New Book, Autumn 2016! Gods of Nabban

I can finally announce this! Gods of Nabban will be coming out from Pyr SF in the autumn of 2016. Gods of Nabban is the fourth novel (and fifth story) set in the world of Blackdog and the Marakand duology of The Leopard and The Lady. It begins not very long after the events at the end of The Lady, and follows Ahjvar and Ghu, soul-wounded assassin and fugitive slave, as Ghu returns to Nabban, the homeland he fled as a boy. Although much in the characters is shaped by what happened to them in Marakand, the story itself moves to the empire of Nabban at the end of the caravan road, and is driven by powers and politics, divine and human, there. Ivah — wizard, scribe, scholar, and now a caravan-mercenary, is in it, and the devil Yeh-Lin, who was, long before, the empress and tyrant of Nabban (and had more recently found gainful employment as a history tutor …)

And Moth gets a look-in too.

    I do not understand why “The Storyteller” can’t be made available for the Kindle so that we Kindle owners can get all the stories set in this world onto our devices. Even publishing it as a Kindle short story (like so many other authors are doing with short stories set in the universes of their series) would be a satisfactory solution for me.
