Today is the birthday of my friend Gregory S. Close. (Don’t ask me how old he is, because I’d just make an obscure-fiction-reference joke and say he’s 36. Also, I don’t know.) Those of you who have been paying close attention (not a pun, I swear) know that he’s the person I refer to here in my blog as Loyal Reader, or LR for short. Bestest beta-reader, etc.
Oh, yeah — he’s also the author of an excellent novel. Almost forgot to mention that. How silly of me… 🙂
If you enjoy epic fantasy, or you’re looking for a gift for someone who does, please consider Greg’s novel In Siege of Daylight, which is a very epic fantasy novel.
One reviewer said, “Instead of being shackled to the norms of fantasy, [the author] bends them to his own purposes, allowing things to feel simultaneously familiar and new (…) enough real wonder, enough heart and strength in storytelling that, as a fantasy fan, it may feel like you’re reading about things that you know like the back of your hand for the very first time.”
If you prefer short fiction, Greg also has a story in the fantasy anthology The Dark Beyond the Door.
