A Plug for Bill Lancaster's Story "Stuck" and Scott Lynch's THE GENTLEMAN BASTARD SEQUENCE

Just came out on Tumblr, official website of Texas State University Writing Center. December issue. An enjoyable read if you get the chance and have an itch for round, sympathetic characters.

Also of interest is a fantasy series by relatively new author Scott Lynch. The Gentleman Bastard Sequence is a series of brilliant, entertaining, high-suspense novels about a group of wicked-smart thieves in an exquisitely-wrought world of intrigue, decadence, and danger. Backtracking is worth it in these books, when the world is one big chess game.
