Steven Brust & Skyler White Bring Urban Fantasy to the Streets of Vegas

Tor.com has posted the cover art of the upcoming novel The Incrementalists by Steven Brust & Skyler White.

Here’s the synopsis:

A sharp, original urban fantasy about a near-immortal secret society’s battle to save itself — on the streets of Las Vegas

The Incrementalists — a secret society of two hundred people with an unbroken lineage reaching back forty thousand years. They cheat death, share lives and memories, and communicate with one another across nations, races, and time. They have an epic history, an almost magical memory, and a very modest mission: to make the world better, just a little bit at a time. Their ongoing argument about how to do this is older than most of their individual memories.

Phil, whose personality has stayed stable through more incarnations than anyone else’s, has loved Celeste — and argued with her — for most of the last four hundred years. But now Celeste, recently dead, embittered, and very unstable, has changed the rules — not incrementally, and not for the better. Now the heart of the group must gather in Las Vegas to save the Incrementalists, and maybe the world.

  1. Looks interesting enough to me. Good to see him write Non-Dragaeran as well as Dragaeran fiction.
