New Megan Lindholm story to be published this year

6 Jan, 2018 filed under: Megan Lindholm, England/UK, US

A new Megan Lindholm story titled Community Service will be published later this year in an anthology titled The Book of Magic. The anthology is edited by Gardner Dozois. The Lindholm story is set in contemporary Tacoma and features a protagonist called Celtsie.

See The Book of Magic in PlentyWiki for detailed information on editions and contents.

While the US edition of this book is not yet listed for preorders online, the UK edition has already been added to amazon.co.uk and has a tentative publication date of October 4th. The tentative cover art posted by Dozois seems to make this a matching pair for last year’s The Book of Swords which included the Six Duchies story Her Father’s Sword.
