Everything Heroic About Skirmishers

Hi, everyone! Before I get to today’s topic, I’d like to say that I hope you are in good health and the recent epidemic isn’t causing you anything more than frustration. Working from home isn’t quite as time-saving as I’d expected, but I have made some changes to the website that I hope will make it easier to navigate and find things that interest you. Hit me up with any topics you’d like to see added!

Today I’d like to give some more information about the new release I’m a part of, Janet Morris’ anthology, Heroika: Skirmishers. If you’ve checked out previous articles about it, you know a bit about it.

A.L. Butcher, a contributor to this book, as well as the editor, has done some great “interview” posts with the authors about their stories and characters on her blog at Library of Erana. So below is a very brief synopsis with a link to each interview. I hope you enjoy!

If you would like to order it, the eBook is available now at this link. The print book is coming soon.
