S.P. Somtow - The Space Between SpacesI don't normally point people at Amazon, firstly because people know about Amazon already, and also because, well... you know, Amazon. 

But this time I do, because The Space Between Spaces, the latest installment in S.P. Somtow's (a western-culture alias for Somtow Sucharitkul) new Inquestor story, published in chapbooks called Inquestor Tales (the collated novel is to follow later) with additional content, is available for FREE on Amazon! Well, until Feb 21, at least... but even after, these are well worth getting your hands on.

From the blurb:

After 33 years, S.P. Somtow is finally creating a fifth book in the Inquestor universe, the galaxy-spanning science fantasy series that Theodore Sturgeon called "the greatest magnitude of spectacle and color since Olaf Stapledon." The book is being released in a series of installments in pulp-sized magazine format. INQUESTOR TALES No. 4 contains the fourth episode of the novel, bonus reprints of the original version of "The Thirteenth Utopia" and "The Web Dancer", stories incorporated into the tetralogy but never reprinted in their magazine form, a lettercolumn, and other notes and mini-articles from S.P. Somtow as well as from an interview with Czech journalist Tomas Bazika. In this episode, the Finding Bird pursues Tijas and Sajit — but who is fated to become the childsoldier, and who will survive on earth? Meanwhile, two civilizations struggle to coexist on one planet by a tragic bureaucratic blunder.
