Two From the Mageworlds
The Confessions of Peter Crossman
From now through the 1st of January, two of our e-books are on sale over at Smashwords at a special promotional price: Free.
They represent the two major genres in which we work: fantasy and science fiction. So, if you’ve never read any of our books, here you go: Two From the MageWorlds, and The Confessions of Peter Crossman.
By the way — now it can be told — we’re planning to bring our best-selling and award-winning YA novel Knight’s Wyrd back into print. With luck we’ll have it out by and at Heliosphere.
MERRY CHRISTMAS, Y’ALL!
Magic show in Littleton, NH
Want to see The Polar Express? Nah, you say. Seen it.
Did you see it with a magic show? A magic show with me? No? Then come on down! If you’re anywhere in the Littleton, NH area on December 15th (that’s a Saturday), then come to the Opera House at 6:00 pm, pay a (purely nominal) admission, and see the show!
See my new-for-this-event candy cane wand! Hear jokes like, “What did Santa say when he got stuck in the chimney upside down?” (“Oh Oh Oh!”) and see a movie and meet Santa. What’s not to like?
So there I was, one day in December of 1983, walking into the wardroom on USS Moinester (FF 1097) when I spotted a banner on the forward bulkhead that read “SEASON’S GREETINGS” in big gold letters. And I read it as “Season’s Lamentations” because, immersed in the Ballads of Britain and assorted Middle Scots works as I was, to me to greet meant to weep or lament, as in “wha gars ye greet sae sair?”
This by way of explaining the title of this post. He who laughs last had to have it explained. You had to have been there.
Which is all by way of introducing the fact that my Glorious Sister (LCDR Supply Corps, USN, Ret) will be singing in the Songs of the Season concert, 09DEC18, 1500 (six bells of the noon watch). Anyone in the Chicago area is invited to attend.
