IGMS is subscription-based and allows access to all the back issues, so if you missed two of my previous stories (“We Who Steal Faces” in #22 and “Tekkai Exhales His Avatar” in #11), you can read them at the same time. Enjoy!
So I was at Ad Astra over the weekend and had a great time. This sketch of me is courtesy of Howard Tayler of Schlock Mercenary fame, whom I sat with during the autograph session. Thanks, Howard! I also sat with Ed Greenwood, and we chatted about the Forgotten Realms and novel-writing. Ed’s also a co-editor on WHEN THE HERO COMES HOME with Gabrielle Harbowy.
The amazing artwork above is by Jin Han. I share this issue with some great authors:
“Love, Cayce” by Marie Brennan
“Exodus Tides” by Aliette de Bodard
“Exiles in Eden” by Brad Torgersen
“The Long Way Home” by David Lubar
There’s more about these stories, as well as subscription and single-issue purchase information at their blog. I’ve also created a page for the story here. I will be reading an excerpt from this story tonight at Ad Astra at 10 p.m.
