April is to be a huge promotion month for my books. AMAZON will feature about TWO DOZEN of my titles at discount prices, most of them at $0.99, for the whole month. On the 6th, the ever-popular The Reluctant Swordsman will be on sale at all US retailers for $1.99. On the 2nd, my first novel, A Rose-Red City will be featured at that price, and on the 10th it will be the turn of my latest, Portal of a Thousand Worlds. Enjoy this bonanza while it lasts!

If you purchased Portal of a Thousand Worlds in any form of e-book you will receive within a few days a notice of a corrected free download, which will include the map that was accidentally omitted. If you bought a paper copy, that correction isn't possible. However, the map of the Good Land has now been added to the Maps page of this website. If you right-clink on the map you want and then left-click on "copy Image", you can post it to any file you want and print it out. It's not a perfect solution, but it is the best we could manage.

Tor and ORIM are holding a sweepstake to give away two tablets “loaded” with high-quality F&SF. There’s one of my own titles in there, so I believe! Closing date is the end of March. Read about it here: https://theportalist.com/book-lovers-enter-to-win-a-tablet-loaded-with-sci-fi-and-fantasy-titles My Pock’s World is currently featured at $1.99 at all US outlets for the month of March. Portal of a Thousand Worlds will be featured at $1.99 at all US outlets on 3/30/17.

Only a couple of weeks after PORTAL OF A THOUSAND WORLDS was released did I get to see a copy, and only now am I free to do something about the problem. Why ORIM chose to publish this great, complicated tale without a map escapes me completely. I am truly sorry that so many of my fans have already had to struggle through the book without its aid. They are selling cars without the steering wheels. I hope to have a downloadable version available by tomorrow.

At long last, my Portal of a Thousand Worlds is to be released on February 14.I began this book in 2006, so it took me about as long to write as J R R Tolkien needed to complete Lord of the Rings. I make no further comparisons, but both Booklist and Publishers Weekly have reviewed Portal very positively. Read more here.
