Laura Anne Gilman’s SILVER ON THE ROAD, launching The Devil’s West series, the story of a sixteen-year-old growing up in the Devil’s Territory, west of the newly-formed United States, who makes a fateful decision when she signs a contract with the Master of the Territory, and is sent, unprepared, with only a stranger as her companion, into a land where natives and newcomers have an uneasy truce, demons and magicians battle in the crossroads, and only the most desperate settlers try to make a home, to Joe Monti at Saga Press/Simon & Schuster, in a three-book deal, for publication in Fall 2015, by Barry Goldblatt at Barry Goldblatt Literary(World English).
