Last year around this time, we were getting psyched for Hunger Makes the Wolf, the debut novel from Alex Wells (whom you might know from Shimmer pages as Alex Acks). THIS year, we’re psyched for the sequel, Blood Binds the Pack, wherein everything is turned up to at least eleven. Blood Binds the Pack is out today … Continue reading Psyched For the Sequel

In 2015, Fran Wilde’s Updraft hit shelves and went on to win the Andre Norton Award and the Crompton Crook Award, as well as be nominated for the Nebula. Next week, the series concludes with Horizon (and don’t let us forget the middle volume, Cloudbound, on the Locus Recommended Reading list!).

Shimmer author Kristi DeMeester’s debut novel, Beneath, is out on April 30th from Word Horde. Kristi was kind enough to spend some time with us, pondering scary things and the nature of snakes… Tell us how Beneath came to be. Beneath started while I was in grad school as a very different book. I’d been reading … Continue reading Beneath

Hunger Makes the Wolf

  A new novel hits the shelves today — Hunger Makes the Wolf by Alex Wells. You might not know this name, but this is a Shimmer author in disguise. Alex took the time to tell me about their novel, and this world, both of which I hope you adore as much as we did. And … Continue reading Hunger Makes the Wolf

On its own, a badger may be a small thing, but en masse, badgers can do mighty things. Simply put, we’re bringing you some quality badger goods, and every quarter, we’ll be donating profits to organizations intent on resistance and democracy for all. Badger Josh Storey has contributed some amazing artwork for this project, beginning … Continue reading #resist

New Badgers!

Callooh! Callay! From time to time, we like to shake things up in the badger meadows at Shimmer HQ, and we are delighted that all this latest round of shaking has produced three new badgers. (We cannot say much about the process, but it involves thistles, bourbon, and shooting stars.) We are delighted to introduce … Continue reading New Badgers!

Stay Crazy, Erica L. Satifka

Tue, 16 Aug 2016 14:46:02 +0000

Shimmer has had the pleasure of publishing Erica L. Satifka’s short fiction twice, “We Take the Long View” (Shimmer 21) and “States of Emergency” (Shimmer 26). Today, Erica’s debut novel, STAY CRAZY,  arrives from Apex Book Company, and it’s probably quite unlike anything you’ve ever read — exactly like her short fiction is. Erica dropped … Continue reading Stay Crazy, Erica L. Satifka

Maybe you find yourself thinking, I just don’t eat enough grubs. Maybe you think your day could be improved by yes, more grubs, and lazy stretches in a wide meadow full of soft, long grass. Deep down, you’ve always wanted to be a badger, haven’t you? The good news is: Shimmer would love to add … Continue reading Do You Wanna Be a Badger?
