OK, no, I’m not really going to keep the clickbait headlines up.
No proper post tonight, because I’ve spent my writing time working on a thing Simon Bucher-Jones asked me to do. That will hopefully be up in a little while, once I’ve finished it (if he likes it. It’s… grown a bit from the original brief. If he doesn’t, I’ll post it here).
So today, you get links.
The Locksley Exploit, by Philip Purser-Hallard (the second volume of the Devices trilogy) is out today as an ebook, though so far only on Google Play. Buy it.
Abigail Nussbaum links to her Hugo ballot choices for short fiction. I’m going to read all these, especially the novelettes and novellas, to see if there’s anything that can go in my own nominations.
