Bad news, <<First Name>>: I'm told that the upcoming Titan Books anthology Aliens vs. Predator: Ultimate Prey (including my story "Better Luck to Borrow") has been delayed in production, and now probably won't be released until spring of 2022. You can still pre-order now, but it won't be here in time to save Christmas.

There is some good news, though: if you support me on Patreon—for as little as $1 a month—I'll share the first draft of my AVP story with my patrons in December! It's not what was eventually approved by the editors (after a few rounds of notes), but you can see what my original concept was and compare it to the final published version when that comes out.

Meanwhile, on Anarres

Even the dispossessed are not immune to supply chain disruptions: Forest Avenue Press' Dispatches from Anarres, 31 tales in tribute to Ursula K. Le Guin (including my story "Laddie Come Home"), has also been delayed—but only slightly! We're now looking at a November 16th release date. Please consider pre-ordering from your local independent bookstore, and attending one of these launch events:

Publishers Weekly says, "Speculative fiction readers will find much to enjoy in this well-crafted celebration." Register for the virtual launch hosted by Powell's Books!
