Last day to vote! My story "The Inaccessibility of Heaven" is up for Best Novelette. I'd be delighted if you voted for it! uncannymagazine.com/article/… It's a meaningful story to me--said it before but it was the 1st story I finished after my difficult divorce dried up the word supply

If you enjoyed Winter's Orbit and vote in the Goodreads Choice awards then it's apparently in there? In Debut and SF categories? *waves hands* Honestly it's STACKED with books I would be very happy to see win (@shelleypchan! @ryka_aoki! murderbot!!) - SF and F are great reclists
Replying to @shelleypchan
She Who Became the Sun is also up for Best Debut Novel, in some seriously fine company! (shoutout to my bud @Av_Stories for joining me in repping adult SFF!) goodreads.com/choiceawards/b…

I'm not reading because deadline but I was sick and I accidentally inhaled a book: The Book Eaters by @Blind_Nycteris is incredible.

"Out on the Yorkshire Moors lives a secret line of people for whom books are food" - GREAT CONCEPT. In this world is Devon, who was born in a family where girls are pampered and controlled, but whose child is born a monster - so she breaks with her family and goes on the run.

The story is basically her frantic, ruthless escape attempt across the UK, interspersed with backstory revelations, and was SO compelling I kept picking it up even when I was pretty sick.

Two side notes: a) as a Brit I really enjoyed the anchoring in a time and place that felt real and recognisable. b) the prose is TOP notch. I was so stressed it took me until the end of the book to realise this, but it really is. Dean can WRITE.

in case you need a hint: they are not.
Two years ago, Csorwe & Shuthmili risked the anger of the wizard Belthandros Sethennai to gain their freedom. They think they're prepared for anything—but are they? We're thrilled to reveal the cover of #TheThousandEyes by @AKLarkwood, sequel to #TheUnspokenName, out 2/15/22!

“How am I the most sensible pilot in this household?” Kiem said. “How did that happen?” “I don’t know what you mean,” Jainan said mildly. “I’m sensible.” - WINTER’S ORBIT by @Av_Stories (Everina Maxwell) [Close-ups and notes in the thread!]

I was lucky to read an advance copy of Afrofuturist space saga Sweep of Stars by Maurice Broaddus - pitched as Black Panther meets the Expanse and definitely that epic, look out for that in 2022!

Under The Whispering Door by @tjklune was a heartwarming (almost slice-of-life? except with plot) story about grief and love and passing on, hopeful but with a lot of depth. An excellent read for the autumn weather...
