Yay Brandon Sanderson!

Fun to see the NY Times‘ interview with Brandon Sanderson today – one of my favorite inspired by another!  Sanderson may be best known at present for (finally) finishing Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series (possibly better than Jordan himself would have).  If you haven’t read his Stormlight Archive books yet, I highly recommend them.  […]

Antryg and Joanna are back! And Ingold and Gil!

Zippy update

Plus-One joins the Further Adventures stable (Antryg alert!) tonight

Hi, all- Hope you’re having a great summer!  The latest Further Adventures story, Plus-One, debuts tonight.  If anyone thought that traveling to California meant Joanna and Antryg were going to have a nice peaceful life, unmarred by brushes with alien lifeforms, random Voids, and errant mageborn (not to mention rock stars, ectoplasm, and the intricacies […]
