Hi folks. Those of you who followed RaceFail 2009 may also be aware of one of its many positive results: Verb Noire, a new small press started up for the purpose of showcasing authors and characters of color in science fiction and fantasy. Well, I’m happy to report that their first novel, The River’s Daughter, is now out! I haven’t read it yet — ordered, but I’ve got a long list of Stuff To Read at the moment — but I wanted to spread the word. Check it out!
