Next week Martha Wells’ newest novel The Siren Depths will be out. This is the third book in the Books of the Raksura series. Within the last couple weeks I’ve dived into the series and have been swept away by the storytelling and the characters. If you’re looking for a new fantasy series to check out, this one is well worth a try. Click here to read our full review of the first book in the series, The Cloud Roads.

New Fiction From Allston on the Horizon

Aaron Allston posted a new blog update today with info on a couple of short stories he’s completed. Unfortunately both anthologies will be a bit hard to obtain. First up is “Defenders of Beeman County” which will be included in the Rayguns Over Texas sci-fi anthology which will be sold at LoneStarCon 3 in San Antonio, Texas in 2013. The anthology will have 20 short stories all done by authors in Texas. Editor Richard Klaw has posted some of the featured authors and their stories here.

The second story is “Green Room”, a superhero story set in the Strike Force universe. It’s set to be a part of the Time-Traveled Tales follow up anthology at Origins Game Fair. According to Allston this “is the first story I’ve written in which most of the narrative consists of two old men sitting in recliners arguing with one another. No, really.”

If you’re a die hard Allston fan, then good luck in tracking down these two anthologies when they come out.
