8 Oct, 2018 filed under: Megan Lindholm, England/UK, US

The fantasy anthology titled The Book of Magic that was edited by the late Gardner Dozois will finally be published next week. Included is a story by Megan Lindholm called Community Service. This will be our first meeting with Celtsie, a new protagonist who seems to be the one keeping Robin busy at the moment—one of her recent blog entries even mentions Celtsie in relation to writing a novel and planning a map of her world.

Here are the important details: the US edition (amazon, book depository) will be out on the 16th of October.
The UK edition (amazon, book depository) will be out on the 18th of October.
Both geographical editions will be available in hardcover, ebook and audio.
