News of Me

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

The two most recent books I have out are

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.

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:

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