Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell


This novella is available exclusively in George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois’s Dangerous Women. Two years ago, George asked me at a convention if I’d consider doing a short for one of his anthologies. I was eager to say yes—he and Gardner have a reputation for putting out some of the finest anthologies in the business, and it’s an honor to be invited into one of them.

The resulting novella, called “Shadows for Silence in the Forests of Hell,” is set in the Cosmere but not on any planet you’ve seen before. You can read a short piece of it here. I also talked a bit about my inspiration for this novella here.

In the audiobook version, the narration for this novella is provided by the extremely talented Claudia Black.
