There’s a new book coming out in early July on all things darkly winged and wickedly intelligent. Of what species, you ask? Speculative fiction, of course! The anthology Corvidae is one of World Weaver Press’s newest hatchlings, a sister anthology to the soon to come Scarecrow, which will include one of my own short stories–stay tuned! Meanwhile, check out the fine feathered cover art and read more about Corvidae below.
In Corvidae birds are born of blood and pain, trickster ravens live up to their names, magpies take human form, blue jays battle evil forces, and choughs become prisoners of war. These stories will take you to the Great War, research facilities, frozen mountaintops, steam-powered worlds, remote forest homes, and deep into fairy tales. One thing is for certain, after reading this anthology, you’ll never look the same way at the corvid outside your window.
Featuring works by Jane Yolen, Mike Allen, C.S.E. Cooney, M.L.D. Curelas, Tim Deal, Megan Engelhardt, Megan Fennell, Adria Laycraft, Kat Otis, Michael S. Pack, Sara Puls, Michael M. Rader, Mark Rapacz, Angela Slatter, Laura VanArendonk Baugh, and Leslie Van Zwol.
Coming July 7, 2015. Add it on Goodreads now!
