Assorted Thoughts on The High Fantasy Genre

 

So I’m working on a thing.

Like most things I work on, I really can’t go into too much detail about this one. It’s a very personal project, and one that will likely take a bit of time to complete. There may be a dearth of content here for a while as a result, save for the odd interview. But in the mean time, my thing has given me a lot to think about in regards to High Fantasy settings. There’s a lot of real fun to be had in these, but also many pet peeves that tend to get under my skin.

Author Interviews are Coming Soon!

Been a while since I’ve posted here. Had some personal/family stuff going on that’s kept me busy, but I wanted to make an important announcements!

So about a month ago, I wrote an article on self-published fantasy, and how it’s a vastly underrated segment of genre fiction. Long story short, it blew up a bit and ended up on the front page of r/Fantasy for a few days. Some authors sent me messages, or shared my post, which helped me get almost a thousand hits on this fairly obscure and new blog.

All I can say on that count is…wow. Thanks a lot, everyone!

Because of the positive reception that got, I’ve decided to start interviewing some authors and creators in the SFF community, particularly in small press and self-pub. I always love hearing all the different stories these writers have to offer, and nothing would make me happier than helping them sell a copy or two.

On that note, I’d like to announce my first interview! Michael R. Baker, author of The Thousand Scars, will be sharing some thoughts on his writing journey, as well as a bit about his books.

I’m working on a big project of my own as well, so stay tuned for news of that as well!
