Hippos overrun the southern U.S. of 1890, causing mayhem and abetting revenge in Sarah Gailey’s debut novella River of Teeth, out this week from Tor.com Publishing.
And they’ll be back this fall.
Tor.com Publishing is happy to reveal Richard Anderson’s cover to Taste of Marrow, the sequel to the rollicking adventure River of Teeth!
A few months ago, Winslow Houndstooth put together the damnedest crew of outlaws, assassins, cons, and saboteurs on either side of the Harriet for a history-changing caper.
Songs are sung of their exploits, many with the haunting refrain: “And not a soul escaped alive.”
In the aftermath of the Harriet catastrophe, that crew has scattered to the winds. Some hunt the missing lovers they refuse to believe have died. Others band together to protect a precious infant and a peaceful future. All of them struggle with who they’ve become after a long life of theft, murder, deception, and general disinterest in the strictures of the law.
Taste of Marrow by Sarah Gailey is out September 12, 2017.
