So I’ve been back from my trip for a bit. I did read a serval novellas while traveling though I wish I could have read even more. And since I’ve been back I’ve found some time to read a few more things online. So I have many recs to share with you all. I hope you enjoy!

A Portrait of the Desert in Personages of Power by Rose Lemberg Part I Part II Audio So I bit of had trouble getting into this and keeping the characters straight. Probable didn't help that I was jettlaged. However once I got into it I really enjoyed it. Some very beautiful writing, interesting characters and cool world building. It definitely nice to learn more about how magic works in the Birdverse. Also the main character is non-binary so worth checking out if you are looking for more representation. (content note: sadomasochism)

Humanity for Beginners by Faith Mudge (Not free) This cute and fun f/f werewolf romance is set at a British bed and breakfast which means lots of fun cooking details. Also features found family.

Penric's Fox by Lois McMaster Bujold (not free) The most recent installment of Bujolds Penric novella, but takes place before the two volumes published before it. A fun mystery featuring lots of cool magic. I think it would stand alone well.

“Avi Cantor Has Six Months To Live” by Sacha Lamb This story featuring a romance between two trans boys is super cute! Avi the title character is Jewish, and I liked how he struggled with not being able to do all the Jewish things he wanted. (I’ve been their it’s hard to be Jewish without a community)

“Across Pack Ice, a Fire” By Marissa Lingen As I’ve said many times before I love Marissa Lingen’s attention to the details of everyday life which really make this story about power and revenge shine.

Have you been reading any short fiction recently?
