    New Atheran short story on the horizon

    In the Evil is a Matter of Perspective anthology, which we can actually support. The stretch goal for Janny's story has been reached, but if a few more goals are met, each supporter gets more stuff, and the authors get paid a bit more, which can't be a bad thing. Here's a link: Evil is a Matter...

    Child of prophecy short story e-book!!

    This is probably the most important short story, which takes place shortly after the overthrow of the five kingdoms, five hundred years before the events in Curse of the Mistwraith. This story answers a lot of the questions about the back story leading up to The Wars of Light and Shadow, and the...

    Master of whitestorm e-book!!!

    Good to see this fantastic title available again! Korendir, who many readers see at a prototype of Janny Wurts' main protagonist Arithon in the Wars of Light and Shadow, is that kind of driven character that gives absolutely everything of himself. Big message to me in this story is the...

    Daughter of the Empire

    Wondering if there are any here who are fans of Wurtz's collabration with Feist? I have tried the non-Riftwar books by Wurtz. While decent, they just dont grab me like the Empire collaboration. Which begs the question, at least for me, how much of the collaboration was Feist how much was...
