An Event with Laura Anne Gilman
LAURA ANNE GILMAN will be signing THE SOUL OF FIRE and THE SHATTERED VINE at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore, 179 Shaftsbury Avenue, WC2H 8JR on Wednesday 30th October from 6 – 7pm.
In The Soul of Fire, book two of the Portals series, Jan has learned that elves are real, our world isn’t safe and that it is up to her to save her boyfriend - and the world - from being englamoured into slavery. Now Jan has a deadline – ten weeks, ten days and ten hours. That’s when the truce ends, and the invasion starts.
The Shattered Vine is the riveting conclusion to Gilman’s dramatic fantasy series of vine, earth, and deceit. Two thousand years ago, a demigod split the world between Vinearts and men of power, setting his heirs, the Washers, to guard the balance. But even Gods fail, and now the Lands Vin are wracked by rumour, revolt, and inexplicable violence. Vineart Jerzy must track the source, accompanied by the only three people he trusts: a trader crippled by a sea monster, a young woman without a place, and a prince who abandoned his people.
LAURA ANNE GILMAN is the author of the popular Cosa Nostradamus novels, and the award-nominated The Vineart Wartrilog, as well as the story collection Dragon Virus. A member of the writers’ digital co-op Book View Cafe, she continues to write and sell short fiction in a variety of genres, selling most recently to Daily Science Fiction and the anthology Dead Man’s Hand.
