The Folly of the World by Jesse Bullington fantasy book reviewsSome of your favorite authors take some time to answer our questions:

Got any news to share?

Rachel Aaron The Legend of Eli Monpress 1. The Spirit Thief 2. The Spirit Rebellion 3. The Spirit Eater 4. The Spirit War 5. Spirit's EndJesse Bullington: My third novel, The Folly of the World, will be released by Orbit on December 18th. I’m really excited about this one, which is more of a late medieval crime novel with some weird flourishes than a straight-up fantasy along the lines of my first two projects.

Rachel Aaron: My final ELI MONPRESS novel, Spirit’s End, comes out November 20! This the conclusion to the series, and I think readers are really going to like it. At least, I hope readers are going to like it, otherwise December is going to be a rough month of angry emails!

What are you working on these days?

Pati Nagle: I’m just finished up a new fantasy that came out this Halloween: Dead Man’s Hand is about a poker tournament played by Wild Bill Hickock and four other famous murdered card players, all resurrected for the occasion by the mysterious owner of a secret, magical casino. Only one will win…the right to stay alive!

Jim C. Hines: I’m writing Codex Born, the sequel to Libriomancer. We already have cover art and a release date, so I suppose I’d better get that done, eh?

Read any good books lately?
