Stargate Monuments

(no subject)

krismosby just commented with this on an older entry, and I wanted to make sure people saw it:

Thought you might like this cover artwork from the upcoming "Dossouye" book: http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a222/krstoo/covercolor123copy.jpg
The artist is Mshindo Kuumba I

This is "Dossouye" by Charles Saunders, author of the Imaro books. I read his Dossouye story way back when it was in "Amazons" (edited by Jessica Amanda Salmonson). I think I was in high school at the time and really starving for stories about strong female characters, and this was perfect. It's about a woman warrior, set in an ancient Africa with magic and living mythology, and if you like fantasy set in exotic locations and kick-ass heroines, this is for you. If anyone knows when it's coming out, let me know.
