Overview

Paper Golem's ALEMBICAL series is dedicated to providing a home for novellas of speculative fiction.
"Schoen and Dorrance have found three authors who nail it perfectly."--from PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review.
"A hat trick of delightful stories from Pi, Levine, and Cheney. A three-pack of novella goodness. A menage a trois of... um... well, let's just say all three stories were engaging, original, and a pleasure to read." --Jim C. Hines, author of THE MERMAID'S MADNESS.
"Prepare to be drawn in, prepare to be amazed, and prepare to meet characters as unforgettable as their settings. A remarkable collection!" --Julie E. Czerneda, author of The Clan Chronicles.
"The novella hits its stride in ALEMBICAL 2, which offers engrossing tales from three powerful writing talents. A must-read for any lover of speculative fiction." --Rebecca Moesta, New York Times bestselling author.
"From Pi's shapeshifting antiquities thief in modern London, to Levine's far-future astronaut clone who finds himself paying for sins he doesn't remember committing, to Cheney's fair folk in turn of the century Saratoga Springs, each novella portrays a complete and well-realized world, with engaging characters and great story-telling." --Martha Wells, author of The Fall of Ile-Rien trilogy

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
According to Walter H. Hunt’s introduction, the novella is the hardest form to get right, but editors Schoen and Dorrance have found three authors who nail it perfectly. In Tony Pi’s “The Paragon Lure,” an immortal thief investigates an elegant and occasionally nerve-racking mystery about a flawless pearl. David D. Levine packs powerful emotion into “Second Chance,” a tale of resurrected scientists in a space research station that has lost touch with Earth. In J. Kathleen Cheney’s “Iron Shoes,” a handsome young male of the Fair Folk is either the greatest problem or the greatest hope for Imogen, a half-fae in danger of losing her home. Cheney’s narrative lingers while the others are faster-paced, but all three have plenty of story for readers to sink their teeth into. (June)
