I’m behindhand in crossposting. Here’s the latest column over at Tor.com:
I’ve been waiting for a follow-up to Amanda Downum’s Kingdom of Dust for years. Downum’s first three novels, The Drowning City, The Bone Palace, and Kingdom of Dust were rich, detailed works involving plenty of magic and even more intrigue. Now she’s published The Poison Court, an excellent novel of murder and palace intrigue, and it’s every bit as good as I’d been hoping for.
Reviewed over at Tor.com.
Two books from Solaris
Courtesy of Solaris, Amanda Downum’s DREAMS OF SHREDS AND TATTERS, and E.E. Richardson’s DISTURBED EARTH.
This is a book that’s coming from Solaris next May. A few weeks ago, Amanda and I (we’ve been acquainted for years) were joking about starting a blogger-author feud over it when it comes out.
But you know, it’s just too pretty. I can’t really imagine feuding over anything that’s quite that pretty…
Dreams of Shreds and Tatters by Amanda Downum, forthcoming from Solaris Books.
I talk about their books over at Tor.com:
Amanda Downum’s Necromancer Chronicles;
Django Wexler’s THE SHADOW THRONE.
I have also received review copies. An electronic review copy of KALEIDOSCOPE, a YA anthology, and a paper copy of Paul Kincaid’s CALL AND RESPONSE to review for Strange Horizons.
Sweet godless heavens, so much work.
