It’s always an auspicious day when we can share news about Kameron Hurley, and today is one of those days, as we show off the new UK cover for The Light Brigade, which we’re publishing on this tiny, green isle.
The novel, which is being published by Saga Press in the US, will be hitting shelves on April 2, 2019.
Here’s the synopsis:
The corporate corps transform their soldiers into light to travel between interplanetary battlegrounds. Most grunts make it in one piece, though some don’t, and others come back… different. Fresh infantry recruit, Dietz, is keen to fight and claim her corporate citizenship, but when she’s busted into light it seems like her combat drops are out of sync with everyone else’s. Is Dietz experiencing the war differently, or is it combat stress bending her mind? As she struggles to untangle her timeline, Dietz glimpses a very different war than in the corporate propaganda – one that needs a hero, or maybe a villain – truth is the first casualty of war.
You can see the lovely new cover over on the SciFiNow website, as well as an interview with Kameron about the book itself. However, keep an eye out for the next issue of SciFiNow magazine – on sale December 14 – which will have the extended cut of Kameron’s interview, plus a physical image of the cover for you to stroke.
