Miska Corbin vs. the World

We are thrilled to welcome the brilliant Gavin Smith back to the Gollancz Blog. Today, Gavin will introduce us to the unforgettable Miska Corbin and we’ll get to see how she would fare against some of our favourite genre characters.

Who Killed Woodbine Scab? A Short Story by Gavin G. Smith

We are delighted to welcome Gavin G. Smith back to the Gollancz Blog for a special guest post. Gavin returns to the blog with the exclusive short story: Who Killed Woodbine Scab?
