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 site here 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 Of course, some of the information may be out of date.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.
I have launched a Patreon page where I'll be posting whatever odd little items come to hand that I think may interest readers. A pledge of $1.00 or more gets you access. I'm charging the pledged amount for the items I consider more significant (e.g., an unpublished short story), and posting other stuff (maps, for example) that patrons can see for free. Eventually I expect patrons will also get ebooks of my new releases before they appear on Amazon or wherever.
Wildside is offering a free sampler of my work. Not sure for how long.
New from Misenchanted Press: Hazmat & Other Toxic Stories, a collection of twenty-one of my nastiest short stories. Available from the usual suspects.
For the first time, Misenchanted Press has published non-fiction -- my sister's obsessively-researched, lavishly-illustrated history of social dance in Lowell, Massachusetts.
My daughter Kyrith is now doing a webcomic called Misguided Light. Check it out!
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 once or twice a month when there's no serial in progress, weekly if there are serial updates 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 #106 went out July 23rd.
