Blog Tour: Marcher Lord Press - Day 3

And the winner is.....*drumroll*

Delightful artist and blogger at She Sure is Sketchy! Your prize will arrive via the internets shortly.

So Jeff corrected me. The deal with the free e-books is that if you order one book on launch day (Oct 1st) you will receive Into the Breach: The Marcher Lord in History and Legend and if you order two books you will get both that one and the woooonderful A Marcher Lord Gallery: Speculative Art by Christian Artists. So what are these books you want to buy to get the super cool artbook for free?

Hero Second Class by Mitchell Bonds is "a delightful roast of all the fantasy fiction elements we hold dear. It is said that only someone who loves something can truly lampoon it. So it is in this case. Bonds' novel is a riot."

The Personifid Invasion by R. E. Bartlett: "Bartlett is previously published. She is the author of The Personifid Project (Realms 2005).

In that previous novel Bartlett introduced us to personifids (not personifieds): human-like artificial bodies into which humans can transfer their consciousness and thus live forever.

The Personifid Invasion is the standalone sequel that continues to explore life in a far-future society in which death is no longer an issue, at least to those who can afford personifid bodies. "

Summa Elvetica: A Casuistry of the Elvish Controversy by Theodore Beale
"In Summa Elvetica Beale brings us a delightfully speculative what-if scenario: what if the Catholic Church (or something very like it) existed in a fantasy world in which dwelt non-human intelligent races like orcs, trolls, and elves?

At some point in such a world the leading ecclesiastics would have to wrestle with the question of whether or not these demi-humans have souls and therefore ought to be the subject of evangelization by the Church."
