Gollancz are going to be publishing two interesting sounding novels this December. Check out the blurbs and covers below..
NO LIFE BUT THIS by Anna Sheehan
From the acclaimed author of the bittersweet novel A LONG, LONG SLEEP comes a haunting stand-alone sequel.
In NO LIFE BUT THIS, Rose must take control of her future for the sake of her friends – and find a way to protect them without unwittingly caging them in love…
Rose slept for a hundred years and when she awoke the world as she knew it had vanished, utterly.
She has gone from being a cherished only child to being the sole heir to a vast, interstellar empire. From being alone to being surrounded by friends; from being protected against everything – whether she wanted to be or not – to having others depend upon her.
FISH TALES by Sheri S. Tepper
From one of the masters of science-fiction and fantasy, Sheri S Tepper, FISH TALES is an extraordinary novel.
In her 35th stand-alone novel, science fiction master Sheri S. Tepper boldly weaves together the storylines of eleven of her previous works – from KING’S BLOOD FOUR (1983) to THE WATERS RISING (2010).
In FISH TAILS, two of Tepper’s beloved characters – Abasio and Xulai (A PLAGUE OF ANGELS and THE WATERS RISING) – and their children travel from village to village scattered across the sparsely populated land of Tingawa. They are searching for others who might be interested in adopting their sea-dwelling lifestyle.
