Yay!

Just got sent the Publishers Weekly review of Stories of the Raksura, Vol I:

"Two novellas and two short stories expand the setting of Wells’s dreamlike fantasy novels. In "The Falling World," a vanished envoy triggers a diplomatic crisis between two courts, and investigation reveals a long-forgotten tragedy. "The Tale of Indigo and Cloud" sets two queens against each other, with an unhappy consort as the prize. Familiar characters appear in "The Forest Boy," a prequel to The Cloud Roads that examines a brief encounter between Moon and forest dwellers, and "Adaptation," in which Chime deals with an unwanted transformation and its disquieting implications. Wells is adept at suggesting a long, complex history for her world with economy, and, while her protagonists may not be human as we understand it, they are definitely people, sympathetic figures constrained but not defeated by their environments. Longtime fans and new readers alike will enjoy Wells’s deft touch with characterization and the fantastic." —Publishers Weekly

Yay! It’s coming out September 2, in ebook, trade paperback, and audiobook.

"Familiar characters appear in "The Forest Boy," a prequel to The Cloud Roads that examines a brief encounter between Moon and forest dwellers"

A reappearance of some of the Mirani, perhaps? I had always wondered if Moon would ever see Tren or Lua again.

No, it's actually just a reprint of the original The Forest Boy (or a print, since it only appeared on my web site). But a sequel at some point isn't a bad idea!

Oh right, I had forgotten that that and Adaptation were being thrown in there as well. I must have taken it out of context. I am in full support of the idea of a sequel to The Forest Boy though. :)

Yay for good reviews!

My copy is preordered.

Super pleased to read this good feedback. It's well deserved.
