Teaser Tuesday post for 24 May 2016
from The Firebrand by Marion Zimmer Bradley

They stood in the rain in a huddled group, hugging each other, listening to it hiss down on the bushes.  That was what she remembered best:   the sound of the rain and their own shared silence and a vague sorrow that Eddie was not there with them.

He was about to turn away when something caught his eye: a cement cylinder with a heavy steel cap on the top.  Morlock holes, Ben used to call them, laughing with his mouth but not quite laughing with his eyes.

Whatever it was, it came to me in the night, left its talisman...and then disappeared.

Tied to my reading lamp was a single balloon.

His face uttered a strange smile which said that, while he didn't believe anything so silly, he believed it completely.

Richie understood.

Teaser Tuesday: Riverrun (The Riverrun Trilogy, book 1) (again)

Teaser Tuesday post for 1 March 2016
from Riverrun (The Riverrun Trilogy, book 1) by S.P. Somtow

I'm standing right by the prow with the marble in my hand and I guess I'm kind of piloting, even though this path is so well worn that the fleet meets no resistance from the reality stream.

"Well... it was high fantasy when you abducted me, and now it's kind of a homey space epic," I day.  "Or the cover of one of those old pulp magazines."
