I said previously I loved Sarah Rees Brennan‘s tumblr – well, this post* made me crack up. She has a crazy sense of humour. I cannot wait for her new releases this year.
*Unfortunately, it only works if you’ve read her Demon books. Which if you haven’t, you really should. Because I adore them.
I posted previously about enjoying the free Lightspeed & Fantasy Magazine short stories online – they’re also offering (paid) subscriptions that will allow you to get a monthly issue on your ereader, with a exclusive subscribers-only novella. Here’s a free sampler as a taster. I haven’t gotten around to reading this yet, but I’m tempted.
Lois McMaster Bujold‘s released PROTO ZOA, an e-collection of her early short stories – I don’t think I’ve read any of them previously, so yay! And I came across this Catherine Asaro novella on Amazon UK – it’s called THE CITY OF CRIES and is part of her Skolian Empire series apparently. I can’t find much information on it, apart from that it’s also available in this hardback AURORA IN FOUR VOICES, which I kind of want, but it’s $30 for the book AND $30 shipping to the UK?? Sigh.

I shall plop down on the Jamie-love bench with you. The Byron of our time, indeed. LOL.
The BFF one – priceless!
I suggest contacting the publisher of the Asaro anthology (IsFIC Press I think). I did that and they shipped the book to me in New Zealand for US$16 instead. Stephen, the guy I dealt with, was exceedingly helpful.
Oh, good one! Was the book worth it? I’ve caved and bought the e-novella, so I will probably be pondering this for a while longer.
I think it would be. I admit to being a major Asaro fan and so I try to get everything of hers. I already have the stories where they were originally published, but wanted to get the collection as well. There are good stories in it that I think are well worth reading. So yes.
Thanks for that – useful info! I love her stories as well, so am very very tempted now…
I’m definitively going to give Ms Rees Brennan a try this year. It’s a trilogy right?
Yep! I didn’t fall in love with the first one, but the second… well, I was completely hooked.
