Trolls, anyone?

If you like trolls—and who doesn’t?—you might want to check out another BundleRabbit bundle I’m in, Here be Trolls. Curator A.L. Butcher has assembled six novels and four short stories featuring trolls, including my own short story, “Troll Country.” It’s set in the Yukon because, really, where else would trolls live? I can’t wait to read the other stories in this bundle!

Here’s the write-up:

From nightmare monsters who enjoy dining on children to spiritual mystics in tune with the natural world, from gritty champions to peculiar cooks, from shy hermits to paladin mages—greenskins, trolls, and orcs feature as heroes or as villains in these 10 tales of magic, myth, and mayhem.

And here’s the table of contents:

Midwinter Fae

I’m so very pleased to be part of this new anthology edited by Jamie Ferguson. It features 19 tales of faeries and magic at Midwinter.

On the day of the shortened sun
A battle between two kings has begun. 
The old year dies, and the Oak King rules
We celebrate with logs of Yule! 
But the Holly King is defeated, not dead 
To Caer Arianrhod he heads. 
Until Midsummer, when they battle again 
And the Holly King will once again reign…

It features “Midwinter Run,” my brand new short story, plus stories by Dalye A. Dermatis, Diana Benedict, Leah Cutter, Leslie Claire Walker, Eric Kent Edstrom, Ron Collins, Rei Rosenquist, Karen L. Abrahamson, Deanna Knippling, Anthea Sharp, Deb Logan, T. Thorn Coyle, Jamie Ferguson, Kristine Katherine Rusch, Rebecca Senese, Stefon Mears, Brigid Collins and Alexandra Brandt.

All that, and a gorgeous cover, too!

Aliens Among Us…

Woot! My A’lle Chronicles novel, Backli’s Ford, is part of StoryBundle’s latest bundle: Aliens Among Us.

Here’s what the curators, Allyson Longueira and Dean Wesley Smith, had to say about the bundle:

“Science fiction readers all know that the main theme of all science fiction is the alien among us. Early on, when science fiction was a genre only read by science geeks and kids who built their own telescopes, readers felt that they were the aliens in the larger real world.

School was an alien place, other humans felt alien. Science fiction felt safe.

And science fiction stories and novels helped explain so much of what they were feeling.”

The initial titles in the The Aliens Among Us (minimum $5 to purchase) are:

  • Fiction River: No Humans Allowed edited by John Helfers
  • Fade to Gold by Stefon Mears
  • Backli’s Ford by Marcelle Dube
  • Undermountain by Eric Kent Edstrom

If you pay more than the bonus price of just $15, you get all four of the regular titles, plus six more!

  • The End of the World by Kristine Kathryn Rusch
  • Starburst by Dean Wesley Smith
  • Scifi Motherlode by Robert Jeschonek
  • Rita Longknife – Enemy Unknown by Mike Shepherd
  • Assemblers of Infinity by Kevin J. Anderson and Doug Beason
  • Imposters by Blaze Ward

This bundle is available only for a limited time via storybundle.com/aliens. It allows easy reading on computers, smartphones, and tablets as well as Kindle and other ereaders via file transfer, email, and other methods. You get multiple DRM-free formats (.epub and .mobi) for all books.

In fact, all of the books and stories in this fantastic volume ask that age-old science fiction question in one way or another.
