James Enge @ Adventueres on SciFi Publishing

James Enge, author of Blood of Ambrose,is the latest guest on the newly-returned Adventures in SciFi Publishing podcast. They discuss "Leiber vs. Tolkien fantasy, massive fantasy epics, and his beef with H.G. Wells."

Host Shaun Farrell reviewed the novel back in June. His verdict then: "James Enge writes Blood of Ambrose with a subtle elegance that disguises his extraordinary narrative skill. The humor is natural and unforced. The characterization rings true, even under the revelation of shocking realities. The horror is never glorified, and it is all the more horrific for it. And the plot grows with organic grace. You won’t find any quests here, nor the usual clichés or trappings of epic fantasy. No, these pages drip the unexpected, and they will make you laugh and scream and cry and thirst for more. Simple put, Blood of Ambrose is a powerful and fun stand alone novel."

The Blood of Ambrose sounds like my kind of book! I'll add it to my to be read list. Thanks for the great article. Check out my first and recently released novel, Long Journey to Rneadal. This exciting tale is a romantic action adventure in space and is more about the characters than the technology.
