Jacqueline Carey News - Santitos at Large

Jacqueline Carey on her website this month has some exciting news for fans of Santa Olivia. She says there will be a sequel, Santitos at Large.
Unfortunately, since my publisher didn't know I was already working on it, secretive writer that I can be, there isn't a slot available in the schedule until Spring/Summer 2011. I'll do my best to make it worth the wait!
Jacqueline also reported that she has a Kushiel novella in the works for the Star-Crossed Lovers anthology edited by Gardner Dozois and George R.R. Martin. The novella is titled "You, and You Alone,"
My novella chronicles the ill-fated love affair between Anafiel Delaunay and Rolande de la Courcel. Many readers have asked for this over the years, and now it's on its way.
Other contributors include Robin Hobb, Cecelia Holland, Yasmine Galenorn, Diana Gabaldon ("A Leaf on the Wind of All Hallows"), Jo Beverley, Carrie Vaughn, Peter S. Beagle as well as Jim Butcher with a Harry Dresden story called "Love Hurts". The anthology will release some time in 2010.

  6. I have loved everything Carey has written, but _Santa Olivia_ is really special. I reread it often and never without awe, and never without that feeling when a narrative grabs you by the neck and shakes, and you can't prevent yourself from tearing up. It is by far the most poignant, direct, plausible, *real* bit of near-future dystopian lit ever committed. I've never before come across a book in which the writer so effortlessly and exactly lays bare the hearts-reality of adolescent love and desire, and adult love and regret. It's a masterpiece.
