The fine folk over at Golden Gryphon are just about to publish their latest chapbook, Mere, by Robert Reed. I was fortunate enough to get a sneak peek at it, and it’s a worthy addition to their list.

Set in the same universe as Reed’s novel, Marrow, it tells of the unlikely survivor of a failed journey to join the interstellar circuit of the Great Ship, and how that survivor goes well and truly native over some thousands of years, before being faced with her past. It’s odd, touching and disturbing. I’m not sure yet if it’s one of the year’s best, but it’s well worth checking out. Kudos to Gary and Marty for another great job, well done.
