For those of you who weren't Hugo nominators last year or where too shy to ask the author for a reading copy you can now buy The Citadel of Weeping Pearls by Aliette de Bodard as stand alone novella. More info at the author's website.

This was one of my favorite Novellas of 2015. I wrote: "Set in De Bodard’s Xuya universe this story features a variety of complex characters trying to understand the disappearance of the Citadel of Weeping Pearls 30 years ago. I love de Bodard’s worldbuilding, especially the food details. I also enjoyed seeing the characters through eachother’s eyes. (This is very loosely a sequel to On a Red Station, Drifting but could be read on its own and doesn’t really spoil anything.)"

Also I recently read "FINITY" by Elaine Atwell and enjoyed it. It's bittersweet story set on colony space ship, and musing on the human condition. (The story is published by Giganotosaurus so pretty long.)
