I met kenscholes in 2006 at the World Fantasy Convention in Austin, Texas. My first impression was that of a pleasant man in an elbow-patched corduroy jacket; turns out he's a great singer, storyteller, and someone I've since been honored to call friend. One year later, at the same convention in Saratoga Springs, we celebrated his rare and much-talked-about five-book deal with Tor Books. His series, The Psalms of Isaak, was announced with much fanfare and glowing reviews at Book Expo America. The first book--Lamentation--will be released this winter, with the second book--Canticle--arriving fast on its heels.
You haven't heard of Ken Scholes yet, but trust me--this time next year you won’t remember a bookstore or library without him.
