More fine praise in Locus from short fiction reviewer Rich Horton, this time in the June issue:

Beneath Ceaseless Skies, which published four more fine stories in April. I’ll mention two: Marie Brennan’s “Driftwood” is set in her curious universe where different worlds crash together eventually to disappear – here we meet a woman who has somehow survived the death of her world for centuries. And Saladin Ahmed, in “Where Virtue Lives”, introduces a promising series in telling of a ghul hunter and a young dervish who becomes his apprentice. The action of the story (rescuing a woman kidnapped by ghuls) is fine if routine, but the main characters’ interaction is enjoyable and bodes well for further pieces.

Thanks very much!
