On the first of April one year (not sure which, but no later than 2002) I set up an April Fool's gag where the front page of my website was hijacked by cyberspace revolutionaries. By modern standards it's pretty primitive, and cyber-terrorism doesn't seem as funny now as it did then, but I've kept it around out of sentiment.

Here it is...

Welcome to The Misenchanted Page, the website of fantasy and science fiction author Lawrence Watt-Evans.

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, check out the Main Page.

Stone Unturned has been delivered to Wildside. Tom Derringer in the Tunnels of Terror is complete and edited. Both should be out later this year.

I have stories in several upcoming anthologies. "The Lady of Shadow Guard," a prequel to Jack of Shadows, will be in Shadows and Reflections, a Roger Zelazny tribute anthology edited by Trent Zelazny & Warren Lapine, scheduled for June publication. A superhero story called "An Evil Opportunity Employer" will be in Unidentified Funny Objects 6, scheduled for October publication. "The Prisoner of Shalott" will be in By the Light of Camelot, an Arthurian anthology edited by Jeff Campbell & Shannon Allen, scheduled for August 2018 publication in Canada. And an anthology called Science Fiction for the Throne will reprint "Nif's World".

The Lawrence Watt-Evans Fantasy MEGAPACK is now available for just 99 cents! The mass-market paperback edition of Above His Proper Station is also out and in stores.

Patreon 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 So far, I've posted several short stories -- some previously unpublished, some just obscure -- several maps, a couple of covers, story ideas and fragments that never got finished, etc., all visible only to patrons.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. Twirling Jennies

For the first time, Misenchanted Press has published non-fiction -- my sister's obsessively-researched, lavishly-illustrated history of social dance in Lowell, Massachusetts. She's put together a website about it, and of course you can order it from Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

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 about once a month 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 #115 went out May 4th.
