There’s an odd debate in sci-fi and fantasy writers’ circles. Some of them absolutely hate maps and say they are useless. And that readers don’t care about them.
I happen to like maps, of any kind. Those that show real countries and cities, and those that take us to imaginary realms. As I work on the sequel to Flight of the Spark, I’ve had to expand and refine my map of Tlefas.
Readers of Flight of the Spark will recognize some of the towns. The others? Well, that’s where some of the action of Flicker of the Flame takes place.
Just what that is would be telling. If all goes well, Flicker of the Flame will be out this year.
