Free Fiction Monday: Dix

This week’s Free Fiction Monday is a little different. It’s a way to sample my new Diving novel, Searching for the Fleet, before its publication day on Tuesday, Sept. 18. The novella “Dix,” which was first published in the March/April issue of Asimov’s, follows Yash Zarlengo, an engineer aboard the ship Ivoire, as she tries to cope with the fallout of the accident that caused the Ivoire to be propelled five thousand years in the future. When First Officer Dix does something that shocks Yash to her core, she must put her own life on the line to uncover a threat that could mean the end to everything she knows. 

“Dix,” by Hugo Award-winning author Kristine Kathryn Rusch, is free on this website for one week only.

Novel Excerpt: Bleed Through

I’m extremely pleased to share Bleed Through with you. When I started writing Bleed Through, I thought it was a short story. It shares a lot of features with the shorter mysteries I write. They’re often crime fiction, not cozies or straight noir. To my surprise, Bleed Through became what’s known of as women’s fiction (but don’t let that scare you men).  I finished it, then I would […]
