Arrival of the Queen
I've got copies of the paperback edition of Queen of Candesce in my hands at last, and tomorrow you can too! It's quite a gorgeous edition, showing off Stephan Martiniere's artwork to best advantage. It's due to hit the shelves on the 30th, but you can probably find it already.
It helps to have read Sun of Suns before diving into this book--but it's not essential. I wrote QofC as much as a standalone as I could, so even if you haven't tried any of the Virga books yet, you can certainly start with this one.
A great new year's gift to me, to have it show up today.
