About this author

Born into a literary family (both of his parents are authors and college professors), Will grew up surrounded by books and reading. In his youth, he was by turns a skate punk on the streets of Manhattan and a computer hacker with a talent for getting caught. Eventually, he managed to turn his knack for technology into a career in programming, seeing the dot com bubble burst first-hand and then co-founding his own startup in a friend's basement. But he never lost interest in literature, especially science fiction and fantasy, and in 2009 he began to focus more on writing.

I want to preface this by saying I don't hate the Berenstain Bears.

Yes, it's true that the series has never quite outgrown its '60s corniness, along with some of the baggage that comes with it, like the lame/insulting "hardworking homemaker mom and l

After seeing praise heaped on Mr. Jacobs by the likes of Pat Rothfuss and Mark Lawrence, two of the greatest wordsmiths in fantasy today, I knew I had to check out some of his work myself.

Reviewing the second entry in a series is tricky business. With a book that blew me away like Prince of Thorns, there is a tendency to expect a similar experience from its sequel, which is sort of unfair if you think about it. This is especially so i ...more
