New Upcoming Fiction

06.05.15 | Comment?

This week, for a change, some short stories / novellas. Both these books have content from some popular series: Dorothy Must Die, and the Old Kingdom series by Garth Nix.

Dorothy Must Die: stories, D. M. Paige. Have you read Dorothy Must Die yet? We are told it is excellent! Particularly, probably, if you are sick of Dorothy being the hero of the Wizard of Oz. Good news for fans: Danielle Paige has produced a collection of three related stories: ‘No Place Like Oz’, ‘The Witch Must Burn’, ‘The Wizard Returns’. We see that the next book in the series is due for publication in 2017: these might fill a very small piece of the gap.

To Hold the Bridge: a Tale of the Old Kingdom and other stories, Garth Nix. “Far to the north of the magical Old Kingdom, the Greenwash Bridge Company has been building a bridge for almost a hundred years. It is not an easy task, for many dangers threaten the bridge builders, from nomad raiders to Free Magic sorcerers. Despite the danger, Morghan wants nothing more than to join the Bridge Company as a cadet. But the company takes only the best, the most skillful Charter mages, and trains them hard, for the night might come when only a single young cadet must hold the bridge against many foes. Will Morghan be that cadet? Also included in this remarkable collection are eighteen short stories that showcase Nix’s versatility as he adds a fantastical twist on an array of genres including science fiction, paranormal, realistic fiction, mystery, and adventure.” (goodreads.com)
