I became a huge fan of Valente when I read Palimpsest, she writes such beautiful story with such wonderful prose. I was excited to see she had another book coming out this year. Then Tor just sent me a link to an excerpt they’ve released from the book. It’s very good and I thought I would share. So here it is: http://www.tor.com/stories/2011/01/excerpt-deathless-by-catherynne-m-valente
Check it out, see if it’s your thing. I know I personally can’t wait to read this book.
