I am pleased to announce a novelette acceptance at Beneath Ceaseless Skies. “These Wondrous Sweets” is the fifth in my series featuring the Song Dynasty candy master, Ao.
The Weird West story I co-wrote with K.G. Jewell, “Coachwhip and Wade, Hex-tamers for Hire“, is now up at Orson Scott Card’s InterGalactic Medicine Show (issue 65, October 2018). It features lovely artwork by Nick Greenwood, which has captured all the elements astoundlingly well.
My story, “The Firefly Beast”, is now available in Sword and Sonnet. It is set in the same universe as the Chengdu stories, but set in an earlier dynasty. Check it out!
If you’re looking for a book of strange alien wonders, Costi Gurgu’s RecipeArium is such a work. I was happy to give the following blurb for the book:
Recipearium is a sumptuous chronicle of alien culture and cutthroat intrigue, set in a city in the belly of a gargantuan beast. Gurgu’s novel gives you an exotic, daring banquet that you will not soon forget.
My novelette “That Lingering Sweetness” is now available in Beneath Ceaseless Skies #224, and is a story of Candyman Ao that can be read as a standalone (although it fits into the overarching narrative right after “The Sweetest Skill“).
The audio version is once again read by the great John Meagher, who narrated the previous two adventures of Ao.
