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 Of course, much of the information is out of date.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.

Just for fun, I've just published pocket-sized editions of four titles: Tom Derringer & the Aluminum Airship, Vika's Avenger, One-Eyed Jack, and Stuart Hopen's Warp Angel. "Pocket size" is the same size as a traditional mass-market paperback; alas, I can't match mass-market prices, but these are cheaper than the regular trade paperback editions.
"Cheaper" doesn't just mean price; they don't have any illustrations and are somewhat stripped down. You do get the complete novel, but no extras.
These are not available through Amazon or other outlets; only directly from Lulu.com. That's part of how I kept the prices down.
People who donated to the serial should have their books by now; the ink-on-paper books were all mailed before Christmas, and the e-books went out on December 23rd.
Two new titles are out from Misenchanted Press: Tom Derringer and the Aluminum Airship, by Lawrence Watt-Evans, and The Raven Coronet, by Christina Briley. Kindle editions are also available. Check 'em out!
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 #88 went out November 17th.
