The Alchemist by Paolo Bacigalupi, published by Windup StoriesA few weeks ago we started selling copies of Tobias S. Buckell‘s fantasy novella, The Executioness and we’re now delighted to be able to offer a paired novella set in the same world: The Alchemist by Paolo Bacigalupi.

“In the paired novellas, The Alchemist and The Executioness, award-winning authors Tobias Buckell and Paolo Bacigalupi explore a shared world where magic is forbidden and its use is rewarded with the axe. A world of glittering memories and a desperate present, where everyone uses a little magic, and someone else always pays the price.”

Check out both novellas at the Robot Trading Company, priced just £1.99 each:
