Since founding Fantasist Enterprises a dozen years ago, Will Horner has taken readers to the high seas (Sails and Sorcery), the heroic past (Blood and Devotion) the inner city (Modern Magic), and beyond. Promising to “Awaken Your Wonder,” FE has become a showcase for some of today’s top and up and coming writers. Some of the luminaries have included Elaine Cunningham, Jay Lake, Jonathan Maberry, Maria V. Snyder, and Catherynne M. Valente.
What sets FE apart, however, is its blending of the visual and narrative arts. All of their books are illustrated.
Since 2008, when FE began publishing my novels in the Veins Cycle, I’ve had the opportunity to see my characters brought to life by some terrific artists. Most recent among them is Rhonda Libby, who will be providing the cover and more than a dozen interior illustrations for Vortex: Book Three of the Veins Cycle.
Recently, I got the chance to sit down with Rhonda and Will for a long brainstorming session that centered on the art of Votex. It was an amazing meeting, and you can read about it over at the FE website. While you’re there, you might consider poking around and seeing what else FE has been up to over the years. You won’t be disappointed.
Now go awaken your wonder!
