…which is only available through the Never Before Seen Kickstarter. Provided, of course, we hit a brand new special stretch goal of 140 backers by midnight tomorrow (Tuesday, Pacific Time). The collection includes a never-before-seen Spade/Paladin novella. Never before seen because I finished it just this week. It’s twisty and fun. The collection, The Assorted Conundrums, includes that as well as four other stories.
Here’s the blurb:
Explore the world of science fiction fandom as Secret Master of Fandom and private detective Spade solves crime after crime in this latest collection of stories.
Featuring two of masterful author Kristine Kathryn Rusch’s most popular characters: Spade and Paladin (Spade’s enigmatic sidekick and infamous detective for hire), these delightful stories include “The Really Big Ka-Boom,” “At Witt’s End,” “Unity Con,” “The Case of the Stolen Memories,” and the never-before-published “The Case of the Purloined Pages.”
Find out why Mystery Scene Magazine says: “I hope to read many more stories about Spade and Paladin.”
If you back the Kickstarter, you’ll get the new collection (provided we hit the goal), as well as the author-preferred edition of “The Wedding Ring,” and the six stories that started this whole thing. You’ll also receive two other stretch goal rewards—a collection of my award-winning and award-nominated short fiction, and a fun holiday collection titled Santa And Other Christmas Criminals.
