Okay, so I am failing at this one review a month thing, but I have had no time to even think recently. To clear my backlog of interesting links:
An Eugenides fanfic which imagines how a scene in Megan Whalen Turner‘s “Queen of Attolia” could have played out. It’s rare to read a piece of fanfiction that feels just right – I think this one is spot on.
Kelley Armstrong‘s limited-edition novellas for Subterranean Press are also available as ebooks. While “Counterfeit Magic” is still in stock, “Angelic” is out of print and I have never been able to convince myself to pay $25 for a novella. I’ve bought the Kindle editions for both and liked, though they are probably priced slightly on the high side for short stories. Still, probably worth the cash for fans who wanted to read the novellas (that includes me).
And sticking with the ebook novella theme, Jo Beverley has also re-released “The Demon’s Bride”, a Georgian-set story, under Penguin’s eSpecial programme. I’ve bought it, but not have had a chance to read it yet, though I am wondering if I have the original anthology it appeared in (“Moonlit Lovers” according to her website).
