* A Fantasy Miscellany: Short Fiction Saturday: Martha Wells
I mentioned 'Death of the Necromancer' in my recent post on 5 books you should be reading now, so this was a great bit of timing. And seriously, as much as I love Nicholas and Madeleine; Reynard is my favorite character out of 'Death of the Necromancer'. He's delightful, with an urbane wit and charm that I adore. Plus, he is one of the first really well-drawn gay characters I can remember encountering. So the idea of him taking front and center, even if just for one story, makes me very happy.

* Gideon by Alex Gordon
...uncanny and frightening events start Lauren on a trip to find her roots, along with the power to combat an evil spirit that has terrorized Gideon since 1836. Crisp and shiveringly disturbing prose, a solid plot, and well-developed characters all make for a deeply satisfying read. -Publishers Weekly

* Foxglove Summer by Ben Aaronovitch
Fifth book in the Rivers of London series. I've already read it, because I got the British edition when it came out a couple of months ago, and I loved it.

* Hero by Alethea Kontis
Rough-and-tumble Saturday Woodcutter thinks she's the only one of her sisters without any magic—until the day she accidentally conjures an ocean in the backyard. With her sword in tow, Saturday sets sail on a pirate ship, only to find herself kidnapped and whisked off to the top of the world. Is Saturday powerful enough to kill the mountain witch who holds her captive and save the world from sure destruction? And, as she wonders grumpily, "Did romance have to be part of the adventure?" As in Enchanted, readers will revel in the fragments of fairy tales that embellish this action-packed story of adventure and, yes, romance.

Lots of good stuff on here

* Indegogo: The Graveyard of Empires
This is the third book in the Eden Kane series of erotic adventure novels that began with Sky Pirates of the Rio Grande and continued in Queen of the Sky Frontier. Now the epic story moves into high gear with this concluding chapter!

* Storify: LONG Tweetversation on women, SFF, UF, YA, and bias
This is one of those conversations that's made me realize I was really stupid not to use initials or a male penname when I started writing the Raksura books.


* Consumer Reports: Arsenic in rice test data prompt FDA to recommend diversifying grains in diet a lot of gluten-free products use rice flour, which also has this problem.
