Today, in some respects…adopting a rescue mutt is a sign of social distinction. In these circles, owning a purebred…is considered as immoral and déclassé as owning a blood diamond.

Dragon Con 2014 begins!

I was introduced to Senlin Ascends by a friend who claimed that it was one of the best self- or small press-published books he’d ever read. Once I picked it up, it didn’t take me long to realize that he was right. The style, the world-building, and the story as a whole was engrossing – I was definitely left wanting more, and thankfully there will be, as Senlin Ascends is part of a trilogy called The Books of Babel.
While this can’t exactly be called historical fiction, straight-up fantasy, or steampunk, the fact that it takes some of the best elements from all of those genres – and includes great characters as well – was refreshing to say the least. I highly recommend this novel for fans of any of the above, or if you simply want a great read about an ‘ordinary’ man’s struggle against what I’ll lightly refer to as ‘evil’. I don’t want to say any more for fear of spoiling the story, but let’s just say that it’s certainly not predictable.
I was lucky enough to get in contact with the author, Josiah Bancroft, and have a conversation with him via email. We talked about geeking out, how great the editing was, Josiah’s preferred way to write, and more!
