|01:13 pm - End of an Era...|
My contributor copy of the April 2009 issue of Realms of Fantasy just arrived, and with it, the last column I had the opportunity to submit to them. In this issue, I cover:
Eon: Dragoneye Reborn by Allison Goodman
Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception by Maggie Stiefvater
Selkie Girl by Laurie Brooks
Palace of Mirrors by Margaret Peterson Haddix
Worldweavers: Cybermage by Alma Alexander
Chance Fortune in the Shadow Zone by Shane Berryhill
Revealers by Amanda Marrone
The Crown of Zeus by Christine Norris
Fiction in this issue is by: K.D. Wentworth, Adam Corbin Fusco, Garth Upshaw, and Desirina Boskovich.
I expect this issue will hit the stands within the next week or so, so keep your eyes open.

... Goodman's Dragoneye book not too long ago. What were your thoughts?
In short, I really enjoyed it. I thought it set up an interesting world with an intriguing mythology, some nifty fight scenes, and a few honest surprises, even as it invoked the old and familiar through its use of Chinese archetypes and martial arts films.
I'm looking forward to the next installment.

Re: I reviewed...
I enjoyed it, but it didn't get top marks because there were some parts that were so telegraphed that I could hear the Morse Code in the background.
I thought about running by the Roanoke B&N this past Saturday specifically to see if they had the last Realms, but didn't, figuring, It won't be out yet...But I can get a copy otherwise sooner or later.
Any chance I can get a copy of that review? I don't even know if you liked it or not :)
