Fantastic Defenders Released

Worlds Enough: Fantastic Defenders Fantastic Defenders is the first volume of a new SF/Fantasy anthology called Worlds Enough, co-edited by myself and Donna Royston. The book was released today, just in time for next week’s planned launch at Balticon.

Here’s the back cover blurb for the anthology…

Across astounding and magical worlds, five heroes step forward to defend against magical threats:

  • A sorceress in a besieged city faces a malignant force even more dangerous than the city’s would-be conquerors.

  • An unassuming bureaucrat stumbles upon a threat to a vast empire and deals with it in his own inimitable fashion.

  • A resourceful bodyguard for an infant princess, trapped and surrounded by merciless assassins, finds a unique way to hold them at bay.

  • A mage press-ganged into the Royal Navy finds himself volunteered for a dangerous secret mission on foreign soil.

  • A disgraced royal guardian who failed in protecting his king hunts down those who cost him his honor.

These are the…FANTASTIC DEFENDERS!

Martin Wilsey Interviewed Me…

David Keener at the Washington DC Cherry Blossom FestivalMartin Wilsey, author of the Solstice 31 trilogy, was kind enough to feature an interview with me on his blog. He does a regular “Fast Friday Interview” feature where he runs interviews with fellow indie writers. You can find my interview on his web site right now.

In the interview, I talk about things like how I became a writer, as well as my mutant writing method that STILL has all of the other folks in my writing group shaking their heads in bemusement. PLUS, I talk about some of my upcoming projects, which I’m really excited about.

So, that’s right, go over to Marty’s site and check out the interview. And, hey, thanks, Marty! I had a lot of fun participating.

Balticon Schedule

The Program Schedule for Balticon 51 has just been released. I’m pleased to announce that they’ve selected me for six panels, two of which I’m moderating, and also elected for me to conduct a workshop on Sunday.

My workshop is called: “Is Your Setting Strong Enough to Support a Series?” For those who have taken my previous workshops, it was previously known as “Creating an Adaptive Setting.” I last ran the workshop at Capclave in 2015, so I’m looking forward to conducting it for a whole bunch of new people.

Here’s my Balticon Schedule:
