Beneath Ceaseless Skies receives prominent mention from short fiction reviewer Rich Horton in the May issue of Locus:
“Tony Pi‘s “Silk and Shadow” (Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Feb. 26) is a fine romantic fantasy, about Dominin, who has at last prevailed in battle against the Stormlord who killed his father. That victory came at a price: a deal with the notoriously treacherous witch Anansya. Dominin has also fallen in love with Anansya’s apprentice, and that may make the eventual price even higher. All is resolved imaginatively in a well-enacted magical puppet show.
“(And don’t miss the March 12 issue either, which features a fine spooky K. D. Wentworth story, “The Orangery“; and an excellent dark tale of the ravages of war, told effectively from sequential points of view of the participants/victims: “Unrest” by Grace Seybold (a Recommended story)).”
Thanks very much!
