Today you can find my newest Under The Radar post over at Tor.com:
For this installment of Under The Radar—the biweekly column where we highlight books that have unjustly gone unnoticed—I’m going to stretch our definition a bit by highlighting Janny Wurts, an author who has been, well, definitely not unnoticed, but at least underappreciated by readers and critics alike.
Yes, Wurts has published well over a dozen novels with major publishers over the course of her three decade career, but still, somehow her name rarely comes up whenever someone asks for epic fantasy recommendations.
Since I happen to believe that, once it’s completed, her Wars of Light and Shadow series will be counted among the great enduring classics of epic fantasy, I thought I’d take this opportunity to spread the word a bit.
(And, if this convinced you to check out Janny Wurts’ novels, the Kindle edition of The Curse of the Mistwraith (my review), the opening volume of her Wars of Light and Shadow series, is on sale for $0.99 at the time I’m posting this, and the sequel The Ships of Merior for $1.99!)
