Reviews are beginning to come in for Spirit of All the Russias, and the response to this point has been decidedly positive.  From Long and Short Reviews:

“The exquisitely detailed passages in this story made me feel as if I were standing next to Baba Yaga as she surveys the ruined land that she once knew so well.”

And from Mary Patterson Thornburg (as posted to Facebook, Amazon, & B&N):

“It’s beautifully written, chilling, enchanting, and funny all at once. Like that little hut on chicken legs, it’s much larger on the inside than it seems to be from without.”

Needless to say, I am a happy author this afternoon….

The day has arrived!  My newest Uncial Press ebook, Spirit of All the Russias, is live. The title page calls it a "novel byte"; in practical terms, it's a short story published in ebook format.  Which means (among other things) that it has extremely cool cover art (see below).  Currently, you'll find it at Uncial's Web site and over at ebook-retailer Untreed Reads; it should filter out to Amazon, B&N, and a host of other ebook sellers in the next couple of days. 

(ETA2: As of late Friday night, it's on both Amazon and B&N.  That said, one thing to keep in mind about ebooks published by smaller presses: when you buy directly from the publisher's Web site, you're showing extra support for that author and publisher, who then don't have to share revenue with a third-party vendor.)

 Baba Yaga has long been one of my favorite myth-figures, and I am very happy to see this story out in the world.
