First, thank you, Kyra, for the opportunity to appear on your blog. I’m D.H. Aire, the author of Highmage’s Plight, the first book in a sci fi/fantasy series that was serialized in the ezine Separate Worlds in 2011 and published in novel form by Malachite Quills Publishing’s Chimera Tales imprint last year. Highmage’s Plight’s sequel Human Mage has also be serialized in Separate Worlds and I’m hoping to see it released as an ebook this spring.
In the future Professor George Bradley, computer staff in hand, “envisions” an archaeological site, which could turn history on its head, where he falls through a ripple in reality. He enters a world where: trolls think they are human; elves believe humans can’t do magic since they don’t have souls; a child of prophecy is dying of a curse; a seeress keeps too many secrets; and an ogre and a boy struggle to defend a keep against the evil ruling it. Welcome to a world where a starship crash landed, bringing about a war, which led to the laws of magic defeating those of science. But at a terrible cost, here a demon rages, intent on destroying all life. Its minions are intent on killing the human mage from another world. If that wasn’t bad enough, George’s computer is now rather sarcastic.
