Novellas and Short Stories
Kelly McCullough recommends
For the Killing of Kings (2018)
(Ring-Sworn Trilogy, book 1)
Howard Andrew Jones
"For the Killing of Kings is a fast, fun swords and sorcery tale in the grand style, but updated for a modern reader. Magic, mayhem, betrayal, reversal, sword fights, court intrigue--this book hits all the right notes and has a great time doing it. Jones' Altenerai are a great addition to the heroic tradition--imagine Mercedes Lackey's heralds recruited from a bar in Fritz Leiber's ?Lankhmar and you'll get something of their flavor. If you enjoy my Fallen Blade books you will find a lot to like in this novel."
Skyborn (2015)
(Seraphim , book 1)
David Dalglish
"Once you pick up Skyborn you won't want to put it down...I expect this series to fly off the shelves."
Stories of the Raksura Volume One (2014)
(Stories of the Raksura, book 1)
Martha Wells
"Martha Wells' Raksura books are dense, and complex, with truly amazing world building, and non-human characters who are quite genuinely alien, yet still comprehensible and sympathetic."
