The Seeker and the Sword coverThe Seekers and The Sword.
It’s the second book in the Vidar Saga trilogy that I wrote back in the eighties, a sequel to The Hammer and The Horn. And by Thanksgiving, it’ll be back in print.
I can’t tell you how many people have asked me about it. Not only here and at cons but in my dreams, people come up to me and want to know about The Seekers and The Sword. People like Patrick Stewart and Whitey Ford and Albert Einstein because, you know, they’re dreams, and even more to the point they’re MY dreams.
So please, be patient. Pretty soon you’ll have a chance to get The Seekers and The Sword, both in print and in DRM-free e-book formats. In the meantime, feast your eyes on this wonderful cover by Brazilian phenom Caio Cacau. If The Seekers and The Sword is half as good as this cover, it’ll be well worth the wait.
PangaeaI don’t remember exactly when the question struck me: What would mankind be like if we had grown up on a single landmass instead of a collection of separate and distinct continents?
Now, scientists will tell you that complex life forms could never have developed in that case. But that shouldn’t stop us from wondering—and it didn’t. (We, in this case, being me and thirteen* of the best sci fi authors I know.)
We wondered about population distribution in a place where there’s an inner sea and no impetus to develop ocean travel. We wondered about technological development, which would probably be pretty uniform in a place where every culture is accessible to every another. We wondered about the human variant known to us as Neanderthal, which might have survived if had been protected by local geography and not forced to compete with its Cro-Magnon contemporaries. And so on. Eventually, we came up with Pangaea—the first science fiction anthology to explore the rich, varied, and eminently human tapestry of the supercontinent.
Now Pangaea is available to everyone at and B&, both as a paperback and as an e-book. Click here to buy it from these sources.
We hope you enjoy the journey as much as we did.
