For Anaea Carlisle – raised on an isolated space station populated solely by women – the world is far too small.  On a salvage mission, she helps rescue a hypermental named Gwydion who challenges everything she thought she knew.  When she flees the station to prevent him from having his memory erased, she finds herself in a brand-new world and struggling to find a home.

Here’s what people are saying:

Duncan has built a fascinating galaxy …

Truly wonderful science fiction should also make the reader take a good hard look at the world around them, and draw some conclusions about it that they might not have drawn otherwise. And this book delivered on that front.

I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and I sincerely hope that Ms. Duncan has a sequel planned, because I would love to spend more time with these characters.

And from Abyss and Apex:

The setup could be hokey and awkward; instead, it’s fascinating. … I’ve been following Lindsey Duncan’s work for years, since she published her first short story with A&A back in 2007. With this book she’s broken out and reached a whole new level. You’re going to want to read this and share it with your friends.

A collection of original arrangements spanning a wide variety of influence from traditional to modern.  The CD includes both instrumental and vocal selections, featuring a predominance of Scottish and Medieval/Renaissance music with several Irish, Welsh and Breton selections.

The title track, Rolling of the Stone, is originally an a cappella song from an old Scots ballad, the “charming” story of a young maid who bewitches her lover from his grave.

Highlights include an arrangement of 13th century German tune Winder Wie Ist, with original English words and harmony part, master-competition air Niel Gow’s Lament For The Death Of His Second Wife, and a rousing and unusual harp rendition of famed fiddler Alasdair Fraser’s Tommy’s Tarbukas.

Reviews for Rolling of the Stone:

This album was a pleasant and unexpected surprise for me as the artist moves from a quiet, reflective harp piece to a ballad sung in a voice startling in its nuance, to traditional and lilting celtic pieces, to a heartbreaking love song, Eriskay Love Lilt, in gaelic and then, surprise!!! Jubilate Deo and Dona Nobis Pacem done in a round — with herself! Color me happy I took a chance on a new artist!

If you love celtic harp, you’ll never tire of the beauty. Think of rustic, grand halls filled with celebrating friends entertained by the artistry of the bard and the harp. Lindsey Duncan is creative in her adaptations of music not usually played on the harp, and yet talented in the finest tradition of Scottish techniques. – JH Raichyk, Dectiri Publishing


The Naming Braid

Really an outstanding issue. I don’t think there are any weak pieces in this, but I’m writing this review TamingtheWealdmonths after having read the issue and the pieces that live on in memory as truly superior are … Lindsey Duncan’s The Naming Braid … ­- Sabrina Vourvoulias
