The Omen Machine by Terry GoodkindTerry Goodkind on his new novel The Omen Machine

When I was young I read a book about space travelers from Earth who made a perilous journey across the galaxy and crashed on another planet.



The Moon Maze Game by Larry Niven and Steven BarnesSorcery for Writers and Readers (and those who love them)

By Steven Barnes

I recently attended a screening of director William Friedkin’s classic “Sorcerer”, a 1977 adventure film starring Roy Scheider as a man on an impossible mission. It is a gritty, nasty, impeccably made film doomed to obscurity probably for the sin of using a supernaturally suggestive title designed to sucker in fans of “The Exorcist.” Audiences resented the bait-and-switch, and a perfectly beautiful adventure film got exiled to the slag-heaps of history.



Awakenings by Edward LazellariFantasy: Keeping It Real

By Edward Lazellari

The characters in Awakenings live in our world, the one where Obama is president, Bloomberg’s the mayor, and no one can figure out the physics behind Donald Trump’s hair. My New York could be the setting for a Jonathan Franzen story, or a place where Carrie Bradshaw parties with her girlfriends. And it’s this universe that’s invaded by the “fantasy” elements. That mainstream/fantasy mix is the vibe I aimed for in writing Awakenings.



Esperanza by Trish J MacGregorA Place Called Hope

By Trish J MacGregor

Ecuador is a country that speaks to the soul. From its steaming jungles to its Andean peaks and volcanoes, from its ancient cities of narrow, cobbled streets to its seaside towns, its voice is at once sonorous, secretive, seductive. Explore me, if you dare.
