After three brilliant books – Retributions Falls, Black Lung Captain, Iron Jackal – author Chris Wooding has announced that the fourth outing for the crew of the airship Ketty Jay – The Ace Of Skulls – will be the last.

Sad news but I can see why he would want to do this, better to go out with a collection of books that everyone liked, than go on and on for years and end up spluttering towards an ending that is long overdue.
