News of Me

I have some new people following, so hello new people!

The two most recent books I have out are

storiesvolii250.jpg
a novella collection: Stories of the Raksura vol II: The Dead City & The Dark Earth Below in ebook, trade paperback, and audiobook.

"The Raksura world features innovative and alien creatures; Wells thinks far outside the humanoid fantasy box. The line between animal and person is drawn extremely thin, and the power structure among the races resembles nature more than it resembles any human civilization. With a strong sense of adventure, horror, and mystery, this is an enjoyable read for fantasy fans seeking a new series to sample."
- Publishers Weekly

Martha Wells continues her Raksura series with another collection of novellas and shorter works. If you've never read the original trilogy (beginning with Cloud Roads), this is a fine introduction, but you really owe it to yourself to read them all. It's quite unlike anything else in the genre -- with a core cast of non-human characters, it creates an entirely fresh, matriarchal fantasy world with its own biology, ecology, technology, and magic.
- Barnes & Noble's New Book Round-up

an ebook-only story collection: Between Worlds: the Collected Ile-Rien and Cineth Stories which contains a new prequel story to The Death of the Necromancer

There's a review of the collection at Skiffy and Fanty.

* Everything I've published is available in ebook and almost everything in audiobook.

* There's a wiki for the Raksura books, The Three Worlds Traveler's Guide, here: http://www.marthawells.com/wiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

* And the first three Books of the Raksura are available in an ebook compilation here: Kindle, Nook, and Kobo.

Thank you for all of your stories, by the way. I get so much joy/thrill/contentment from them!

Just wanted to give you a heads up that your work has come up several times among favourite fantasy books written by female authors in the survey currently going on at the r/Fantasy subreddit :) https://www.reddit.com/r/Fantasy/comments/3d61ja/come_cast_your_vote_for_the_alltime_top_rfantasy/

I tried leaving a comment with a link, but it was marked as spam. Just wanted to give you a heads up that the r/Fantasy subreddit is currently doing a survey of people's favourite fantasy novels written by female authors, and your name has come up a few times. :)

Thank you for letting me know! That's nice to hear. (and I unspammed your first comment)

WorldCon in Spokane in August

Martha, do you know if you are going yet? I live only a couple hours from Spokane and thinking about going, but couldn't afford more than a day trip and would hate to miss you if you were planning on being there, and I picked the wrong day...

Re: WorldCon in Spokane in August

Yes, I am going! And I'll be posting my final schedule probably in a week or so, after I get back from ArmadilloCon. Right now I have a reading on Friday but a panel and koffee klatch thing on Saturday.

Re: WorldCon in Spokane in August

Yay! :) Is the reading and koffee klatch at the ArmadilloCon or WorldCon?

Re: WorldCon in Spokane in August

It's at WorldCon. (I need to be more clear on that -- too many conventions happening too close together!)

Re: WorldCon in Spokane in August

Excellent! I know I can get that Friday off. Hope to see you there!
