Previously available only on the Onder Librum site, my Stormtalons novel THE GHOST IN THE STONE is now available on Amazon. (Stormtalons is the new epic fantasy universe created by Ed Greenwood.) So if you were waiting to get it using an Amazon gift card, your Amazon Prime membership, or some such, YOUR HOUR IS AT HAND!

And you know, if you already did get it via Onder Librum but you're just bursting with the urge to share your opinion of it with the world, you can still post a review on Amazon. The Amazon Gestapo won't come in the night and kick in your door or anything. Or at least I don't think so.

There's a new eBook edition of my horror novel DEAD TIME out from the fine people at Crossroad Press. It's already available on Amazon and will be listed at Barnes & Noble, iTunes, and all the usual suspects in the very near future.

DEAD TIME combines the thrills and chills of supernatural horror with the twisty logic of classic time travel stories. The hero faces malevolent spirits and also has to worry about creating paradoxes, altering his own past, erasing himself from existence, and all that kind of thing.

Here's a link to the book on Amazon:

Available now! THIS SWORD FOR HIRE collects all the stories (so far) about my sword-and-sorcery hero Selden, which is to say, some of my favorite stuff. No BS, I think anyone who likes my Forgotten Realms stuff will like these yarns as well. You can check out the book here:

Out of curiosity, was there ever plans to write further stories on Aoth and the Brotherhood of the Griffon? Been awhile but was rereading those books and enjoyed them quite a bit.

At one point, there were definitely plans to continue the series, but then Wizards of the Coast decided to wind down the entire Forgotten Realms fiction line, and those plans were canceled along with many others.

Anyway, glad you enjoyed the books that do exist.

Too bad. I'm a fan of the Brotherhood, as well. I started reading Realms novels with the Captive Flame. So, thanks for those books you gave us, I really enjoyed them.

Long ago, in the distant past, they fell into decay. The philosopher’s path... The river of glory... Even the saints resting in the darkness rise up without response and block the way...

Just curious, where do you see the Eminence of Araunt and Szass Tam headed? I'm seeing the two groups headed to a conflict, even though Tam is undead himself. That being said, the question of what remains of the eminence is left up in the air, especially with the sundering.

Alavairthae, may your skill prevail

Sorry for the delay in answering the question above. Somehow I just noticed it.

Honestly, I haven't thought about the Eminence in relation to Szass, but you're right, assuming the Eminence still exists post-Sundering, some sort of interaction seems likely, possibly when Szass tries to become the leader. Naturally, there would be powerful entities within the Eminence who would be reluctant to grant him such a position.

Or maybe the Eminence tries to recruit Szass's undead minions, and he doesn't take kindly to that.

Either is a good idea for a story, or one strand of a story, but I probably won't be telling it (or any more Realms yarns of any sort, alas.) DM's who fight the notion interesting will have to spin it out in their campaigns.

I have a new collection out called THE THINGS THAT CRAWL It contains some of the best short fiction I've written over the years.

The packaging makes it look like it's 100% horror, but in reality, it's got some sword-and-sorcery in it and some other non-horror pieces as well. I think many Candlekeep people would find something to enjoy in it.

If you're interested, you can check it out here:

Will have to check that out. Anything to support one of my favorite Realms author alums and fellow fencing enthusiast.
