Doc Sidhe is Back

Author Aaron Allston posted today on his blog that two of his original novels, Doc Sidhe and Sidhe-Devil, will be getting a new lease on life. Published back in 1995, Doc Sidhe was an interesting spin on the fantasy genre as it meshed elven Irish-Scottish folklore with a modern day setting. Parts of it are very steampunkish, and overall it’s a fun story (you can check out our review here). Aaron is now planning on turning Doc Sidhe and its sequel Sidhe-Devil into eBooks (as well as physical books) with new cover art and a reworking of the writing styles. Right now he’s aiming for a June/July release.
