The website of Lawrence Watt-Evans.
Welcome to The Misenchanted Page, the website of Lawrence Watt-Evans, author of a bunch of stuff -- mostly fantasy, but also some science fiction, horror, non-fiction, etc.
Covers on the right link to relevant pages (generally where you can buy a copy, usually on Amazon) about recent work. Below is whatever writing news I consider important -- new releases, book contracts, and so on.
Anything else may take some digging, but I've had a site here since 1995 and I don't take much of anything down, so it's probably around somewhere. Each of my novels and stories has its own page, giving a bit of history about how it got written and published, and there are assorted articles, trip reports, and miscellany. Of course, some of the information may be out of date. The Main Page is generally a good place to start looking for whatever you're after, but below are a few other links you might find useful. "Misenchanted Press" is the name of a small press I own.
In theory, the whole site is now mobile-friendly. If you encounter problems in that regard, let me know.
Some non-writing news: The webhost I've used for more than twenty years is shutting down, so I've relocated everything. This means new e-mail addresses, but the URLs are all the same. The Guestbook did not make the transition, nor did the newsgroup/bulletin board on the "Discussion" page, but my various blogs all did, so stop by and comment.
I have launched a Patreon page where I'll be posting whatever comes to hand for my patrons, with a minimum pledge of $1.00 per month. I've promised to add at least two items a month, at least one of which will be a short story. So far, I've posted several short stories -- some previously unpublished, some just obscure -- several maps, a couple of covers, story ideas and fragments that never got finished, etc., all visible only to patrons. I expect patrons will also get advance e-books of new novels, when there are any.
Wildside is offering a free sampler of my work. Not sure for how long.
For the first time, Misenchanted Press has published non-fiction -- my sister's obsessively-researched, lavishly-illustrated history of social dance in Lowell, Massachusetts.
My daughter Kyrith is now doing a webcomic called Misguided Light. Check it out!
I occasionally send out e-mail notices called the Misenchanted Newsletter, updating the latest news on my publications. I've promised these will appear no more than once a week unless there are urgent corrections needed; it usually seems to run once or twice a month when there's no serial in progress, weekly if there are serial updates to report. E-mail me if you'd like to sign up for it.
In addition to the fairly concise reporting of writing news in the regular edition, I also now offer an occasional "chatty version," with more personal commentary, that you can also subscribe to. The chatty version comes out much less often.
If you decide you don't like either one, you can always unsubscribe; I have no interest in antagonizing readers by sending them things they don't want.
If you've signed up for the newsletter and haven't received it, please e-mail me and let me know! Issue #112 went out January 21st.
