The Way of Kings by Brandon SandersonThe Way of Kings: An Introduction

By Brandon Sanderson

I’ve been asked to introduce The Way of Kings to you. And I have no idea how to start.

This is an odd position for me. Before, I’ve found it easy to explain my novels. Each one was built around one or two central premises. The gang of thieves who want to rob an immortal emperor. A man cast down by a terrible, magical disease and forced to rebuild a society among those similarly afflicted. A boy who finds that librarians secretly rule the world.



Personal Demons by Lisa DesrochersLife as Luc Sees It: Writing from the Perspective of a Demon

By Lisa Desrochers

Personal Demons is the story of Frannie Cavanaugh—a good Catholic girl with a unique skill set—who finds herself in a battle for her soul between Lucifer Cain, who works in Acquisitions for Hell, and Gabriel, the angel sent to protect her.



Twilight Forever Rising by Lena MeydanTranslating the Vampire

Six Questions for Russian author Lena Meydan

Q. In the US, Twilight Forever Rising is described as Underworld meets The Sopranos.  How would you, as the author, describe the book?

A. This is a story about the relationships between vampires and humans, taking place in a huge metropolis where secrets are hidden in the darkness and shadows persist in the light.  The everyday modern city is intertwined with the characters’ memories of the past to help illuminate the history of the existence of vampires and all that they represent.



He is Legend, edited by Christopher ConlonWhat Is An Editor, Anyway?

By Christopher Conlon

When He Is Legend won the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in an Anthology some months ago, my friends were obviously happy for me—almost as happy as I was myself, and I was pretty darned happy. But I was surprised at how often those same friends of mine said things like, “Hey, congratulations, Chris, that’s great. But what does an anthology editor do, anyway?”



Lady Lazarus by Michelle LangEveryday Magic: Lady Lazarus and the Book of Raziel

By Michele Lang

Lady Lazarus is both a historical fantasy and a magical history of my family. My mother’s childhood in Communist Hungary was filled with séances, mediums, and prophetic dreams, and everyday magic was part of the cultural fabric.
