This Week on The Book Smugglers:
On Monday, we kick off the week with an Inspirations and Influences essay from our very own A.E. Ash–she talks about her short story, Luminous.
Speaking of Luminous, our second first contact story will be available for free in its entirety on The Book Smugglers! The ebook will be available for sale from most major ebook retailers as well.
On Old School Wednesday, Ana tackles Dealing With Dragons by Patrcia C. Wrede (Thea sidenote: YAY I LOVE THIS SERIES). Plus, we have a giveaway of YA horror novel Trollhunters by Guillermo del Toro & Daniel Kraus.
Thursday, it’s Thea’s turn with a review of the *highly* anticipated new SF novel from Kim Stanley Robinson, Aurora. Plus, we have a cuest post from Max Gladstone talking about his new book, Last First Snow.
On Friday, we close out the week with Ana’s review of Last First Snow over at Kirkus!
PHEW–it’s another busy week! Until tomorrow, we remain…
