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 left link to relevant pages (generally on Amazon). To the right, that's a picture of me visiting Arcosanti, followed by ads, and maybe my Twitter feed. 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 1994 and I don't take much of anything down, so it's probably around somewhere. Of course, much of the information is out of date.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.

I have launched my second Kickstarter campaign, to finance publication of Tom Derringer and the Aluminum Airship, my attempt at a "young adult" steampunk novel that turned out to not meet New York's standards for either "young adult" or "steampunk." Check it out.
The last Ethshar serial, Ishta's Companion, has ended. I have no plans to do any more serials on this model. My thanks to everyone who contributed!
The finished novel will eventually be published by Wildside Press under the title Relics of War.
I read the original novel in manuscript, before Tor published it in 1995, and loved it, so when Stuart said the rights were available I couldn't resist. It's a bizarre, wildly inventive novel.
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 #86 went out August 28th.
