Matthew Hughes has accepted an offer to write a fantasy adventure novel set in the world of the roleplaying game Pathfinder. The game company is allied with the publisher Paizo, which this summer is bringing out the trade paperback of Matt's standalone Archonate novel Template (originally published in limited editions by PS Publishing.)
Dave Duncan's new novel Pock's World (his first SF novel since 1991) was released October 2010 by Edge Publishing.
Pock’s World, long settled by humankind, is accused of being infected by humanoid aliens. It has been quarantined and may have to be sterilized. Five people are chosen to go there and examine the evidence: saintly but ruthless Father Andre; Ratty Turnsole, a muckraking reporter ripe for romance; ambitious politician Athena Fimble; manipulative bureaucrat Millie Backet; and shady billionaire Linn Lazuline. Some of them carry grudges - all have their own agendas. Pock’s World surprises them all. Nothing is what they expect. Quickly entangled in love, politics, religion, and deceit, they discover that the clock is already ticking and the fate of humanity itself is at stake.
