Wizard’s Tower added, Apex reached, Lethe has a green thumb

    Tags: , , , , , , ,

    Green Thumb: a novellaOut goes the latest issue of Apex Magazine into the world. It has a story and interview with Genevieve Valentine as well as stories by Kat Howard, Marie Brennan, and Nir Yaniv, an article with the best title ever by Jim C. Hines (“Mighty Axes and Beer-Soaked Beards: The Portrayal of Dwarves in Fantasy”) and Lynne M. Thomas’s editorial. If monthly isn’t enough for your magazine fix, don’t forget that every two weeks there’s a new issue of Beneath Ceaseless Skies.

    We’re happy to announce that we have added the first five titles from Wizard’s Tower Press which is run by our pal Cheryl Morgan over in the UK. Get your Ben Jeapes and Juliet McKenna here. Also this week, new titles from those busy bees at Lethe Press, including the fascinating looking Green Thumb by Tom Cardamone where “Mutability blooms in the Florida Keys after the Red War.” Caught my eye.

    Lethe have also published a few very interesting looking anthologies of late:

    What else? The new Locus hasn’t arrived at my house yet, but you can get it instantly in pdf, epub, and mobi. It has interviews with Jack Vance and Ann & Jeff VanderMeer, awards winners, an appreciation of Ray Bradbury by his daughter, and all the usual good stuff.

    In Small Beer Press news it was a great weekend as Delia Sherman’s The Freedom Maze had received its third(!) award, the Mythopoeic, and Karen Lord’s debut novel Redemption in Indigo received its fourth(!!), the Carl Brandon Parallax Award.

    There’s also a new Small Beer Podcast wherein Benjamin Rosenbaum’s “Sense and Sensibility” is read by Dave Thompson, and for those who like apps, Joan Aiken’s lovely “The Sale of Midsummer” is now up for free on Consortium’s free Bookslinger short story app.

    Lastly: there were a few errors in the latest issue of Clarkesworld, so we have uploaded the most recent, corrected edition of issue 71 which is now available to all readers and subscribers in the Library.
