Leigh Brackett’s Tales of Planetary Romance: Eric John Stark: Outlaw of Mars
Outlaw mars1
As the 20th Century unfolded, and explorers made their way to the furthest reaches of the Earth, it became increasingly clear that there were no lost civilizations or mysterious beasts lurking just around the corner.

The Cover Art Briefing Process: Designing the Look of Banished

Oathbringer crop
A long time ago (a little over three years), my first article for this website was about beta reading Words of Radiance. There’s a fair amount of water under the bridge since then, and I’ve done more beta reads, all of which functioned more or less like that one. Then came Oathbringer. I’m here today, in collaboration with a few of the beta readers, to talk about what this one was like.
