The author is pleased — delighted, actually — to announce that the next volume to be published in these pages will be The Last Days of Tereus Shelawn.
These episodes will tell how Tereus founded Xialo, a self-sufficient farm far outside the walls of Liamelia, and how Philomela, Duchess Theates used the settlement’s isolation to take long-deferred revenge. Here Tereus will speak for himself, with contributions from his sister-in-law Valeria Shelawn, who kept both a public chronicle and a private, encrypted journal.
All of the characters in these pages are dear to my heart. I’m particularly proud of this story, I think because Tereus is deeply flawed, and his story is tragic in the classical sense.
