Another month has slipped past and summer has been replaced with fall. I don't know about the rest of you, but I've always thought that autumn was the most inspirational time of year. Not just for writing, but for doing just about everything! This is the time of year when you should be running around outside wearing a flannel shirt and chopping up things with an axe...and not necessarily just wood!
On that seamless segue into the mindset of the "Heroic Fantasy" fan, I have to say that I have a nice little collection of interviews for you to peruse this month. I'm sure all of the writers I've interviewed for this edition (and Elie Challita who is also doing interviews now) would be more than happy to correspond with you, so drop them a line!
In other news, Rhemalda has just accepted another novel of mine. It's called "Birkie Fever!" in reference to the cross-country ski race in Northern Wisconsin (The American Birkebeiner). Although the heroic fantasy connection is tenuous at best, the race is named after the Norwegian Birkebeiner which is run to commemorate the escape of the infant King Haakon Haakonsson who was carried 52 kilometers on skis by a pair of Viking warriors (true life "Heroic Fantasy"...I guess that makes it just "Heroic").
Anyway, you have that to look forward to, but in the meantime, here's this month's articles!
