#FridayReads for April 30th, 2021 - Gemworld special!


For this week's Friday Reads, my pick is Fran Wilde's Gemworld which comprises both novellas and short stories. I've been thinking about Gemworld lately because earlier this year, Fran Wilde tweeted that she has written a third novella set in this story-verse.

Gemworld is a place where gems are not just beautiful and valuable, but have powers and even minds of their own. In the old days, it was a kingdom where peace was

"...maintained by Jewels and Lapidaries, people bound to singing gemstones with the power to reshape hills, move rivers, and warp minds."

There are two short stories at Beneath Ceaseless Skies:

And there are two novellas published by TOR.com:

This novella is both beautiful and devastating. As soon as I finished reading it, I wanted to read more: more about Fran Wilde’s gemworld, more about gems calling to people, controlling them, seducing them even from the mines beneath the ground; more about the people listening and speaking to those gems, binding them in settings and chains. It’s that kind of story: the kind of fantasy tale that shows you a dazzling glimpse of a different world, and leaves you wanting more.

 I love these stories and novellas so much, and I can't wait to read more from Gemworld.
