Woodbridge Press’s first fantasy anthology, Journeys, is out today and, like a Panini sticker book, is the ridiculously low price of 99p for the first week before it reverts to its RRP of… whatever Woodbridge deigns it to be.
My story, A Warm Heart, about a trainee assassin on his first proper assignment who is unwillingly joined by an unexpected companion, takes pride of place as story #8 of the collection of fourteen.
It’s a marvellous collection, but don’t take my word for it. The folks over at Black Gate, who know their wizards from their warlocks when it comes to fantasy, have said that fans of quest fantasy should “rejoice” at the collection; indeed, their reviewer David Coe noted my story for its “startling conclusions”, and that’s good enough for me.
Over the next few days the fourteen authors will be doing a spot of cross promotion, and I’ll be writing a guest post for Juliet McKenna’s blog next week.
Let the Journeys begin!
