The release date for MIRRORMAZE: A Dreampunk Anthology is fast approaching! Thank you so much to all of you who have already pre-ordered a copy! ❤
Today I want to put a spotlight on my short story which is part of this first-ever Dreampunk anthology, Thatcher Maugden And The Dream Witch.
Thatcher Maugden is an Edwardian-era magician who finds himself swept into the Dream World by a Nightmare Demon who tasks him with the duty of piloting a dream-skimmer and ridding the Dream World of any would-be trouble makers, aka lucid dreamers. He's resigned himself to his new surreal career until the day that he stumbles upon a Dream Witch who changes everything.
So, for those who really like to dig into fictional worlds and who have read my other books, I'm thrilled to tell you there is a connection. The story of Thatcher Maugden not only takes place in the same universe as the ROAM series, but Thatcher also happens to be Ethan Roam's great-great-grandfather! This is not specifically stated in the short story, but it was my intent while writing. Just some fun background info. and world-building extras for you. :)
MIRRORMAZE releases on December 8th and contains short stories from 22 science-fiction and fantasy authors!
