A brief discourse on freedom to read and freedom to speak

I’m reading in Weyburn tonight at the Weyburn Public Library. It’s partly in honor of Freedom to Read Week, and so here, in a nutshell, is my Freedom to Read philosophy: People should be free to read whatever they want. Want more? Okay, I’ll add this: People should be free to write and say whatever …

Errant Dreams gives Magebane 5/5

Another nice review for Magebane, this one from Errant Dreams: Lee Arthur Chane’s Magebane is an original and delightful tale of epic fantasy and magic, steampunk science, adventure, tragedy, and love….

SciFiGuy features me in an interview

There’s a nice big interview with me up at SciFiGuy.ca, mostly focused on the upcoming release of Song of the Sword, Book 1 in The Shards of Excalibur. Alas, it’s still the upcoming release because printer problems delayed it past the hoped for October 15, but they promise me it’ll be ready at month’s end–which …

My big event was at 4 p.m. in the Mae Wilson Theatre of the Moose Jaw Cultural Centre, a beautifully restored 430-s eatVaudeville-era theatre. There I conducted an on-stage …

Festival of Words: the first day

Yesterday at the Festival of Words went well, though I was late to the party, which, after all, began on Thursday. In fact, I showed up for my reading without passing by whatever registration desk there must have been somewhere and so proceeded without a name tag. Fortunately, no one threw me out for not …

See me at the Saskatchewan Festival of Words!

I’ll be a presenter for the first time at this year’s Saskatchewan Festival of Words in Moose Jaw July 16 to 19. You’ll find a complete list of presenters here; by virtue of having a name that starts with “W”, I’m right at the bottom. Don’t go looking for me on the schedule just yet, …

I’ve confirmed three signing events for Terra Insegura so far, if you’d like to come out and get a signed copy and meet me in person. (Which might be interesting to some people, although I spend all day with me and sometimes I get pretty tired of myself.) The first signing will be at the …
