I feel rather shallow writing something about my work when Japan has suffered the most awful of devastation. My thoughts and prayers are with the Japanese people and I hope for any little miricles among that destruction.
We write about such events without, perhaps, grasping the the enormity and tragedy of them. Yet another Military sf novel destroys New York, or Tokyo... A fanasy hero destroys/saves entire continents etc. It's very hard to get our heads around the real implications of these things.
I've tried to avoid the blockbuster disaster... other than saving the universe a few times in Karres books. That's OK isn't it?
So I thought I'd tell you about what I have written
Basically - to give you a quick rundown of Dave's writing career -I wrote THE FORLORN sf self-standing book; the various RATS, BATS & VATS books - which are humorous mil sf/ social satire about uplifted rats and bats..., and the PYRAMID SCHEME books which are adventure/fun and humor set set by a SF maguffin in the worlds of mythology. The Heirs of Alaexandria books are Fantasy meets alternate history - Where the great library of Alexandria was not destroyed and magic still exists. The Karres books are sequels to James H Schmitz's classic WITCHES OF KARRES this is space opera, in the grand old tradition. And then there are DRAGON'S RING and DOG AND DRAGON -which are high fantasy if Ffarhad and the Grey Mouser are High Fantasy with a Loki-rouge dragon.
And then of course from Naked Reader... WITHOUT A TRACE - a MG story which is what you'd get if Willard Price had written sf.
And that right now... is that.
