Trilogy Completed!

It's about ten years since I last wrote The End on Book Three of a trilogy (The Alchemist's Pursuit) unless you count my three YA stories about The Runner. Indeed I never thought I would attempt another threesome.  I am therefore very happy to have done so once more, having just turned in to Night Shade Books, Merlin Redux, the final book of "The Enchanter General."  Volume One, Ironfoot, will be published this coming October in both paperback and hardcover.
