Pacific 1: The Successful Misfit as a Theme in Fantasy

Is Schmendrick the Magician endearing because heโ€™s a lovable loser, or is there something else going on? Nerds, geeks, and absent-minded professors abound in the pages of genre literature. What is it about the social misfit that attracts readers and makes them empathize with the protagonist? Are authors and readers self-identifying?

Goodreads Giveaway of Sword of Fire and Sea

Poking my head in here since it looks like Goodreads has approved my giveaway — must have missed the email!

On Halloween entries will close, so get it while it’s hot! Three copies up for grabs.

More news… soon. ๐Ÿ™‚ The game is afoot! Also, in Andovar news, this past week I received the countersigned contract for Shield of Sea and Space, which means: IT’S A TRILOGY!!! Lance of Earth and Sky comes out April 2012, and I turn in Shield in June.

But I know you’re really here for giveaway details. Let’s see if this works!
