I’ve been renovating

I hope you like it.  I’ve broken out the series in the bibli­og­raphy so they now each have their own page, but have left the text in the plain list alone.  I’ve added cover images to the sub-pages.  More impor­tant, I’ve also added .pdfs and .html of the first chap­ters (or prologues) of all of the DAW and Luna novels that have been published.  I will, hope­fully closer to the publi­ca­tion date, also add the first chapter for Cast in Silence.  

I haven’t added links for the first chap­ters of the Sundered series, because unfor­tu­nately, I have no elec­tronic copies of those; they were written in the days when flop­pies seemed like a good back-up medium, and the flop­pies with the files didn’t survive the passage of time all that well.  (BenBella worked from the printed pages of the orig­inal mass market editions, rather than an actual text copy, because I didn’t have any elec­tronic text versions to send them).  As time permits, I’ll try to type them in.

The one thing I would like to do is start to put a few short stories up on the site for down­load, and I’m taking votes or sugges­tions at this point; if there’s an out-of-print story in partic­ular that you want to see but haven’t been able to track down, please leave me a message in the comments to this post.

    I’ve never been able to find Echoes, the Kallan­dras short story.

    I was wondering if you might compile a list of short stories that pertain to the sun sword world? There are so many short stories that I’m sure I’ve missed a few. Thanks! :)

  3. Megan says:

    I’ve never found Echoes either. I’d enjoy reading that one or Warlord.

    The reno­va­tion is pretty. I like it. Thanks for all the wonderful books you’ve written. Thanks.

  4. I think these are the only short stories I’ve written that take place within the West universe.

    Echoes, a story about Kallan­dras’ early years
    Warlord, a story about the origin of Jewel’s domicis, Avandar.
    The Memory of Stone, a story about the head of the Maker’s guild, his appren­tice, and her creations.
    Hunt­brother, a story about Cynthia of Maubreche that takes place after Hunter’s Death.
    The Black Ospreys, a story about The Kalakar and the forma­tion of the Black Ospreys.
    The Weapon, a story taking place in the time of Veralaan and the Blood Barons.

    … I say I think, because these are the only ones I could think of when looking at the actual short stories.

    I second the requests for “Echoes” and “The Memory of Stone,” since those are the two West short stories my library couldn’t procure for me. Other than that, what­ever you like best, maybe.

    A collec­tion of stories from the world of the Sun Sword would be wonderful. I’d love to read them, but it’s diffi­cult to locate all of them, and I hate buying an entire book for only one story.

    I would love to read “Warlord” and the “Black Ospreys.” Haven’t been able to find either of them.
