Ken Harrison has his review of Stonehell Dungeon: Down Night-Haunted Halls up on The Rusty Battle Axe. A very fine review, too, if you’re one to take this scribe’s word for it.
In other news, I’ve finally managed to clean my plate of responsibilities that I owe others for the near future. This is the first time in a year that I’m free of obligations to others and myself, and I’ve quite honestly forgotten what that freedom feels like. I might even start posting content of relative value around here again to celebrate. Only until March, though, because that’s when I pick up pen and start writing Stonehell Two: The Quickening.
I spent the morning answering some interview questions for a forthcoming article and had quite a bit of fun doing it. I haven’t done an interview since my punk rock days, and it was nice to have the easy part of a writing assignment for a change. The interview also put two thoughts into my head: One was that I’d be willing to do more email interviews in the future if anyone else gives a damn about what I think. You can reach me at the email addy over there to the right. Two was that I might do a “commentary track” for Stonehell Dungeon in some form. Like any writer, I put a lot of personal touches, in-jokes, and obscure references into the book. I personally like hearing the stories behind such things, but I’m also very much concerned that, by pulling back the curtain, I’ll ruin the enjoyment of the dungeon for some people. Also, it’s often better to remain silent and be thought a wise man than open one’s mouth and prove you’re a fool. If you’d be interested in reading some behind-the-scenes anecdotes about the book, let me know. If there’s enough interest, I’ll figure out the best spoiler-free way of relating them.
