Welcome to The Misenchanted Page, the website of fantasy and science fiction author Lawrence Watt-Evans. There are two versions of much of the site: No Frills and Spiffy. ''No Frills'' means almost no graphics, no frames, etc., and is intended for people with slow connections, visual impairment, or other reasons to keep things extremely simple. I recommend the Spiffy side for ordinary users.
For a quick summary of the latest news about my writing, see below. If you're strictly an Ethshar fan, then you can visit the portion of the Misenchanted Page devoted exclusively to The World of Ethshar. You can leave me a message in the Guestbook, or read a few of my musings in my Weblog. For everything else, choose No Frills or Spiffy
Finally available: E-book editions of Dragon Weather, The Dragon Society, and Dragon Venom, for both Kindle and Nook .
Also now available: Mind Candy, my collection of essays about pop culture -- comic books, TV, movies, and more, from Jane Austen to Buffy Summers and beyond.
The last Ethshar serial was The Sorcerer's Widow. The Wildside Press edition is now scheduled for June, 2013, and is available for pre-order from Amazon. Chapters One and Two are still on the web as a teaser.
There will be more Ethshar serials; I hope to start the next in June or July of 2013. The most likely choice (though not definite) is Ishta's Companion.
Tales of Ethshar, a collection of all the short Ethshar stories to date, is now available from Amazon and Barnes & Noble, in both paper and e-book form.
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 two or three times a month when there's no serial in progress, weekly when 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 #50 went out April 4th.
