Titus will awake Gormenghast in 2011

The Guardian reports that another book in the seminal Gormenghast series is to be published in 2011. “Titus Awakes” was taken from notes left by Mervyn Peake byhis widow, Maeve Gilmore, who completed the book before her death which appears to bring the story to a natural conclusion. Sebastian Peake, who has championed his father’s work, comments “[t]he leitmotif of the whole thing is his search for some sort of final home”.

2011 is the centenary of Peake’s birth and sees the publication of a new edition of the original trilogy with 60 extra drawings as well as this novel.
