Last October I posted that Derek Landy wasn't finished with Skulduggery Pleasant after all!
That he was writing a new series, one that didn't yet have a name!
Now the new series (or is it the first book in the new series?) has a name, Skulduggery Pleasant : Resurrection, and an approximate publication date of June 2017.
