“A Moment Before It Struck” is an original fantasy short story, now available to read free online at Lightspeed Magazine — or you can listen to the audio book version!
“A Moment Before It Struck” is a prequel story to my novel The Dread Hammer, available here at Book View Café.
The story won’t take you long to read; it’s less than 5,000 words, so why not take a look? And do consider buying the ebook edition of Lightspeed Magazine, for an easy-to-read version of all this month’s stories.
Linda Nagata is the Locus and Nebula award winning author of The Bohr Maker, Vast, and Memory, all available at Book View Cafe. Her latest book Hepen the Watcher, is the second in a gritty, fast-paced mythic fantasy series featuring the antihero demon, Smoke.
