Nalini Singh is working on a new novella, Angel’s Dance, featuring Galen and Jessamey from the Guild Hunter series which is going to be included in a new anthology titled Angels’ Flight. This anthology will include three of Singh’s Guild Hunter novellas – Angels’ Judgment, Angels’ Pawn and the current work in progress Angel’s Dance.

Subterranean Press has unearthed 15 copies of Caitlin Kiernan’s Tales of Pain and Wonder and they are looking for a new home. These are limited edition signed hardcovers, so if you’re a fan, I would head over. Here’s the blurb:
This collection of twenty-two short stories by the author of Daughter of Hounds and Alabaster, originally published in 2000, firmly established Caitlín R. Kiernan as one of the preeminent voices in dark fantasy today. Through a cycle of interconnected narratives, Kiernan unflinchingly explores a surreal world where the fantastic and the mundane are never separated by more than the insubstantial thickness of a shadow. From the murderous backstreets of New Orleans to an abandoned shipyard of the Hudson River, from sun-weary Los Angeles to a maze of dank and forgotten tunnels beneath Manhattan, these stories present a landscape at once alien and undeniably familiar.
Including such acclaimed tales as “Estate” (selected for The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror), “Postcards from the King of Tides” (selected for The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror), “In the Water Works” (the basis of Kiernan’s award-winning second novel, Threshold), and “Tears Seven Times Salt” (to be reprinted in The Century’s Best Horror), Tales of Pain and Wonder is destined to stand as a modern classic of weird and supernatural fiction. This edition includes a new, previously unpublished story, as well as an introduction by Douglas E. Winter and an afterword by Peter Straub.
Authors After Dark is giving away a free room for AAD2012, which I believe is in New Orleans. Ends in September when they start concentrating on AAD12.
