Stargate Monuments

The Cloud Roads available for preorder

The Cloud Roads is now available for preorder, at least at a few online retailers. It's going to be released also as an eBook, but I don't think you can preorder eBooks, can you? I have no idea.

Anyway, preorders are very helpful, so if you feel inclined, please do. It'll be showing up in more spots the closer it gets to March, the release date, when it'll be arriving at bookstores.

I've put the first chapter as a teaser below the cut, plus the current preorder links. (Everything is also on my web site here.) And here's the lovely cover blurb by Sharon Shinn:

Martha Wells' books always make me remember why I love to read. In The Cloud Roads, she invents yet another rich and astonishingly detailed setting, where many races and cultures uneasily co-exist in a world constantly threatened by soulless predators. But the vivid world-building and nonstop action really serve as a backdrop for the heart of the novel--the universal human themes of loneliness, loss, and the powerful drive to find somewhere to belong.
