs me then I will certainly pick up the rest of the series on audio as they come out. This is what I did with Codex Alera, though I ended up going with only the audio version for the books after book 1. Kate Reading did a good job on the series.

Just checked Amazon and the Audio CD shows Euan Morten as the reader. Not sure who he is, but he seems to be one of the readers for Dune, which I have on audio . . .

Amazon is taking pre-orders for the Audio edition (here in the US) so it is being produced at the very least.  Which distributor in which country might not have settled out yet, but at least it will exist and looks like it will be available at the time of Release.

Amazon lists Penguin Audio as the publisher just like most of the Dresden books, so things look good for an audiobook from Audible . . .

I went to Audible and searched: "The Cinder Spires: the Aeronaut's Windlass". It found THE BOOK (give me the book), so I log into Audible and it says: "We're sorry. Due to publishing rights restrictions, we are not authorized to sell this item in the country where you live." That sucks I cannot pre-order yet, however it does kind of hint that it will be available at some point.
If you want the spectacularly vague page:
Thank you for the link! I tried a search on Audible but nothing came up.

Unfortunately I too got the note about not being available in "in the country where you live". I also noted tha the company that is producing that edition is a UK company so, based on the statement of "rights restriction", I assume that the negotiations for the US edition haven't been completed yet. The fact that a UK version is in the works though bodes well for a US edition!
