Charles sez, "Naomi Novik's new Temeraire novel, Crucible of Gold, arrives in bookstores this week, accompanied by a stylish video trailer designed to get readers' curiosity piqued and pulses racing. Is that a glimpse of the Inca Empire, you wonder? Why, yes -- yes, it is."
Novik is a wonderful writer and her Temeraire series is a delightful and inventive re-imagining of the Napoleonic Wars, fought with a dragon air-force.
Crucible of Gold by Naomi Novik: book trailer (Thanks, Charles!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
