In three weeks, Solaris is due to publish the latest book in the After the War series: THE TALES OF CATT & FISHER! Edited by Justina Robson, it’s a collection of stand-alone stories starring characters that appeared elsewhere in the series. Featuring a story by Freda Warrington, it’s published by Solaris in North America (December 1st) and in the UK (December 3rd). Here’s the synopsis…

Four new tales of Doctors Catt and Fisher…

Scholars, shopkeepers, collectors… aficionados. Obtainers of rare antiquities; relic hunters who can’t resist a lead, even when it takes them into terrible danger. There’s always an opportunity to be found amid the confusion, in the wake of the terrible Kinslayer War. There’s always a deal to be done, a tomb to open, a precious thing to… obtain.

From encounters with the monstrous Vathesk to exploring new worlds; from wielding great power to do great good, to unearthing dark things best left lost. If you need the experts, if you can find your way to their Cherivell shop, maybe you can hire Doctors Catt and Fisher.

The collection also features stories by Adrian Tchaikovsky, Juliet E. McKenna, and K.T. Davies. Justina Robson also wrote the second novel in the series, SALVATION’S FIRE.

Freda is also the author of the acclaimed Blood Wine series, published in the UK and North America by Titan Books and Audible
