First Chapter of Wings to the Kingdom

Hey! The first chapter of Cherie Priest's upcoming novel Wings to the Kingdom is up at Apex Science Fiction and Horror. I've gotten a sneak at the whole book and I'm here to tell you that if you enjoyed Cherie's Four and Twenty Blackbirds (and I sure did), this one's gonna knock your socks off, too. And as a bonus, it's got a hell of a first chapter, which you can now sample, you lucky dogs, you. Go! Now!

Also: awesome cover.

Scalzi.com: Now with the power to take down and restore the internet.

I will use this power only for good. And to get paid.

Yay, more Cherie Priest!

Who knew that John Scalzi had the same powers as Gabe?

I can't wait for Wings to the Kingdom. That's the problem with being early readers in a series - you have to wait forever for the next in the series.

Speaking of which, how's The Last Colony coming along?

It's coming along nicely, thanks.
