    The Star Chamber Show #14, featuring Lee Martindale!

    in Books

    The Star Chamber Show brings you an extra special episode this week when the incomparable, amazing Lee Martindale stops by for a visit!  


    Writer, editor, publisher, and Imaginarium’s first ToastMistress Lee Martindale has been called “a force of nature” and “Hell on Wheels”, and she comes by both honestly. Already a longtime human rights activist and internationally-recognized commentator on size rights issues, she turned to writing genre fiction shortly after becoming a paraplegic in 1991, making her first professional genre sale to Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Snows of Darkover anthology. Since then, her work has appeared in numerous venues and anthologies, including MZB Fantasy Magazine and three volumes of MZB’s Sword and Sorceress series, as well as Turn The Other Chick, Witch Way To The Mall, and Fangs For The Mammaries (all edited by Esther Friesner),, Warrior Wisewoman 2 (edited by Roby James), Catopolis (edited by Janet Dever-Pack & Martin Greenberg), and Low Port, edited by Sharon Lee & Steve Miller.


    Lee has edited two anthologies of original genre fiction, Such A Pretty Face: Tales of Power and Abundance, and The Ladies of Trade Town. A collection of her own short stories, tentatively titled HarpHaven Tales, is scheduled for publication Spring 2014.


    When not slinging fiction, Lee is a Named Bard, a veteran human rights activist, a Lifetime Active Member of SFWA (where she’s serving her second term on the Board of Directors), a fencing member of the SFWA Musketeers, a member of the SCA, and a popular guest at science fiction conventions all over the country. She and her husband George live in Plano, TX, where she keeps friends and fans in the loop at http://www.HarpHaven.net.


    So get ready, hold onto your seat, and prepare for one heckuva episode with Lee Martindale at 9pm Eastern this Wednesday!

    The Dragonslayer's Sword by Resa Nelson

    in Books

    The Dragonslayer's Sword
    Resa Nelson has been selling fiction professionally since 1988. She is a longtime member of SFWA (Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America) and is a graduate of the Clarion SF Workshop.
    For Astrid, a blacksmith who makes swords for dragonslayers, the emergence of a strange gemstone from her body sets in motion a chain of events that threaten to destroy her life. Her happiness is shattered when her sweetheart--the dragonslayer--disappears without a trace, and the life that she knows and loves implodes without warning.
    Astrid lives in a world of shapeshifters whose thoughts have the power to change not only themselves but others. Everything Astrid knows to be true is called into question when she learns the truth about her past and the mysterious family from which she was separated as a child.
    Reality turns inside out as Astrid gradually learns the truth about the people she loves as well as those she disdains.
