Alternative Realities has announced some of the authors who’ll be contributing to their forthcoming anthology, Summer’s End, including folks like Sarah Cawkwell, Adrian Tchaikovsky and me.
My contribution, “The Last Song of Iranon”, is a follow-up to my 2014 story, “Mordiggian’s Due”, which appeared in Pulp Mill Press’ Libram Mysterium.

There’s a full itinerary for the tour available, if you’re interested, as well as links to the novels. I heartily recommend that you try them, as well as the rest of Bob’s writing, out post-haste.
