Originally titled The Red: First Light, Linda’s novel was initially published in 2013 by her company, Mythic Island Press LLC, with the ebook edition being sold through Book View Café’s ebook store. It became the first self-published novel to be nominated for a Nebula award, and was also nominated for the John W. Campbell Memorial award, and included on the Locus Recommended Reading List. This year, it’s on Publishers Weekly’s list of Best Summer Books 2015.
The Red was withdrawn from sale last year after rights to the series were purchased by Joe Monti, editor of Simon & Schuster’s new imprint, Saga Press. But it’s available again! Saga Press has released simultaneous hardcover, paperback, and ebook editions. Audible has released an audiobook edition narrated by Kevin T. Collins.
