AISFP 223 – Peter Stenson, FIEND

Timothy C. Ward interviews Peter Stenson, author of FIEND, from Crown Publishing, Tim’s favorite read so far this year. He reviewed FIEND at SF Signal and cannot wait for you to discover this debut author. Horror, and even zombies, were not exactly Tim’s preference for a late summer read, but Peter’s story refused to let him go and only got better as the ending left him reeling. It’s also no wonder the same editor that worked with Peter, Julian Pavia, also edited READY PLAYER ONE, and the EX-HEROES series. For those who have read FIEND, there is a spoiler section at the thirty minute mark (clearly warned), where I get to ask him about the ending and other behind the scenes topics.

Rys Rising: Book I by Tracy Falbe

Tracy Falbe spent 15 years crafting 8 novels in her rys fantasy world. In The Rys Chronicles Dreibrand Veta overthrows a Goddess, wins the greatest treasure ever, and then must face a reckoning with the great empire of his homeland that he betrayed. In Rys Rising, Amar rises as the unstoppable warlord of Onja. He conquers great cities and gathers armies to take against the ancient and magical realm of Nufal. Readers worldwide have enjoyed Falbe’s fiction. Derek W. declared “I cannot put your books down.” and Teressa H. said “The Rys are unlike any characters in any other fantasy books I’ve ever read.” Falbe invites you to read Rys Rising: Book I, your gateway to a new reading addiction.

Rys Rising tells of the beginning of the rys, who were born of experimental spells cast by the ancient race called the tabre. The rys are reviled by their creators, and when conflict finally erupts the humans of two civilizations will be forced by their magical masters into an epic conflict. All will be threatened with slavery or death or worse.
