Heh. Boy are =you= going to be surprised by what happens next.

I preordered Quillifer, and it promptly appeared in my Kindle. Just added the audio version so I can switch back and forth.
Start it soon.

It’s on the Kindle now. I’ve been looking forward to your take on fantasy in a medieval setting since I re-read Ambassador of Progress last year and then found out about Quillifer. Is it me or on the cover does he look a little like Timothy Dalton in a younger day?

5 starred review on amazon. I haven’t laughed that much since the Drake novels. I hold out some hope that he later proves to be a less than reliable narrator, such a scoundrel!

Ok, so when the heck did you get a law degree?!?

wjw October 7, 2017 at 11:40 pm

Oh, I picked it up somewhere.

About halfway through now. I keep waiting for “cromulent” to make an appearance. Hey, it’s a new word. . . .

It’s an absolutely brilliant novel, WJW. This isn’t a mere grand slam, it’s the Cubs winning the World Series in a sudden-death tenth inning.

Just finished Quillifer, and I have a huge smile attached to my face.

I need to reread Angel Station and Implied Spaces. So good!

Thanks, everyone. It’s such a big change from anything I’ve written that I was worried readers might not follow me, but you’ve proved my fears discromulent.

“Discromulent!” I just made it up!

“Such a big change…” I’m not sure. It was kind of like _Aristoi_, or what _Aristoi_ would have been if its protagonist had been not the Omnicompetent Man but the Uncompetent Man.

Do you like those words: “omnicompetent” and “uncompetent”? I just made them up!

I don’t see the Aristoi resemblance myself. Perhaps it has something in common with your nautical adventures.

I have recently had an anti-Quillifer experience. For years I’ve been calling our cats “pestiferous” under the impression that it was a neologism. But in fact it is a perfectly respectable word. (I use it in the secondary, derived sense, of course.)
