Dean Whitlock reading and Q&A

Meet DEAN WHITLOCK at STAR CAT BOOKS in BRADFORD, VT, on Saturday, Nov 17 3-5pm for his reading from FIREBOY, his latest book in the Carver Series.

NOW IN PRINT: SKY CARVER, RAVEN, and FIREBOY.

All three volumes of the Carver’s World Series are now back in print in trade paperback format, including Fireboy, which was originally released only in ebook format.

Dean Whitlock gives us a unique world of his own creation—a true world, deeply perceived and fully realized. Magic runs throughout the adventure, along with suspense, terror, and poignancy . . . we can only wish for other journeys to come.
      —Lloyd Alexander, author of The Black Cauldron, the Prydain Chronicles, and many more fantasy adventures

A nice blend of introspection and action.
     —Kirkus Reviews
