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

The Journeyman (excerpt)

There is a new excerpt on BOOK AND STORY PREVIEWS from "The Journeyman: In the Stone House." 

In it, Teodorq sunna Nagarajan and his companion Sammi o' th' Eagles have been captured by the ironmen, who have come down to the lowlands from the great plateau that rims the north of World.  Also captured is Karakalan sunna Vikeram, who has been stalking Teo in vengeance.

Teo and Sammi are being questioned by the Wisdom, advisor to the kospathin of Cliffside Keep.  His niece (the kospathin's daughter) is sitting in. 

This story is done in first draft and is presently being reviewed by yr. obt. svt.  A third Journeyman story, "The Journeyman: Against the Green" is also done and is also awaiting review and revision.

After this, the sciatica having subsided, I am getting back to The Shipwrecks of Time.  Been a long time since we saw Frank, Carol, Wilma, and the Peruzzi Manuscript.
