Mapping the Future

Although I haven’t spoken publicly about it yet, in the near-future I will be hosting my own booth at an upcoming convention. There’s not a lot I can say about it at the moment, but it’s going to be one of the biggest days of my life. I can’t wait. I really can’t. Months still bridge the gap between now and the grand day, but preparations are already underway!
 
In order to make the loudest noise I can and be heard over the sweltering soup, I will be releasing physical editions of every Mirage story for a scintillating value that is almost guaranteed to turn heads. I’ve never endeavoured to make a slick profit, and I will continue to practice this ideology for as long as I am able. I can’t confirm the prices yet, but I know it won’t disappoint anyone.
 
To add further value to these physical editions, I will be including a range of appendices that will touch upon the world of Mirage in new and exciting ways. Not only will readers of the physical editions understand a bit more of the larger picture, there will be a wealth of new content, such as a succinct timeline of events, revelatory narratives that just might tie off a few loose ends, and a handy map for each individual story.
 
Tonight I spent several hours drafting the geography of the Western Borderlands, where the recent short story, The Voice of the Wild, took place. It’s such a thrilling and peculiarly endearing experience to sketch in some of the blank spaces and see what the characters are seeing—and even what they’re not seeing.

Aren’t maps just the coolest?
