Last week, in case you some how missed it, saw the publication of The Island Deception, book #2 in my trilogy about a Las Vegas magician who infiltrates a medieval world. This week I’m sharing some early reviews and new guest posts I’m particularly proud of.
New Guest Posts & Interviews
First of all, I’m honored to have some guest posts and interviews at legendary SF/F venues this week:
- Chimeras in Science and Science Fiction, a new nonfiction article at Baen Books.
- My Favorite Bit, a guest post at Mary Robinette Kowal’s blog.
- Science in Sci-fi, Fact in Fantasy is the topic of this week’s Beyond the Trope podcast.
- 5 Things About The Island Deception goes up on Terribleminds Thursday.
If you aren’t regularly visiting all three of these sites, you’re missing out.
Early ISLAND Reviews
Several book reviewers were kind enough to read advanced copies of The Island Deception, and had nice things to say about it. For example:
“If you like your heroes touched with a spark (or snark) of anti-hero, Quinn is a gem.”
–Marlene Harris, Reading Reality.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series, The Rogue Retrieval, and this sequel didn’t disappoint.”
–Mervi, Mervi’s Book Reviews.
“Good job, Koboldt. I both love and hate you now.”
–Anna Tan, Deeply Shallow
“It’s amazing! Five Swords Up!”
–Keith Willis, Writing@Knight
“A series of mysteries and secrets pulls you along in a race for the finish, that, while leaving you satisfied, also leaves a slaking thirst for the next book.”
–Angel Leya, Angel’s Book Reviews
And then there was this.
All right, @DanKoboldt. How long until the release of the sequel to The Island Deception?

Heh heh. You’ll have to wait until February 2018.
