Excerpt from Raven Stratagem at Tor.com
 

Raven Stratagem (the sequel to Ninefox Gambit) will be out from Solaris Books on June 13, but hey, why not read ahead?

By the way, the bee-catching trick is real.  I used to go door-to-door in 2nd grade trying to sell bees for a nickel each but for some reason no one ever bought one.

Also, don't try the trick on hornets or wasps!  They're much meaner.
