For any of you who follow my blog, Twitter or Facebook know, I’m a weekly contributor over at WinterisComing.net, a Game of Thrones/A Song of Ice and Fire fan website. I have started a series of articles examining the show’s character archetypes and also taking a swing at how the leads fit into Joseph Campbell’s Hero’s Journey Monomyth. I’ll set up a page here for the WiC articles and here are links to my first three archetype series pieces:
Southern Reach trilogy author Jeff VanderMeer has kindly provided a wonderful blurb for the series and I’m jazzed about it: “Preston’s Steampunk series is not just entertaining and fun but full of great characters who deepen and change over the course of the books. Expect amazing Steampunk scenes, yes, but also people you care about and a lovely mix of the comic and serious. Just pure storytelling at its best.”—Jeff VanderMeer, author of the Southern Reach novels
Thanks to everyone for being so patient and encouraging on this one. I hope you enjoy the book(s).
P.S. I also have a Romulus Buckle universe short story out, entitled “An Officer and a Gentleman,” which offers a quick peek into an earlier event in Buckle’s life.
