Thompson, Arianne 'Tex'  
Children of the Drought #1: One Night in Sixes
Elim has heard stories about what wakes at sunset in the border town of Sixes: gunslingers and shapeshifters and ancient animal gods. Elim's so-called partner, lily-white lordling Sil Halfwick, has disappeared inside, hell-bent on making a name for himself among the black-market traders. Elim's worldly station is written in the bastard browns and whites of his cow-spotted face. He'd better find his missing partner fast, because he dare not return home without him. But if he's caught out after dark, Elim risks succumbing to the old and sinister truth in his own flesh - and discovering just how far he'll go to survive the night.

Tolmie, Sarah  
The Stone Boatmen
Three cities, separated by oceans, were lost to one another long ago: the first, the city of rituals, of ceremonies; the second, the city of words, of poetry; and the third, the city of the golden birds, of dreams. In their harbors stand the stone boatmen, pointing outward toward the unknown. Now the birds are fostering a new-found relationship of the three cities, and the voyages of the ship Aphelion and its crew are beginning to rebuild the links.
