Author Week #1: Ekaterina Sedia!

I’m glad to introduce a new feature here at the World SF Blog: Author Week, a week-long celebration of an international author. We kick off this week with our first featured author, Ekaterina Sedia. Born and raised in Russia, and now living in the United States, she is the author of novels According to Crow (2005), The Secret History of Moscow (2007), The Alchemy of Stone (2008), and The House of Discarded Dreams (2010). She has also edited the World Fantasy Award winning anthology, Paper Cities (2008), and anthology Running with the Pack (2010).

This week we’ll have an exclusive interview with Sedia; a short story; a review of her latest novel, The House of Discarded Dreams; a guest-post by Sedia; and, finally, a book giveaway!

Three readers can have the chance to win one of Ekaterina Sedia’s books. We have copies available of House of Discarded Dreams, Alchemy of Stone, The Secret History of Moscow and of Running with the Pack. To win one of these, simply leave your name and e-mail address in the comments to this post, as well as specifying which title you would like. Winners will be chosen at random and announced at the end of the week. This post will remain up until then.

We hope you enjoy!

  7. [...] Pirms kāda laika es rakstīju par “Maskavas slepeno vēsturi“. Šodien The World SF Blog ir publicēta interviija ar tās autori un tiek rīkota izloze. Trīs cilvēki laimēs kādu viņas grāmatu. MSS beigās ievietotie abu nākamo romānu sākumi likās gluži interesanti, tā ka es pati arī varētu piedalīties, ja izdomāšu, kuru grāmatu gribētu vairāk. Bet, ja arī grāmatu negribat, tur var uzzināt visu ko jaunu par vēl nedzirdētiem fantastikas un fantāzijas rakstniekiem no dažādām pasaules malām, kā arī lasīt stāstus.
