My piece on how to engineer fantasy societies to be a bit more egalitarian is up at World Weaver Press.
SF Signal asked a bunch of authors (including me) to talk about what makes a good action scene, and who’s good at writing them. Take a look!
Nick Sharps writes a very kind review at SF Signal.
Today I’m writing about (one way) to approach writing about war as a fantasy author.
Today I am interviewed at book review blog Civilian Reader.
The second half of my post on The Fantasy Language Problem is up.
More guest blogging! This time on “How I Became a Gamer (And a Writer)” for Powell’s Geek Week.
First half of a guest post I wrote for Fantasy-Faction, on The Fantasy Language Problem.
“I absolutely loved it. Wexler balances the actions of his very human characters with just the right amount of imaginative “magic” to keep me wanting more.” – Taylor Anderson, National Bestselling Author of the Destroyerman Series
Got the first blurb for The Thousand Names from my editor today, from S.M. Stirling:
“Wexler has produced something unusual in the fantasy line, with a setting reminiscent of the early Victorian period, out on the bleeding edge of Empire, a world of dust and bayonets and muskets… and magic. The characters are fascinating and -all- of them have secrets. The heroes range from the noble to the distinctly ambiguous…I read it at a gulp and look forward to more.”
– S.M. Stirling, New York Times bestselling author of LORD OF MOUNTAINS
Particularly exciting for me since some of his books (especially his early series with David Drake, The General) were part of the inspiration for Shadow Campaigns in the first place.
