Last year I mentioned that Michael Z. Williamson, friend to Miss D. and myself in both meatspace and cyberspace, well-known author, and all-around good guy, was preparing a volume of stories about Kendra Pacelli’s sword, made famous in his breakout novel, ‘Freehold‘. Mike was kind enough to invite me to be one of the contributors.
I’m very glad to be able to tell you that the new volume, ‘Forged in Blood‘, is now available for pre-order on Amazon.com. It’ll be published by Baen Books in September. The initial edition will be in hardcover, with e-book and paperback to follow.
I’m still “Squeeeee!”-ing in delight at being included among the authors in this compilation. I had a lot of fun writing my story. Readers familiar with my African background will doubtless recognize several familiar touches. I’m currently enjoying reading the stories by the other contributors as I join them in the pre-publication edit, to make sure that all mistakes have been dealt with.
I think you’ll like this book. History, science fiction and a touch of fantasy, all in one volume.
