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 1995 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 Of course, some of the information may be out of date.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.
Stone Unturned has been delivered to
Wildside and should be published some time this year. Tom Derringer in the Tunnels of Terror is
ready to go except for the frontispiece and should be out in July. (Patreon supporters have already received an advance ebook edition.)
I have stories in
several upcoming anthologies. "The Lady of Shadow Guard," a prequel to Jack of Shadows,
will be in Shadows and Reflections, a Roger Zelazny tribute anthology edited by Trent Zelazny & Warren Lapine, scheduled for June publication. A superhero story called
"An Evil Opportunity Employer" will be in Unidentified Funny Objects 6, scheduled for October publication. "The Prisoner of Shalott" will be in By the Light of Camelot, an
Arthurian anthology edited by Jeff Campbell & Shannon Allen, scheduled for August 2018 publication in Canada. And an
anthology called Science Fiction for the Throne will reprint "Nif's World".
The Lawrence Watt-Evans
Fantasy MEGAPACK is now
available for just 99 cents! The mass-market
paperback edition of Above His Proper Station is also out and in stores.
I have launched a Patreon page where
I'll be posting whatever comes to hand for my patrons, with a minimum pledge of $1.00 per month. I've promised to add at least two items a month, at least one of which will be a short story. So far, I've posted several short stories -- some
previously unpublished, some just obscure -- several maps, a couple of covers, story ideas and fragments that never got finished, etc., all visible only to patrons. I expect patrons will also get advance e-books of new novels, when there are any.
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 publications. I've
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 report. E-mail me if you'd like to sign up for it.
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 #116 went out June 6th.
