Show Trial

Back in September, I went to Germany for as the guest of honor for Elstercon in Leipzig.  I took time on that trip to visit Nuremberg for research on a book.  The book isn’t done; it’s still percolating.  But the first short story from that trip–a novella, actually–has just appeared.

The story is called “Show Trial,” and it’s online for free in the current issue of Subterranean Magazine.  You can read the entire story here.

If you want to read the posts about Nuremberg, there are three of them, but this one is the relevant one to the story.  You can find the others if you click the “travel” link.

Also, I’ve been noodling around in this made-up World War II world for some time now, and writing stories that will eventually inform the novel.  WMG has just published a collection of them, including the Nuremberg story I wrote before I got to Nuremberg.  You’ll see some similarities, but the approach is very different.  The collection is called The War And After: Five Stories of Magic and Revenge.  You can get it on Kindle, Barnes & Noble, Smashwords, and in other e-bookstores.
