Leaves of Flame, by Benjamin Tate
January 20, 2012
My good friend Joshua Palmatier, who also writes as Benjamin Tate, has a new book out called Leaves of Flame, a follow-up to his critically acclaimed series opener, Well of Sorrows. I have to admit that I have not yet read the book, but I can tell you that Joshua/Benjamin is a) an excellent writer, b) one of the nicest people you could ever want to meet, and c) also a terrific editor. (I worked with him and Patricia Bray on their anthology After Hours: Tales from the Ur-Bar.) Joshua recently posted an essay at the Magical Words blog site about the magic system he developed for his series. I urge you to read it. It will whet your appetite for these books.
