With impressive THE FOUR PROFOUND WEAVES, R. B. Lemberg’s spins a world of singing gods, desert nomads, and magic humming in the wind
In a STARRED review for FOREWORD, Danielle Ballantyne praises R. B. Lemberg’s forthcoming THE FOUR PROFOUND WEAVES (not due until September, but available for pre-order from your favorite bookseller or direct from Tachyon).
R. B. Lemberg spins a world of singing gods, desert nomads, and magic humming in the wind in THE FOUR PROFOUND WEAVES . . . Impressive world building renders the shifting hues of the desert sands and the cold stone of The Collector’s palace in tight prose. Social structures and customs are relayed with the same deft hand; the free, accepting atmosphere of the desert and its people ends at Iyar’s stifling walls.
ANXIOUS NACHOS includes the book among 30 Days of Pride: The rise of the queer novella.
This book is publishing in September this year and I am very excited to have an ARC for it. This is a trans epic fantasy, set in a world with very strict gender roles and a man who has changed between them and struggles to embody the masculinity required of his new role after years performing the life of a woman.
THERE’S ALWAYS ROOM FOR ONE MORE is excited as well.
September sees the release of the first full-length Birdverse story by Rose Lemberg, which I’m very excited about: The Four Profound Weaves is a desert-set fairytale of identity, death and (obviously) weaving.
