Covers Revealed - Recent and Upcoming Works by DAC Authors


Here are some of the recently released and upcoming works by formerly featured DAC Authors! The year in parentheses is the year the author was featured in the DAC.


Ann Leckie (2013)

Provenance
Orbit, September 26, 2017
Hardcover and eBook, 448 pages

Covers Revealed - Recent and Upcoming Works by DAC Authors
Following her record-breaking debut trilogy, Ann Leckie, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, Arthur C. Clarke and Locus Awards, returns with an enthralling new novel of power, theft, privilege and birthright.

A power-driven young woman has just one chance to secure the status she craves and regain priceless lost artifacts prized by her people. She must free their thief from a prison planet from which no one has ever returned.

Ingray and her charge will return to her home world to find their planet in political turmoil, at the heart of an escalating interstellar conflict. Together, they must make a new plan to salvage Ingray's future, her family, and her world, before they are lost to her for good.



The Imperial Radch Boxed Trilogy: Ancillary Justice, Ancillary Sword, and Ancillary Mercy
Orbit, September 19, 2017
Trade Paperback, 1248 pages

Covers Revealed - Recent and Upcoming Works by DAC Authors
About Ancillary Justice

The only novel ever to win the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards and the first book in Ann Leckie’s New York Times bestselling trilogy.

On a remote, icy planet, the soldier known as Breq is drawing closer to completing her quest.

Once, she was the Justice of Toren – a colossal starship with an artificial intelligence linking thousands of soldiers in the service of the Radch, the empire that conquered the galaxy.

Now, an act of treachery has ripped it all away, leaving her with one fragile human body, unanswered questions, and a burning desire for vengeance.


About Ancillary Sword

The sequel to Ancillary Justice, the only novel to ever win the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Awards and the second book in Ann Leckie’s New York Times bestselling series.

Breq is a soldier who used to be a warship. Once a weapon of conquest controlling thousands of minds, now she has only a single body and serves the emperor.

With a new ship and a troublesome crew, Breq is ordered to go to the only place in the galaxy she would agree to go: to Athoek Station to protect the family of a lieutenant she once knew – a lieutenant she murdered in cold blood


About Ancillary Mercy

Ancillary Mercy is the stunning conclusion to the New York Times bestselling trilogy and winner of the Locus Award for Best Science Fiction Novel.

For a moment, things seemed to be under control for Breq, the soldier who used to be a warship. Then a search of Athoek Station’s slums turns up someone who shouldn’t exist, and a messenger from the mysterious Presger empire arrives, as does Breq’s enemy, the divided and quite possibly insane Anaander Mianaai – ruler of an empire at war with itself.

Breq refuses to flee with her ship and crew, because that would leave the people of Athoek in terrible danger. The odds aren’t good, but that’s never stopped her before.

[Note: the publisher does not provide a description for the boxed set. Description are the publisher's for each volume.]





Cecy Robson (2012)

Of Flame And Light
Weird Girls Flame 1
Cecy Robson, October 18, 2016
Trade Paperback and eBooks, 346 pages

Covers Revealed - Recent and Upcoming Works by DAC Authors
Taran Wird holds the unique ability to conjure fire and lightning. She is mated to Gemini, Second in Command to the Squaw Valley Pack of the Lake Tahoe Region, and the sole werewolf to possess the ability to split into two wolves. And although they are mates, Taran’s insecurities have driven them apart.

Devastated by an injury that left her with a zombie-like limb, Taran struggles to regain command over her magic. But when her arm and her power turn against her, lashing out on those she most loves, she knows she can no longer carry this burden alone. Not that she likes the alternative.

The only way to regain control of her magic is to align and learn from the local coven of witches―the very ones who sought to banish her when she and her three unique sisters first moved to the mystical region. But although Taran is trying, the teachings don’t come easy, and the tasks leave her weak and emotionally shattered.

Yet Taran must learn and learn fast. Time is running out. The fire she once mastered so easily has become her greatest adversary and is now slowly burning her alive . . .





Jamie Sawyer (2016)

The Eternity War: Pariah

Mass Market Paperback and eBook, 480 pages

Covers Revealed - Recent and Upcoming Works by DAC Authors
The first novel in a brand-new series from rising SF star Jamie Sawyer, The Eternity War: Pariah is an action-packed adventure set in the same universe as his acclaimed Lazarus War novels.

The soldiers of the Simulant Operations Programme are mankind’s elite warriors. Veterans of a thousand battles across a hundred worlds, they undertake suicidal missions to protect humanity from the insidious Krell Empire and the mysterious machine race known as the Shard.

Lieutenant Keira Jenkins is an experienced simulant operative and leader of the Jackals, a team of raw recruits keen to taste battle. They soon get their chance when the Black Spiral terrorist network seizes control of a space station.

Yet no amount of training could have prepared the Jackals for the deadly conspiracy they soon find themselves drawn into – a conspiracy that is set to spark a furious new war across the galaxy.

Beth Cato (2014)

Call of Fire
Breath of Earth 2
Harper Voyager, August 15, 2017
Trade Paperback and eBook, 362 pages

What's Up for the DAC Authors, Part 30
At the end of Breath of Earth, Ingrid Carmichael had barely survived the earthquake that devastated San Francisco and almost crippled her with an influx of geomantic energy. With her friends Cy, Lee, and Fenris, she flees north, keenly aware that they are being pursued by Ambassador Blum, a cunning and dangerous woman who wants to use Ingrid’s abilities as the magical means to a devastating end.

Ingrid’s goals are simple: avoid capture that would cause her to be used as a weapon by the combined forces of the United States and Japan in their war against China, and find out more about the god-like powers she inherited from her estranged father. Most of all, she must avoid seismically active places. She doesn’t know what an intake of power will do to her body–or what damage she may unwillingly create. After all, her father was the cause of San Francisco’s obliteration.

A brief stopover in Portland turns disastrous when Lee and Fenris are kidnapped. To find and save her friends, Ingrid must ally with one of the most powerful and mysterious figures in the world: Ambassador Theodore Roosevelt. Their journey together takes them north to Seattle, where Mount Rainier looms over the city. And Ingrid is all too aware that she may prove to be the fuse to alight both the long-dormant volcano…and a war that will sweep the world.

Anthony Ryan (2013)

The Legion of Flame
The Draconis Memoria 2
Ace, June 27, 2017

Empires clash and a fell power stakes its claim in the second in a new series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Raven’s Shadow Trilogy.





Jeff Salyards (2012)

Chains of the Heretic
Bloodsounder's Arc 3
Night Shade Books, February 14, 2017
Trade Paperback, 524 pages
Hardcover and eBook, February 2016

[cover not yet revealed]
The third volume in Jeff Salyards’s gritty, clever, and inventive grimdark fantasy saga.

Emperor Cynead has usurped command of the Memoridons—Tower-controlled memory witches—and consolidated his reign over the Syldoonian Empire. After escaping the capital city of Sunwrack, Captain Braylar Killcoin and his Jackal company evade pursuit across Urglovia, tasked with reaching deposed emperor Thumarr and helping him recapture the throne. Braylar’s sister, Soffjian, rejoins the Jackals and reveals that Commander Darzaak promised her freedom if she agreed to aid them in breaking Cynead’s grip on the other Memoridons and ousting him.

Imperial forces attempt to intercept Braylar’s company before they can reach Thumarr. The Jackals fight through Cynead’s battalions but find themselves trapped along the Godveil. Outmaneuvered and outnumbered, Braylar gambles on some obscure passages that Arki has translated and uses his cursed flail, Bloodsounder, to part the Godveil, leading the Jackals to the other side. There, they encounter the ruins of human civilization, but they also learn that the Deserters who abandoned humanity a millennium ago and created the Veil in their wake are still very much alive. But are they gods? Demons? Monsters?

What Braylar, Soffjian, Arki, and the Jackals discover beyond the Godveil will shake an empire, reshape a map, and irrevocably alter the course of history.
[description from Hardcover]





Sofia Samatar (2013)

The Winged Histories
Small Beer Press, April 11, 2017
Trade Paperback, 337 pages
Hardcover and eBook, March 1, 2016

What's Up for the DAC Authors, Part 30
Using the sword, pen, body, and voice, four women confront a rebellion and the older, stranger threat behind it.

Four women—a soldier, a scholar, a poet, and a socialite—are caught up on opposing sides of a violent rebellion. As war erupts and their loyalties and agendas and ideologies come into conflict, the four fear their lives may pass unrecorded. Using the sword and the pen, the body and the voice, they struggle not just to survive, but to make history.

Here is the much-anticipated companion novel to Sofia Samatar’s World Fantasy Award-winning debut, A Stranger in Olondria. The Winged Histories is the saga of an empire—and a family: their friendships, their enduring love, their arcane and deadly secrets. Samatar asks who makes history, who endures it, and how the turbulence of historical change sweeps over every aspect of a life and over everyone, no matter whether or not they choose to seek it out.


Tender: Stories
Small Beer Press, April 11, 2017
Hardcover and eBook, 256 pages

What's Up for the DAC Authors, Part 30
The first collection of short fiction from a rising star whose stories have been anthologized in the first two volumes of the Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy series and nominated for many awards. Some of Samatar’s weird and tender fabulations spring from her life and her literary studies; some spring from the world, some from the void.





Jamie Sawyer (2016)

Origins
The Lazarus War 3
Orbit, August 30, 2016
Mass Market Paperback and eBook, 464 pages

What's Up for the DAC Authors, Part 30
"A gripping read that moves at warp speed." - Jack Campbell on The Lazarus War: Artefact

For someone who has died and come back as many times as Conrad Harris, the nickname Lazarus is well-deserved. His elite military teams are specialists in death - running suicide missions in simulant bodies to combat the alien race known as the Krell.

But now the Krell Empire has wreaked such devastation that military command is desperate for a new strategy. And Harris and his team are being sent on a mission that could finally turn the tide of the war.

Interview with Jamie Sawyer, author of The Lazarus War Series


Please welcome Jamie Sawyer to The Qwillery as part of the 2016 Debut Author Challenge Interviews. Artefact (The Lazarus War 1) is published in print on February 23rd by Orbit.



Interview with Jamie Sawyer, author of The Lazarus War Series




TQWelcome to The Qwillery. When and why did you start writing?

Jamie:  I have always written but I probably started taking it more seriously in my early twenties. There’s something cathartic about it that I just don’t find with any other creative endeavor. I’ve always written SF because I enjoy creating worlds, and creating characters to live in those worlds.



TQAre you a plotter, a pantser or a hybrid?

Jamie:  I wish that I was a plotter, and it’s popular to say you’re a pantser, but I’m really more of a hybrid. I usually start with a basic plot outline, develop key scenes from there, then just get writing. When I started writing Artefact I didn’t have much more than the introduction, ending and a few of the characters worked out. This way of writing means that my first draft is often a very long way from where I end up, and it makes editing more painful than it should be, but it’s a more organic process. I really wish that I could write out the scene structures and sketch out the novel in more detail like a proper plotter, but I often find characters leading me in directions inconsistent with my original plot!



TQWhat is the most challenging thing for you about writing?

Jamie:  Knowing when to stop. Because of how I make that first draft, even when it has gone off to my publisher my mind is still buzzing with ideas. I’m constantly fretting about how I can change or improve the manuscript… I’ve heard musicians say the same thing about their music – you just can’t ever stand back from it and say “this piece of work is finished”.



TQWhat has influenced your writing?

Jamie:  This is a hard question, because I’ve been influenced by so much! Obvious influences are probably classic SF, like Heinlein’s Starship Troopers, Joe Haldeman’s The Forever War and anything by Arthur C Clarke. I’ve read almost all of the books by these authors; firstly as a youth, but latterly I’ve returned to them in adulthood as well. I’m also influenced by video games, movies and comics – anything that has a good story, and is set within a future environment. I’m a sponge so far as influences go; I think most of them are pretty apparent from my books, but I hope what I’ve written is more than just a combination of my influences.



TQDescribe Artefact in 140 characters or less.

Jamie:  Can I give two descriptions? (TQ:  Yes!)

“A soldier who uses cloned bodies to fight a never-ending war discovers an ancient alien weapon that could turn the tide of the conflict.”

Or…

“A full-on pedal to the floor space adventure with aliens, big guns, starships, an ancient artefact, cold war and a man who just won’t stay dead. Welcome to the War.”



TQTell us something about Artefact that is not found in the book description.

Jamie:  There are two cold wars in Artefact. Firstly, between the Alliance (the good guys of The Lazarus War universe; a future NATO of sorts) and the Directorate (a broad union of eastern Asiatic states, including China and Unified Korea). Secondly, between humanity and the alien Krell. One of the questions I’d ask readers to consider is which enemy is worse? The Krell are responsible for the bigger body count, but the Directorate are human. If we can understand what they do and why they do it, does that make their actions all-the-worse?



TQWhat inspired you to write Artefact? What appeals to you about writing Science Fiction?

Jamie:  I’d probably rely on my answer above about my influences, but to be more specific I wanted to write an exciting, fun science fiction novel that would be something I would want to read. That meant combining all of my favorite ideas: so big aliens, power armor, ancient artefacts and disposable bodies! You can probably trace the heritage of lots of things in the book to their source: for example, Clarke’s Monolith inspired the Artefact.

As to what appeals to me about writing science fiction, it’s the idea that there are no limits. There are no right or wrong answers. The future setting is important, but it’s putting characters into that universe – and watching how they interact with the SF setting, and how it changes their lives – that really excites me.



TQWhat sort of research did you do for Artefact?

Jamie:  I researched space dynamics, including topics like time-dilation. The science provided a backdrop to the wider story though; Artefact isn’t a hard science story, and I’d probably say I’ve placed more emphasis on the adventure aspects than the science. Although it is obviously very far advanced from our present tech, in my mind I also drew parallels between the Western world’s use of drones and the Alliance’s use of simulant technology. I read a lot about how drone pilots can become dysfunctional as a result of prolonged operation, and how the tech can cause psychological damage even though the pilots are never physically at war.



TQWho was the easiest character to write and why? The hardest and why?

Jamie:  The easiest character was probably Captain Conrad Harris (the narrator). He kind of just did his own thing; he’s worn out and jaded, but he has a good heart and will risk everything to protect his team. Harris might get drunk a little too often, and I’m sure that Jenkins (his second in command) would call him “a bit of an asshole”, but basically he’s a good guy.

The most difficult character to write was probably the antagonist, Dr Kellerman. It’s very easy to write an antagonist as basically a Bond villain (especially when he’s bald and gets around in a hover-chair!) but I wanted Kellerman to be a multi-dimensional character. He has reasons for doing what he’s doing, even if the rest of us might think they’re unjustifiable. Kellerman really doesn’t think that he is evil, and by the end of the book hopefully you’ll see how he self-justifies his behavior.

Harris and Kellerman are really reflections of the same principles. They both have tragedy under the surface: but one has decided to take a certain course to correct the loss, whereas the other takes a darker path. I can’t say much more on this without giving away some pretty big plot points, so I’ll stop there!



TQ Which question about Artefact do you wish someone would ask? Ask it and answer it!

Jamie:  Who are the Shard? What do they want with the Krell and with us? Are they really gone?

The answers to these questions, and much more, might be revealed later in The Lazarus War.



TQGive us one or two favorite non-spoilery quotes from Artefact.

Jamie:  “I’m Lazarus. I always come back.” (Captain Conrad Harris, callsign “Lazarus”)



TQ:  What's next?

Jamie:  Well, although Artefact is out in February 2016 in paperback, it has been out for a while on ebook. The sequel to Artefact has already been written, and has been released on ebook too. Called Legion, it’s due for paperback release in May 2016. There was also an ebook novella released in November 2015, called Redemption, which takes the series in a new direction with non-military characters (that one was a lot of fun to write!). I’ve just submitted the copy-edited manuscript of The Lazarus War: Origins – the final book in the series – to my editor, so that will be ready for release in August 2016.

As to where I’m going from there, I’d like to write some more stories in The Lazarus War universe. There’s a lot to explore out there: some of it good, most of it frightening, all of it exciting. I’m currently working on some new ideas for the different directions I could take the ending to the original series. But I’m also considering some story ideas set in completely different universes, so there are a lot of possibilities…



TQThank you for joining us at The Qwillery.

Jamie:  It was a pleasure! Anyone who enjoys Artefact should definitely pick up Legion: things might’ve gotten hot for Harris in Artefact, but they get a whole lot worse in Legion
