The fundraiser I launched last week has raised over six hundred dollars for the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services — $621 to date. Thank you so much to everyone who has participated, whether you bought one book or eight (!). I’m in the process of shipping everything out, which is taking longer than expected due to sheer volume . . . which is excellent news.

“Science is not separate from politics. As much as I would like it to be a pure thing, existing only in some intellectual realm unsullied by human struggle, it will always be entangled with the world we live in.”
Marie Brennan, The Tropic of Serpents

“Matriarchy is a time-honored staple for any writer looking to invent an exotic society.”
Marie Brennan

“I sometimes imagine there is a clerk behind a desk situated between the brain and the mouth. It is his job to examine utterances on their way out, and stamp them with approval or send them back for reconsideration. If such a clerk exists, mine must be very harried and overworked; and on occasion he puts his head down on the desk in despair, letting things pass without so much as a second glance.”
Marie Brennan, In the Labyrinth of Drakes

Thank you so much! There will be another book forthcoming in that world, about Lady Trent's grand-daughter; I am working on it now!


Henrik I just finished Within the Sanctuary of Wings an hour ago, and - realizing the story is over - I felt I had to thank you for the Memoirs of Lady Trent. I stumbled over Natural History of Dragons quite by accident, but the books proved to be a breath of fresh air, and I feel sad known that its over. Still, it was a great experience, one that reinvigorated my own will to write. Thank you for the stories :)


Eileen Thanks so much for adding me...i have quite a few of your books and i cant wait to read them...and when i do you will be the first to know...again thanks for taking the time to add me!

I'm glad to hear it! Hope you enjoy the rest of the series. (There are also some short stories, too, which you can find through my website.)

Moira Russell OMG hello! I bought Midnight for my Kindle, started reading it, and then got the other three books too so I could read them in sequence right away. Plus the novella. Lune is fantastic.
