Walk, don’t run, to your local Amazon store and download Schuyler Hernstrom’s latest work. Mortu and Kyrus rocks. It’s as good as anything he’s written, and contains some major twists that make discussions of the book difficult without ruining the surprise. Which is a shame, because this is a story well worth talking about. I’ll have a full review over at the Castalia House blog soonish. For now, all you need to know is that this novella is a glorious mashup of Mad Max, Dying Earth, Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.
You’ve got until Friday, and then I’m dropping a blog post here with all the bombshells spelled out, and just the title of that post will ruin a whopping big mystery within the story. You’ve been warned.
