Gardner Dozois has announced The Book of Magic, his newest anthology forthcoming from Random House, and a follow up to his earlier The Book of Swords.
Gardner has been kind enough to ask me a while back to write a brand-new Gorel of Goliris story for the earlier anthology – and now I’m delighted to say I will have another Gorel story in The Book of Magic. It’s called “Widow Maker”, and takes place chronologically a little earlier than “Waterfalling” in The Book of Swords.
(Also: I get to be in an anthology with TIM POWERS!).
(Also: Gardner’s been kind enough to let me write a third Gorel story. Details TBA!)
Anyhow, here’s the cover and full Table of Contents!
