Enthralling and Mature
Ugh, I had hoped to update this news page more regularly. Soon the flurry of reviews will be over, and it’ll be too late, and I’ll wish I had. I’m in Denver right now, flying to Chicago in a couple of hours. Which is great, because (probably not coincidentally) we just got two great notices in the Chicago papers. The

I am not a famous author, so the amount of attention — good and bad, but mostly good — being paid to the book is … I can’t describe it. It makes me so happy. See for example Worlds in a Grain of Sand, Mabfan’s Musings, The Book Studio, Strange Ink, and so on. I haven’t been linking to blogs much, partly because the volume of coverage has been large and hard to sift through, and partly because — I’m being honest here — I have a really hard time reading coverage of The Magicians, and so I mostly stick to reading stuff that has been pre-approved for me as non-painful by other people, and nobody is filtering my blogs coverage for me. I will read it, all of it. But not till I’m done with my tour and can have a proper nervous breakdown.
