Nick Wisseman lives in the woods of Michigan with his wife, kids, ten dogs, sixty cats, and forty horses. (The true number of pets is an order of magnitude smaller, but most days it feels like more.) He's not quite sure why he loves writing twisted fiction, but there's no stopping the weirdness once he's in front of a computer. You can find the complete list of oddities on his website: www.nickwisseman.com ...more

Hi, Sue! I definitely plan to keep writing weird fiction, and the pets help with that. I’m never quite sure which way is up around here😊

As far as the current Red Wraith books go, The Battle Dancer and The Ascenders are meant as prequels to The Red Wraith. (Originally, they were all part of one manuscript, but it made for too many viewpoint characters, so I split things up.) I’d recommend going 1) The Battle Dancer, 2) The Ascenders, and 3) The Red Wraith. Several people have read them out of order without being too confused, though, so it’s up to you. The only other thing to know is that The Battle Dancer and The Ascenders aren’t fully self-contained—their true endings come in The Red Wraith.

Thanks for the question, and happy reading!(less)

Book Review: This Is How You Lose the Time War, by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone

Letters are many things in Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone’s This Is How You Lose the Time War. Taunts between foes. Invitations to friendship. Missives of love.

They are also, at various points, tree rings, magma, and bubbles. (Seal guts are involved at one point too.)

This epistolary novella begins as a contest between two time travelers, the preeminent members of competing organizations bent on
