Todd Jensen writes...

I just finished reading "The Spiral Path" today, and enjoyed it. One of my favorite elements was your narrating the scenes told from the point of view of the gnoll, ogre, etc. characters through their speech patterns; I think it added some variety to the story. I also enjoyed the humor in it (to me, one of the funniest lines was Valdread's "We stole a significant amount of cheese."). I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

I noticed a couple of Shakespeare allusions (at least, I thought they were Shakespeare allusions) such as the echo of the St. Crispin's Day oration in Throgg's backstory).

Hey, Todd, I'm so glad you enjoyed The Spiral Path. I really enjoyed writing it. And "We stole a significant amount of cheese." was one of my favorite lines, as well. And the St. Crispin's Day thing was also intentional.

Unfortunately, I was told my services would no longer be required for the next book in the series. This was a huge disappointment to me, of course. It was never really explained to me why they went with someone else. But they did. So you can read the next book in the series, but I can't bring myself to, I'm afraid.

Oh, well...
