Howard Andrew Jones
Iím the author of The Desert of Souls (Thomas Dunne Books 2011), a historical fantasy set in the 8th century Abbasid caliphate featuring my characters Dabir and Asim, whoíve been appearing in a variety of short fiction venues since 2000. My Pathfinder novel, Plague of Shadows, appeared in March of 2011. My collection of Dabir and Asim short stories, The Waters of Eternity, became available in e-form from Thomas Dunne Books in November of 2011. More Dabir and Asim novels will follow, and I have recently signed to write a sequel to Plague of Shadows.
Iím proud to have been the driving force behind the rebirth of interest in Harold Lambís historical fiction, and have assembled and edited 8 collections of Lambís work for the University of Nebraska Press. Iíve served as Managing Editor of Black Gate magazine since 2004.
When not helping run my small family farm or spending time with my amazing wife and children, I can be found hunched over my laptop or notebook, mumbling about flashing swords and doom-haunted towers. Iíve worked variously as a TV cameraman, a book editor, a recycling consultant, and most recently, as a writing instructor at a mid-western college.
