Tourbillon has acquired an official production title of Pinion. That makes the three book arc:
  • Mainspring (Tor, 2007)

  • Escapement (Tor, 2008)

  • Pinion (Tor, 2010)

And so we rock on.

Makes me pine for better days, when my feathers were whole, instead of made up of extra bits.

Sigh. I liked the name Tourbillon. It just sounds classy. The feather reference is what I initially construct as well.
Ah well, it will be grand reading nonetheless.

I agree.

Nonetheless, I'll be getting a copy when it comes out in 2010.

So... of the three, is Mainspring the only one that kept the originally concieved title? Or did that one get changed, too?

Actually, it changed from a longer, clunkier title, but it always had the word "Mainspring" in the title.

How funny! I think that was Bear's working title for Dust.

It's a fine name, which must be why so many fine authors keep wanting to use it!

I still would have preferred Stemwinder over Escapement for the second book, but I think the change from Tourbillon to Pinion is a great one. I'm glad stillsostrange was kind enough to give her blessing to the endeavor.
