The Raven And The Reindeer
"Do you have a name?” asked Gerta. “I do,” said the raven. Gerta waited. The raven fluffed its beard. “I am the Sound of Mouse Bones Crunching Under the Hooves of God.” Gerta blinked a few times. “That’s…quite a name.” “I made it myself,” said the raven, preening. “I stole the very shiniest words and hoarded them all up until they made something worth having. ‘Sound’ and 'God’ were particularly well-guarded. 'Crunching’ I found in a squirrel nest, though." — The Raven & The Reindeer, T. Kingfisher My new book is out today! It&
Wow, thank you!
Thanks to Sylvester71 for the Core Membership gift! And I hope everybody has a great end of the year. 2016 careens toward us at breakneck pace...
So hey, I wrote a book! Another one, anyway! It's a collection of fairy-tale retellings I've written over the years, plus an all-new never-before-seen novella called "Boar & Apples." (Think Snow White. With talking truffle pigs instead of dwarves.) As always with my stuff that's not for kids, it's under my pen-name, T. Kingfisher, so that parents do not hastily buy kids a book and not realize that this is a book full of weird and occasionally scary dark things. You can check it out at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Smashwords, etc. Links to places to buy a copy or read a sample
Well, as some of you may recall, way back last year I was fooling around with making a game on the StoryNexus engine, put out by Failbetter Games. (They do Fallen London.) They announced a few months ago that they're not going to be developing for it any longer, because they're very busy and there's no money in it. And I am entirely sympathetic to this, and understand their reasoning. But--the downside--I probably won't be pursuing this game any longer because once the maker stops supporting it, stuff gets tricky. But y'know, I put a crapload of work into the world and I love it very much and I would like people to be able to see it. Act O
