Today sees the release of The Voices of Martyrs by Maurice Broaddus, a must-read short story collection from one of today's must-read genre authors. I've long been a fan of Maurice's writings and was thrilled to blurb the book.
Here's what I wrote:
An outcast in the distant past struggling to survive. A religious captain rationalizing away the evil of the slave ship he commands. A future biomech warrior in a literal culture war. The stories in The Voices of Martyrs again prove why Maurice Broaddus is one of the most exciting writers of today's genre fiction. His vision spans space and time while staying grounded in the stories — in the very voices — which make us fully and tragically and hopefully human.
Go read this collection. And do yourself a favor and buy a print copy. Rosarium Publishing does beautiful design work and printing and The Voices of Martyrs is one of those books where you'll enjoy the stories, enjoy the book itself, and be oh-so-happy with the entire reading experience.
