(I'm busy writing novels, and with other work, so I only have time to write a longer article once a month. In-between, I’ll be writing shorter updates and bloglets on a variety of topics.)
Blue Prometheus, The Darkling Odyssey, and Fire Rising are now available in both paperback and hardback and can be ordered from bookshops and libraries. Of course, they're available on Amazon too (although the hardback titles may take several days to appear on my pages).
Fire Rising is now for sale on pre-order for $2.99. This is a pre-order special price for visitors to NedMarcus.com. Soon after publication the price will return to the regular price of $4.99. This book won't often be on sale, so now is a good opportunity to buy at a discounted price.
Just a note to let you know that the Blue Prometheus sale will be ending shortly.
Blue Prometheus is now reduced from $4:99 to 99c/p on Amazon. Also on sale on Kobo, Apple, B&N, and Google Play.Click to my books page for bookstore links...
I'm preparing to launch Fire Rising—Book 3 in the Blue Prometheus Series—later this month, and am running a series of promotions on Book 1, Blue Prometheus. From early next week, Blue Prometheus will be on sale for seven days, reduced from $4:99 to 99c/p. Kobo readers will have a special promotion. I will post again as soon as Blue Prometheus goes on sale.
The Blue Prometheus Series—fantasy books by Ned Marcus
Good vs. evil is a popular theme in fantasy. Here are some (non-fantasy) good and evil quotes showing the thoughts of different writers…
Good and evil is a popular theme in fantasy, and it’s interesting to think about what these words actually mean. In my stories, evil is a kind of unevolved thinking or force—something working against the development of the universe. Fantasy sometimes simplifies the nature of good and evil for storytelling purposes, but of course, it’s more complicated.
I’m collecting interesting quotations on good and evil. Feel free to send me any you like. Here’s one I like.
“While time lasts there will always be a future, and that future will hold both good and evil, since the world is made to that mingled pattern.” Dorothy L. Sayers
The Boatmen is a short fantasy story by Ned Marcus. It's set in a world, which is mostly unexplored, and humanity is fearful of what lies beyond its borders.
