Endangered Species

I always regret that my SF books are less popular than my Fantasy. SF actually takes more work to write! Personally, I believe that my output is equally readable in either genre. I am fortunate that every one of my published books is still available, but I fear that this situation is likely to change in the near future. E-books do have a slight maintenance cost, and contracts allow publishers to discontinue them when profits turn negative. Two books that I especially love and that I believe may be at risk are Pock’s World and Wildcatter. Both are SF, but if you are a fan of my writing, please do try these. I promise that you will meet some lovable characters (in hateful situations, of course).

Daily special May 29th

Amazon has selected my series "A Handful of Men" as a Kindle Daily Deal on May 29. The e-book set (4 novels) will sell for $3.99.  This is the second Pandemia series, sequel to "A Man of His Word". The offer applies only in the USA, I'm afraid.

Another book to look forward to

This blog must be the skinniest since Kilroy, whom most of you won't remember.  To liven it up a little, I've added news of another book in the mill: Pillar of Darkness.

About Dave Duncan

divider

Originally from Scotland, Dave Duncan has lived all his adult life in Western Canada, having enjoyed a long career as a petroleum geologist before taking up writing. Since discovering that imaginary worlds are more satisfying than the real one, he has published more than fifty novels, mostly in the fantasy genre, but also science fiction, young adult, and historical. Thanks to the arrival of digital publishing, all of his books are now available in e-book and POD formats.

His most successful works have been fantasy series: “The Seventh Sword”, “A Man of His Word” and its sequel, “A Handful of Men”, and seven books about “The King’s Blades”

He and Janet have been married since 1959. They have one son and two daughters, who in turn are responsible for a spinoff series of four grandchildren. Dave now lives in Victoria, BC.

He is both a founder member and honorary lifetime member of SFCanada, and a member of the CSFFA Hall of Fame.

His agent is Richard Curtis at www.CurtisAgency.com.
