You can now purchase the 61-page novella, ‘Prisoners of the Action‘, as a Kindle ebook on Amazon.co.uk.
Kim co-wrote this story with Paul McAuley, and it was first published in The Del Ray Book of Fantasy & Science Fiction, edited by Ellen Datlow. The cover is by artist, and academy-award winner, Dave Elsey.
Here’s the summary:
The invasion of Earth has been defeated. Alien prisoners-of-war are being interrogated in an air base on a remote tropical island. But as Captain Franklin Dice soon discovers, in this cross between a maximum security prison and a summer camp for mad scientists, it isn’t easy to work out who is really in charge.
Any word on when we might be able to get it in the US store?
It should be on the US store now. Paul McAuley is looking after this, and he reports we’ve had some US sales.
Awesome! Here’s the link in the US store, in case anyone else is looking for it: http://www.amazon.com/Prisoners-of-the-Action-ebook/dp/B009033MIA/ref=sr_1_9?s=digital-text&ie=UTF8&qid=1346166011&sr=1-9&keywords=kim+newman
Luddite that I am, will there be a print edition of this story at any stage?
