Lamentation by Ken Scholes

One of my favourite stories of last years was Summer in Paris, Light from the Sky by Ken Scholes in Clarkesworld magazine. I loved the stopry so much that I’ve been eagerly awaiting the release of Schole’s first novel, which has recently been released in hardback in the States. We may have to wait sometime for a British edition so I don’t know when I will get to review the full thing (hint hint any editors from Tor who might read this…send me an ARC!!) but there is a tasty extract over on Bookspotcentral. Go have a read. I have a feeling Scholes will be someone to watch for anyone who likes great storytelling.

One thought on “Lamentation by Ken Scholes

  1. I got it last night after Ken’s first signing. So far, shaping up to be everything you could expect from Ken’s writing and more. I hope you are able to get hands on a copy soon if you haven’t already.
