Totally Tor:Songs of the Dying Earth

24 Nov

Got some more news for you from Irene Gallo about the going’s on over at Tor.com. 🙂

First off, I’d love to get my hands on this! (Yes, that’s a hint! 😉 )

The book will be available on the 7th of December (Pre-order from Amazon US here), and Tor is hosting a very special story from the anthology: Kage Baker’s ‘The Green Bird’

Here’s an excerpt of the story for you:

It amused Justice Rhabdion of Kaiin to dispose of malefactors by dropping them down a certain chasm located at the edge of his palace gardens.

Deep and steep-sided the chasm was, bottomed with soft sand, so that more often than not the objects of Justice Rhabdion’s displeasure survived the fall. This was all to the good, as far as Rhabdion was concerned, since it provided him with further subject for mirth. On claret-colored summer afternoons, he used to have his Chair of Office moved out on the balcony that overlooked his garden pleasaunce, and which, incidentally, gave him an excellent view into the chasm as well. There he would smile to watch the antics of the enchasmates, as they fruitlessly sought to escape or quarreled with one another.

Read the full story here.

I really need to read Kage’s work. 😦

On December 1st, Tor.com will be posting Ellen Kushner’s, “The Man with Knives”, which continues on from the events in her novel, Swordpoint.

That’s all for now, hope you all have an awesome day!

Be EPIC!
