The website of Lawrence Watt-Evans.
Welcome to The Misenchanted Page, the website of Lawrence Watt-Evans, author of a bunch of stuff -- mostly fantasy, but also some science fiction, horror, non-fiction, etc.
Covers on the right link to relevant pages (generally where you can buy a copy, usually on Amazon) about recent work. Below is whatever writing news I consider important -- new releases, book contracts, and so on.
Anything else may take some digging, but I've had a website since 1996 and I don't take much of anything down, so it's probably around somewhere. Each of my novels and stories has its own page, giving a bit of history about how it got written and published, and there are assorted articles, trip reports, and miscellany. Of course, some of the information may be out of date. The Main Page is generally a good place to start looking for whatever you're after, but below are a few other links you might find useful. "Misenchanted Press" is the name of a small press I own.
In theory, the whole site is now mobile-friendly. If you encounter problems in that regard, let me know.
We have recently sold our house and are now living in a variety of temporary residences; this will probably mean that I won't be able to keep things up to date around here. (Not that I was doing that great a job anyway.) It may also mean less writing gets done -- though I doubt it'll be any worse than the months of preparation for the house sale.
The audiobook of With A Single Spell is now available. The audiobook of Dragon Venom is in preparation, and with any luck it will be available by Christmas.
My story "The Prisoner of Shalott" is in By the Light of Camelot, an
Arthurian anthology edited by Jeff Campbell & Shannon Allen, now available both
in e-book form, and
Warner Brothers has optioned a feature film version
of "Why I Left Harry's
All-Night Hamburgers," adapted by Steven Desmond and Michael Sherman. See
these stories in the Hollywood Reporter or
the Tracking Board for more details.
Both the ebook of Stone
Unturned: A Legend of Ethshar and the
are now available.
My story "Harry's Toaster" is in the Fall 2018 issue of the once-again-revived Amazing Stories.
For the first time, Misenchanted Press has published non-fiction -- my sister's obsessively-researched, lavishly-illustrated
history of social dance in Lowell, Massachusetts. She's put together a website about it, and of course you can order it
Barnes & Noble.
I occasionally send out e-mail notices called the Misenchanted Newsletter, updating the latest news on my
promised these will appear no more than once a week unless there are urgent corrections needed; it usually seems to run about once a month. To
subscribe, e-mail me. (I used to have a form you could use, but so many spammers were hitting it I gave up.)
In addition to the fairly concise reporting of writing news in the regular edition, I also now offer an occasional "chatty version," with more personal commentary, that you can also subscribe to. The chatty version comes out much less often.
If you decide you don't like either one, you can always unsubscribe; I have no interest in antagonizing readers by sending them things they don't want.
If you've signed up for the newsletter and haven't received it, please e-mail me and let me know! Issue #133 went out October 14th.
