On Monday October 8th Eclipse Online will launch with, “The Contrary Gardener” by Christopher Rowe.
Christopher Rowe has published more than twenty short stories, and been a finalist for the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy, and Theodore Sturgeon Awards. His work has been frequently reprinted, translated into a half-dozen languages around the world, and praised by the New York Times Book Review. His story “Another Word For Map is Faith” made the long list in the 2007 Best American Short Stories volume, and his early fiction was collected in a chapbook, Bittersweet Creek and Other Stories, by Small Beer Press. His Forgotten Realms novel, Sandstorm, was published in 2010 by Wizards of the Coast. He is currently pursuing an MFA in writing at the Bluegrass Writers Studio of Eastern Kentucky University and is hard at work on Sarah Across America, a new novel about maps, megafauna, and other obsessions. He lives in a hundred-year-old house in Lexington, Kentucky, with his wife, novelist Gwenda Bond, and their pets.
Then on Monday October 22nd Eclipse Online will bring you, “One Little Room an Everywhere” by K. J. Parker.
K.J. Parker was born long ago and far away, worked as a coin dealer, a dogsbody in an auction house and a lawyer, and has so far published thirteen novels, two novellas and a gaggle of short stories, including the Fencer, Scavenger, and Engineer trilogies, as well as standalone novels The Company, The Folding Knife, The Hammer, and Sharps, and novellas Purple and Black and Blue and Gold. Married to a lawyer and living in the south west of England, K.J. Parker is a mediocre stockman and forester, a barely competent carpenter, blacksmith and machinist, a two-left-footed fencer, lacklustre archer, utility-grade armourer, accomplished textile worker and crack shot. K.J. Parker is not K.J. Parker’s real name. However, if K.J. Parker were to tell you K.J. Parker’s real name, it wouldn’t mean anything to you.
To maintain the levels of awesome, Eclipse Online will also have brand new stories from Eleanor Arnason, Nina Kiriki Hoffman, Christopher Barzak and Lavi Tidhar all coming up before the end of the year.
