Short Story Collection:
Goddesses & Other Stories

November 14th, 2011

Book cover for Goddesses & Other Stories by Linda NagataThanks to some concentrated pressure encouragement from reader Phil Friel I have finally put together a collection of my short stories under the title Goddesses & Other Stories. In the collection you’ll find all of my published short fiction–all ten stories–including the Nebula Award winning novella Goddesses.

Goddesses has been out for a while as a single, but I’ve now replaced that book with the collection, mostly so I could recycle the cover (must be practical).

The new volume contains just over 100,000 words of fiction, with individual pieces varying in length from 3,000 to 32,000 words, all originally published between 1987 and 2000.

So if you’re interested in short fiction–or you just want to have a look at a writer’s early efforts–please consider Goddesses & Other Stories. As of today, the ebook is available at all the Amazon stores and Barnes & Noble. It’ll be available from Book View Café at the imminent launch of the new ebookstore.

And here is a list of included stories:
Spectral Expectations (Analog 1987)
Career Decision (Analog 1988)
In the Tide (Analog 1989)
Small Victories (Analog 1993)
Liberator (The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction 1993)
Old Mother (The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction 1995)
The Bird Catcher’s Children (The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction 1997)

    That’s great news Linda! We all need a bit of pressure/encouragement at times, myself just as much as anyone else, and I reckon it must be a good thing for you to know that there are those of us out here who REALLY want to read these stories.

    I’m just so glad you’ve released this as I’ve only actually managed to find two of your short stories on Now I can get them all in one place.

  2. Linda Says:

    Phil, that knowledge is a very good thing indeed. Thanks for the nudge! I’d been meaning to do this for a long time, but the two single stories were as far as I’d gotten until now.
