Greg van Eekhout writes books for kids and adults. He enjoys eating little tacos, walking along the beach, and practicing kung fu. About the kung fu: He's let himself get a bit slovenly, quite frankly, so please do not challenge him to a fight. He cries easily. He's a weeper. He lives in San Diego.

Or so it appears. Actually, Daniel is like a sponge, and he can draw magic from his surroundings in a way magically analogous to osmosis. In Pacific Fire we'll see the cost of this.

Golems have the magic of the person they're generated from, so if that original is strongly osteomantic, then the golem will be as well. With someone like the Hierarch, I think of their golems as organ-donor clones.

Thanks for asking, and I hope you enjoy Pacific Fire!(less)
