Reviews

A beautifully told story with colorful characters out of epic tradition, a tight and complex plot, and solid pacing. -- Booklist, starred review of On the Razor's Edge

Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary ... the stories will linger after the last page is turned. -- Publisher's Weekly, on Captive Dreams

In the Lion's Mouth

O frabjous day!  Callooh!  Callay! 
The frumious Bandersnatch is slain!
It now remains to dress the carcass.


One man with a dream, at pleasure, 
Shall go forth and conquer a crown; 
And three with a new song’s measure 
Can trample an empire down.
 – Arthur O’Shaughnessy (1844-1881), “We Are the Music Makers”
