Today is the offiical release day for….
The mass market edition of Elizabeth Bear’s Ink and Steel: A Novel of the Promethean Age.
“[A] sensitive and sensual look at the two supreme playwrights of the English Renaissance.” –Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Bear takes a period that is famously a maze of intrigue and treachery, adds more of each to the mix, and comes up with a fine story that even a mere mortal may follow. Her take on the apparent inconsistencies in the lives of Marlowe and Shakespeare is certainly no less far-fetched than some that purport to be scholarly. A damn fine reimagining of history and legend.” –Booklist
