I’m hosting the December edition of Broadly Speaking on Magicians and Shamans, featuring authors Sarah Avery and Katherine Lampe.
Sarah Avery’s sword and sorcery has appeared in Black Gate, where she also writes a weekly column on teaching and fantasy literature. A collection of contemporary fantasy novellas, tentatively titled Tales from Rugosa Coven, will be published by Dark Quest Books in 2013.
Based in Paonia, Colorado, Katherine Lampe is the author of the Caitlin Ross supernatural fantasy series. A lifelong student of world mythology and folklore as well as a professional Tarot reader, Ms.Lampe’s focus is to create human characters in a world where magic is a practical part of everyday life. She’s known in Celtic music circles as a vocalist and flute player, and for fifteen years was the host and producer of “Whiskey in the Jar” on KVNF public radio. She enjoys a good single malt now and again. Find Katherine Lampe at www.smashwords.com
