has an excerpt from The Sea Thy Mistress, the conclusion to Elizabeth Bear’s Edda of Burdens trilogy.  I’m reading this right now and I am enjoying it immensely so far.  The books in this trilogy are so beautifully written and I love all the Norse mythology.

Sadly, Sarah Monette’s cat recently passed away.  On February 2, she is holding a memorial fundraiser and the proceeds are going to the University of Wisconsin-Madison Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital’s Animal Companion Fund.  This means she is selling lots of books and she will sign them!  It’s a good chance to both help animals and get some of those Doctrine of Labyrinth books that are unfortunately out of print (she has 10 paperback sets and 2 or 3 copies of each of the individual books in hardcover).  Those aren’t the only books up for sale, either!

Sorry to those who already saw this when I tweeted it last night, but for those who were not on Twitter at the time, here’s an interview with Carol Berg at Galaxy BookshopThe Soul Mirror, the second book in her Collegia Magica trilogy, came out earlier this month – I need to hurry up and read the first one which has been sitting on my “to read soon-ish” pile since the beginning of this month.
