happy release day

Today is the offiical release day for....

The mass market edition of Elizabeth Bear's Ink and Steel: A Novel of the Promethean Age.

"[A] sensitive and sensual look at the two supreme playwrights of the English Renaissance.” --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Bear takes a period that is famously a maze of intrigue and treachery, adds more of each to the mix, and comes up with a fine story that even a mere mortal may follow. Her take on the apparent inconsistencies in the lives of  Marlowe and Shakespeare is certainly no less far-fetched than some that purport to be scholarly. A damn fine reimagining of history and legend." --Booklist
