In the Claws of the Indigen
Spellgiver: Book II
As the Old Gods seize control of the capital, Larin and the others flee for their lives, the High Wizard’s creatures falling upon them like a steel rain.
Thus begins Book 2 of Spellgiver, a tale of heroism, hatred, wonder and betrayal. A tale in which Larin will meet his Master, Akul will reconcile with one horrible mistake from the past, and in which nothing matters but saving the king. Follow a six-limbed general as he fights his Gods for the soul of his people, row through the bubbling mud of an indigen swamp, view the world through the eyes of trapped, insane immortals, and vibrate to waves of magic from a long dead race.
And at the center of it all, Larin walks a narrow path between two evils, wanting nothing more than to go home again.
The World of Steve Rodgers’ Far Off Tales
Welcome to the portal. Step through and be transported to strange and distant lands. Lands where the American civil war was fought with cannons and magic. Lands from which interstellar travellers sent the early Polynesians on their maiden voyage across the seas. Be transported one hundred years into the future, where the police command insect-sized drones to control a biomod populace slowly turning into a separate species. Visit a world where Alzheimer patients are cured by a mysterious organization, or where primitive tribes flourish in the belly of a giant, spacefaring beast.
These stories and many more are the domain of the weird, the unquiet maelstrom that separates reality from “over there”. And they have come from the mind of Steve Rodgers, a weaver of the odd. Steve is an author of over two dozen science fiction and fantasy short stories, many of which have been published in on-line science fiction/fantasy magazines, as well as for-print anthologies for sale on Amazon. He is also the author of the Spellgiver series, which has received much acclaim and enthusiastic reviews.
Enjoy your visit to this strange place.

I’ve lagged terribly on telling readers what I’ve been up to with Spellgiver, and by now I’ve gotten several queries. So I know I need to step up my flapping.
Some time ago, I was asked to do a guest post for Rising Shadow (a Science Fiction/Fantasy Blog and database) on world-building in fantasy.
OK I finally read Cryptonomicon by N. Stephenson, a book that is as far removed from most other books as King-Kong is to your average orangutan.
