As a taster for the upcoming anthology, Unbound – Tales by Masters of Fantasy, editor Shawn Speakman was kind enough to send me the first page of my story The Hall of the Diamond Queen.
Want more? Unbound is out in e-book on 1st December, features stories by authors much more famous than I am (including Joe Abbercrombie, Jim Butcher and Mark Lawrence to name but three), and can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and Nook. No confirmed release date yet for the hardcover version but Shawn assures me it’s in the works, pre-order from Grim Oak Press.
The ebook version of the new anthology from Grim Oak Press – Unbound – Tales by Masters of Fantasy – is now available fro pre-order on Amazon.com & Amazon.co.uk. Unbound will be released on 1st December and includes my story The Hall of the Diamond Queen (it’s not a Raven’s Shadow story but it does have giant war-eagles and talking velociraptors, if you like that kind of thing).
Here’s the full line-up of contributing authors:
Small Kindnesses by Joe Abercrombie
An Unfortunate Influx of Filipians by Terry Brooks
An Aria for Rangarok – the fifth and final story in the Slab City Blues series – is now available in ebook.
Description – ‘Alex McLeod has a score to settle. Back on the Slab and newly promoted to head of Special Homicide, Alex decides it’s time to finally bring down Mr Mac – his longest-standing enemy and the most powerful criminal kingpin in the Confederation of Autonomous Orbiting States. But, before the hunt can begin he finds himself lumbered with the inconvenient and spectacularly bloody murder of a famous industrialist. A swift but violent resolution to the case raises more questions than it answers and Alex’s inability to tolerate a mystery soon uncovers a far greater threat than he has ever faced before. Ragnarok is coming. To stop it, Alex must call on the help of both friends and foes, as well as placing himself in an alien and hostile environment: it’s time for a return visit to Planet Earth.’
Those new to this series might want to opt for Slab City Blues: The Collected Stories, also released today.
