Mandala sold

A Fly in Amber

VERY happy about this one. First Novelette. I really love this story, as immodest as that sounds. Sometimes characters become so alive that it doesn't really seem that you own them any more. The bird flies from the nest where it will. Is it a first contact story, a love story, a road story? Echoes of the Odyssey, Jungian psychology and of Niven's World out of Time. If you've never been on a New England winter sleighride, sung Palestrina, or walked a labyrinth, you can. Out in May. Link when I get it.

I'm one of the lucky few to have read a preview of this marvellous story. It was a while ago now, but it has stuck with me. Scott's brief teaser description of some of the events in the book have reminded me how powerful, visual, and inventive this story is.

Do yourself a favour and check out Mandala over at Fly in Amber just as soon as it's released.
