One of the very best debuts this year is Bitter Seeds by Ian Tregillis. What you haven't bought it yet because you were waffling despite my high praise and that of many, many, others? Well now you can get a taste of this world in a short story set there with "What Doctor Gottlieb Saw." The story focuses on oracle Gretel and her Psychoanalyst, which gives you a little bit deeper of an understanding of the working of Gretel's mind and about a death mentioned in Bitter Seeds that happened before the events of the book. Now we get to fill-in that gab, which is always a nice bonus for those who have read the book. However, the story more than stands on its own and introduces you to the world and some of the main characters well.
"What Doctor Gottlieb Saw" is available from Tor.com on site or in a variety of download formats and definitely delivers the same level of reading pleasure that Bitter Seeds did so well. Tor.com has consistently been publishing some wonderful short fiction so if you haven't visited recently drop on by.
