EUOLogy: Goodbye Mr. Jordan

EUOLogy: Goodbye Mr. Jordan Cross posted from the EUOLogy section of my website: My career, like many young fantasy authors, has been deeply influenced by Robert Jordan, and I find his passing a to be a tragedy for the entire community. I still remember the first time I saw EYE OF THE WORLD on bookshelves.…

Huzzah! Well, folks, I can safely say that I know ONE reason why the book has been so tough to find for some people. We got numbers for last week today, and they look pretty darn good. Bookscan (the Nielsen ratings for books) lists MISTBORN: WELL OF ASCENSION as the #3 hardback fantasy of the…

Update From the Desert + Chapter

Update From the Desert + Chapter I’m still down here in Southern Utah, but the hotel has interment access, so I figured it was time to get off my duff and post something. (Well, actually, I’m still sitting on my duff as I post, but you get the idea.) I don’t know if I mentioned,…

Amphigory! Yes, for those who were hoping these were gone, THOU FOOLS! Bad puns are my life-blood. Each time one makes Tage groan, I grow a little bit stronger. Soon I will rule the world. Need a clue? I’m hard at work at the Mistborn 3 rewrite, and–alas–have not had any time to read Harry…

This isn’t too bad editing wise, but the writing itself isn’t up to my current skill level. So, please don’t hold that against me. However,…

A solid, interesting and innovative system of magic in a book is something that really appeals to me. True, characters are what make a story narratively powerful—but magic is a large part of what makes…

Amphigory + Pemberly Moment + ??

Amphigory + Pemberly Moment + ?? It’s a special Valentine’s Week Amphigory: Need a clue? This is a bit harder. It has to do with the little cherub, and what he’s holding. Also, the text itself isn’t all that important. In case you’re new to the blog, every Tuesday I do random stupid puns in…

Happy New Year! (Amphigory Included)

Happy New Year! (Amphigory Included) Did you think I forgot? I have two resolutions. Get back to work, and answer my email. Hopefully, this Amphigory isn’t that tough to figure out. It’s the first of what may be a series of alternate jobs for famous science fiction characters. Be afraid. File name has the solution.…
