  • The Labyrinth of Flame by Courtney Schafer Guest Post on Strong Finishes by Courtney Schafer

    Today I’m delighted to welcome Courtney Schafer back to the blog! Her debut novel, The Whitefire Crossing, was quite enjoyable, and her second book, The Tainted City, was even better with its deeper exploration of the world and characters—and the way it kept me turning the pages! I loved this book, and I’ve been eagerly anticipating the conclusion to Dev and Kiran’s story, The Labyrinth of Flame. That’s why I’m so glad there is currently a Kickstarter in progress for […]

  • Master of Plagues by E. L. Tettensor Guest Post: Sympathy for the Devil by E. L. Tettensor

    Today I’m happy to welcome E. L. Tettensor as part of the Master of Plagues blog tour! Master of Plagues, the second Nicolas Lenoir novel following Darkwalker, will be released on February 3. While I haven’t yet read these books, I’m quite curious about them—especially after reading reviews of Darkwalker at Bookworm Blues and Not Yet Read and this interview with the author at The BiblioSanctum in which she discussed Nicolas Lenoir as an antihero. Since this aspect of the […]

  • The Moonshawl by Storm Constantine Guest Post: Storm Constantine on Inspirations for Wraeththu

    Today I’m thrilled to celebrate the release of Storm Constantine’s latest Wraeththu Mythos novel with a guest post by her! The books in the original Wraeththu trilogy are among my favorite books of all time due to the beautiful writing, memorable characters, and the thoughtful examination of a world in which humanity was being replaced by a new androgynous people. While I haven’t yet gotten caught up on all these books, what I’ve read of the Wraeththu Histories are also […]

  • Stories of the Raksura: Volume One by Martha Wells Guest Post: Martha Wells Recommends Older Science Fiction Books

    Today’s post for Sci-Fi Month is by fantasy and science fiction author Martha Wells. She’s written the Nebula-nominated novel The Death of the Necromancer, Wheel of the Infinite, Star Wars: Razor’s Edge, Stargate Atlantis: Reliquary, Stargate Atlantis: Entanglement, and much more. My introduction to her work was the first of the Books of the Raksura, The Cloud Roads, and I was immediately drawn in by the story of Moon, a young shapeshifter separated from the rest of his people. The […]

  • Radiant by Karina Sumner-Smith Guest Post: Karina Sumner-Smith on Hope and Wonder in Science Fiction

    This month’s first official Sci-Fi Month post here is by Karina Sumner-Smith, author of the Towers Trilogy. I recently finished reading Radiant, the first book in the trilogy, and am now glad the other two books in the series will be released next year! Radiant is unique with some beautiful writing, and I also loved the friendship that developed between Xhea and Shai (like Karina Sumner-Smith I would love to read more SF/F books with great friendships between women). She’s […]
