Thinking about historical fantasy

Now that I have a couple more books under contract, I’ve been thinking about my writing lately in terms of career arc. Seems silly, of course, with The Daedalus Incident finally launched last week. But the good folks at Skyhorse Publishing want The Enceladus Crisis and a follow-up for release next year, and that leads to thoughts of…well, what happens after that.

Great question. But when I think about the various things I’ve wanted to write about, it really comes back to historical fantasy of one stripe or another. That’s the subject of my guest post today at the blog of Anne Lyle, author of The Alchemist of Souls, The Merchant of Dreams and The Prince of Lies. Anne’s Elizabethan-era historical fantasy trilogy is all kinds of awesome, and I’m honored to come on her blog to talk about our shared subgenre.

The guest post also features some (admittedly tangential) thinking about the future of the Daedalus setting. While not strictly spoilery, I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the questions I pose in the blog get answered in the months ahead. So check it out!

While I’m here, I wanted to thank everyone who not only picked up a copy of The Daedalus Incident in print, ebook and/or audio, but also took the time to write up a review. It’s really heartening to see the reception to the book so far. Definitely fuels the drive to keep writing the next one!
