Now that it’s a new year, Tor.com has relaunched their ambitious novella publishing program with their 2016 titles, starting with Emily Foster’s The Drowning Eyes, released early this week. They’ll be publishing roughly a title a week for the next few months, an extremely impressive schedule — especially considering the authors they’ve got on deck.
Next week is Patchwerk from David Tallerman, author of the Tales of Easie Damasco trilogy (Giant Thief, Crown Thief, Prince Thief), and many short stories published at Clarkesworld, Lightspeed, Bull Spec, and Beneath Ceaseless Skies. Patchwerk follows the adventures of Dran Florrian, a scientist carrying a device capable of destroying worlds… and his desperate flight from those who want to use it for their own purposes.
We’ve previously covered a dozen Tor.com novellas; see the complete list below.
