I have made no secret about the fact that I love Laura Anne Gilman’s books. So, I when I found out that she planned to Kickstart Cosa Nostradamus stories, I was very happy. Still, despite this, the launch took me by surprise. ( Primarily since I was offline for a couple of days.) I pledged as soon I found out. If you haven’t read Laura Anne Gilman, this is a great place to start.
From the Kickstarter page:
The stories, Miles to Go and Promises to Keep, introduce Danny Hendrickson. He’s a half-breed, very very rare in the Cosa Nostradamus. Human mother, faun father, 100% Attitude. For the most part, he’s made his own way, first as a member of the NYPD and then – when they started looking too closely at non-humans in the force – as a private investigator, straddling the line between human and fatae in his job the way he does in his life
He has a good life, he has good friends, he makes a difference… But he also has a dangerous life. And sometimes – when you’re in the middle of magic – good friends aren’t enough.
Miles to Go: It’s an ordinary day, another ordinary – for Danny – job, when he’s approached by a young woman who has information he needs to solve a case. All she wants to do is help. When a life – or more – are on the line, it’s hard to turn that down. But the cost of that information will change Danny’s life…forever.
Promises to Keep: Following up on the events of MtG, Danny has a boring snoop-and-scoop infidelity case, the kind of thing that pays the bills and keeps everyone fed. But his new – and magical – partner sees something more in the scenario…and what she sees is deadly. To the client – and to them.
