Speculative Fiction from Around the World

Aliette de Bodard’s Servant of the Underworld released in the US!

With all the excitement yesterday, we didn’t even realise it was Aliette de Bodard’s US release day!

Aliette’s first novel, Servant of the Underworld, published by Angry Robot Books, is now available across the United States.

Year One-Knife, Tenochtitlan – the capital of the Aztecs. The end of the world is kept at bay only by the magic of human sacrifice. A priestess disappears from an empty room drenched in blood. Acatl, high priest, must find her, or break the boundaries between the worlds of the living and the dead. But how do you find someone, living or dead, in a world where blood sacrifices are an everyday occurrence and the very gods stalk the streets?

Congratulations, Aliette!

Aliette is a contributor to The Apex Book of World SF (now under a special sale for blog readers!) and launches our weekly fiction feature with her story Mélanie.
