Michael R. Fletcher is a science fiction and fantasy author, a grilled cheese aficionado, and a whiskey-swilling reprobate. He spends his days choreographing his forklift musical (titled "Get Forked"), and using caffeine as a substitute for sanity. Any suggestions that he is actually Dyrk Ashton in disguise are all lies.

As good as Abercrombie?! WHOAH! Just slow yer roll there, right? Let's not get carried away.

I have, in fact, written some new stuff. Here's a quick preview of what is to come. No idea when/how things will be released.

THE OBSIDIAN PATH: Set in the world of Death at the Pass, and The Undying Lands, this is a story of demonologists, necromancers, and wizards. A young Khraen is the main character. Anyone who has read all my short fiction will know who that is.

CITY OF SACRIFICE: A mad cross of Aztec and African influences and a narcotics-based hallucinatory magic system a la Carlos Castaneda. Post-apocalyptic dark fantasy.

The above two are currently being shopped by my agent.

MILLENNIAL MANIFESTO: Modern day. Millennials adopt terrorist-tactics to force change in corporate America. Shit goes sideways. This one is written and in editing.

A HOME FOR BROKEN DREAMS: Far future dark SF. Imagine Iain Banks' Culture, but just as they were about to achieve utopia, they veered off into a corporatocracy and declared war on the Machines. Book one is plotted, and about 1/3 written. Should have a first draft finished by September, if all goes well and I don't crack.

The next two(ish) years should see the release of three of four books.(less)

Ash and Bones by Michael R. Fletcher
"A lot of sequels spend a good amount of words on reader handholding. They remind the reader of what happened in the previous installment and what all these fantasy terms mean. This book doesn’t do that.

"Another dark and impressive read.

I really feel like this book has taken the series for a different kind of ride, yet it maintains all the dark and delight from Beyond Redemption.
The Mirror's Truth also bumps up the action and brings a visceral feel, " Read more of this review »

Michael Fletcher answered Slava Diachenko 's question: Michael R. Fletcher
As I recall the Russian publisher only purchased rights to the first book - though it was several years ago so I might be misremembering. If it sells well, they'll likely buy translation rights to the second. Not a clue if it's selling well.

“There's something satisfying to proclaiming humility while knowing just how important you truly are.”
Michael R. Fletcher, Beyond Redemption

“For all Wichtig spoke of trust, he trusted no one. For all he spoke of wisdom, he learned nothing. Every word he uttered was done so with an eye toward manipulation.”
Michael R. Fletcher, Beyond Redemption

Eckhart Tolle
