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 left link to relevant pages (generally on Amazon). To the right, that's a picture of me visiting Arcosanti, followed by ads, and maybe my Twitter feed. 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 1994 and I don't take much of anything down, so it's probably around somewhere. Of course, much of the information is out of date.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.

The current Ethshar serial, Ishta's Companion, is continuing, though probably not for long. The title in its eventual published form will be Relics of War. The serial will keep the Ishta's Companion name to minimize confusion.
The latest installment is Chapter Twenty-Two. No more chapters are paid for at this point. When I sign the contract with Wildside, the serial stops, whether it's finished or not. I don't know when that will happen, but I've sent Wildside the finished novel.
The final draft runs twenty-four chapters and a two-page epilogue. If the serial gets that far, the epilogue will be included with Chapter Twenty-Four.
An explanation of how the serial works is available.
I read the original novel in manuscript, before Tor published it in 1995, and loved it, so when Stuart said the rights were available I couldn't resist. It's a bizarre, wildly inventive novel.
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 #83 went out June 1st.
