Finish line

Hey, guess what!

(Badger butt!)

No, but for real.

You know what those wise men of olde say: “Never release thine book in the midst of thee globale pandemic!” Did we listen? We did not–but well, February held some surprises, didn’t it?

But now! Now! Shimmer: The Best Of can be yours! It’s available in ebook and paperback, and contains 43 stories that cover 13 years of shimmery fiction. With an introduction from Mary Robinette Kowal, who was there from the start! With cover art from Sandro Castelli!
