Katharine Kerr

…spent her childhood in a Great Lakes industrial city and her adolescence in Southern California, whence she fled to the San Francisco Bay Area just in time to join a number of the Revolutions then in progress. After fleeing those in turn, she became a professional story-teller and an amateur skeptic, who regards all True Believers with a jaundiced eye, even those who true-believe in Science. An inveterate loafer, baseball addict, and rock and roll fan, she begrudgingly spares time to write novels, including the Deverry series of historical fantasies or fantastical histories, depending on your point of view. She lives near San Francisco with her husband of many years and some cats.

Old Secrets Wake.

Art student Maya Cantescu has always had secrets to keep — her mysterious disease that has turned her into something like a vampire, her father’s obsession with ritual magic, her own talents for the occult.

Polar City Blues

Polar City Blues by Katharine Kerr


by Katharine Kerr
$4.99 (Novel) ISBN 978-1-61138-063-7

“In some ways Polar City Blues is my tribute to the classic SF I read as a teenager. In other ways, it’s a heavily Revisionist book, where the Hero is female and the Object of Desire is male. Mostly, however, it’s a fast-paced adventure story complete with dead bodies, hookers, drugs, mysterious aliens, and several high-speed chases both on the ground and elsewhere.”
