Karphyshn on ‘Children of Fire’

Drew Karpyshyn wrote a post for Suvudu talking about that magical time between August and September, escaping into fantasy book, and how his writing career has let to Children of Fire.

Now, ten novels and twenty five years later, I’m finally equal to the task. Children of Fire is the culmination of everything I have written and read. It’s the first book in an epic trilogy that pays homage to the classic fantasy authors that kindled the creative spark inside me so long ago. The plot is driven by a kinetic style that reflects my work in video games and my sci-fi action novels. And throughout the work you’ll find dark and disturbing elements inspired by the horror masters that sent chills down my spine and made me sleep with the lights on.

Click here to read the full article. Children of Fire will be out on August 27, the same day as John Jackson Miller’s Kenobi. You can check out all the details on Random House’s product page including retailer links and a pretty big excerpt from the book. If you like Karpyshyn’s writing, this is one book you will not want to miss.

‘Kenobi’ Micro-Excerpt #2

Star Wars Books has released micro-excerpt #2 for John Jackson Miller’s upcoming Kenobi.

When quiet finally came, all Ulbreck could hear was a gentle cooing inside the blanket on his lap. Fumbling for the utility light he carried in his pocket, Ulbreck lit it and looked down at the bundle he was holding.

A tiny baby with a wisp of blond hair gurgled at him.

“Hello,” Ulbreck said, not knowing what else to say.

The infant cooed.

The bearded man appeared at Ulbreck’s side. Lit from below by the portable light, he looked kindly—and not at all fatigued by what he had just done. “Thank you,” he said, taking the child back. Starting to rise, he paused. “Do you know the way to the Lars homestead?” he asked.

Ulbreck scratched his beard. “Well, now, there’s four or five ways to get there. Let me think of the best way to describe it—”

“Never mind,” the man replied. “I’ll find it myself.” He and the child disappeared into the darkness.

Kenobi hits stores August 27th. You can find retailer links here, and you can check out the previous mini-excerpt here.
