(First, apologies for this post being a little late — due to some health issues, my computer time had to be limited this week. The Book of the Month for December will be posted tomorrow, December 7, and then the regular blog schedule will resume, except for skipping the Member Spotlight on December 25.)
Welcome to our newest member Jenora Feuer!
In short stories, Renee Carter Hall’s “The First Winter” appeared in a special bear-themed flash fiction episode of Podcastle, Carmen K. Welsh, Jr’s short story “Night Sounds” is in issue 9 of Prick of the Spindle, Tarl “Voice” Hoch has a story in Will of the Alpha 3 (in the company of several other FWG members), and Mary E. Lowd has new fiction in Ember, Daily Science Fiction, and Luna Station Quarterly.
In novels, Baumarius has just released Victernus; Paul Kidd’s second GeneStorm novel, Fort Dandelion, is now available; and as of this posting, T. S. McNally’s novel Light: A Tale of the Magical Creatures of Zudukii is free on Kindle (through tomorrow).
