Thanks, Kajehase. But unfortunately, such kind of story is not really my cup of tea.

Hi, Dennis. Not yet, apparently. Unfortunately, I don't control these things.

Hi, Kajehase. Thanks for finding that. When I looked yesterday, it wasn't there yet.

In Red Rune Canyon - Chapter One: A Difference of Opinion by Richard is up over at Paizo.

There is a rumour going around that I have found god. I think is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.

They usually put the blog up around the time I wake up, and the laptop usually ends up parked next to the bed, so...

Thanks, ile! ;)

Richard, will we see more of Szass Tam in this book? Did Sarshethrian appear in your previous books that I might have forgotten? Is he an undead lord or something?

Hi Richard, got a question and so sorry its late(in terms of the time span)

In Undead, when the Zulkirs were going to gather at Samas Kul's private "yatch" Nevron was riding a fiend with the body of a green dragon that had a woman's head, can that creature be found in any sourcebook or was it a product of your fertile imagination?

Hi, guys.

Dennis: Szass Tam does not appear in Prophet of the Dead.

Sarshethrian does not appear in any of my previous books. In technical D&D terms, I left his precise "type" (god, demon, devil, or what have you) deliberately undefined. But you can find out everything else about him in Prophet of the Dead.

Xar: You realize, it's been a while since I wrote that novel, but if I recall correctly, I made up that particular fiend. I feel relatively free to do that, because somewhere in D&D lore, it says that the netherworld is swarming with an amazing variety of fiends. The ones detailed in the various sourcebooks are just a small sample of what's out there.

Thanks, Richard. That's one of the things I like about you---you always come up with interesting villains, and if they're "existing" (like Szass Tam and Iyraclea), you bring out the best in them. I hope to see more of Sarshethrian---and of course, of Aoth, Jet, and the rest of the Brotherhood.

The current plan is for more novels about the Brotherhood, just not right away. Next up is THE REAVER, my contribution to the Sundering sequence.

Is the main character a new creation or from the existing setting? (Sorry if this intrudes on the whole confidentiality thing, I fully understand if you dont answer this)

Xar: The protagonist of The Reaver is a new character.

And, on a completely different subject...

Lady Ssa - I want more!

Edit: ...I think I'm coming down with Twitterer's syndrome.

Aye. And hopefully the future Brotherhood novels will be released in hardbound.

This:

quote:
My argument here, though, is that it’s really not the entire genre of the fantastic that’s enjoyed great mainstream acceptance. It’s some individual works that are maximally accessible, often because they’re based on characters like Batman and Spider-Man or creatures like vampires and zombies that have been in play so long that everybody has some notion of who or what they are.
Agreed. And people I normally consider fantasy or sci-fi geeks are those who devour every single medium of the character or world they're very interested in. They don't just go and see Superman movies; they read the comics, too. They don't just see all the Harry Potter films ever made; they read the novels, too. And well, buy all sorts of merchandise inspired by those characters.

Kajehase: I'd like to do more with Lady Ssa/ If it turns out that Called to Darkness does well and Paizo commissions more Pathfinder novels from me, she could well turn up again.

Dennis: As you can probably guess, hardcover publication sounds good to me.

If you're interested in my novel Pathfinder Tales: Called to Darkness but didn't get around to ordering it directly from Paizo, Amazon now has it in stock, so you can get it there as well:

Here's an interview with me focused mainly on Pathfinder Tales: Called to Darkness. The most recent podcast on the same site contains a review of the novel.
