DM News:JordanCon Anthology Author: Sarah Sover

Recommended Posts

JordanCon 11 kicks off this Friday afternoon!  I can’t wait to mingle with other Wheel of Time fans.  It’s like a family reunion getting to see familiar faces and meeting new additions.  If you’re able to be in attendance, don’t forget to check out the Anthology signing session on Sunday morning at 10:00!


Our last interview is with Sarah Sover, talking about her submission “A Faerie Tale.”


First, can you tell us about your writing?  Is this your first published work?


I write fantasy hybrids, but this is my only short story so far. My debut novel, a comedic fantasy about grog-chugging trolls pulling a perilous heist, releases in September. So this is my first published work of fiction by 5 months!


Where does your story fall on the speculative fiction scale?


Fantasy meets Horror.


What excited you the most with writing this story?


The most exciting part has been discovering that there are people who appreciate my deranged brain-children. My weird stories finding a place to exist in the world is something I never actually thought would happen, let alone twice in one year. As exciting as the actual writing is, that beats it all, hands-down. And working with Robyn Huss. She’s amazing.


Are there any themes you want readers to get a sense of?


I’m going to have to go with the dangers of messing with forces beyond comprehension and flat out nihilism. For my work as a whole, there’s a definite baby-eating theme.


Is there a specific inspirational source you used for this story?


An image popped into my head and remained there for an entire day, so I had to jot it down. The story grew from that black-and-white picture and sat on my desktop, untouched, until I saw the call for submissions two days before the deadline.


What else would you like to say to your readers?


I’m thrilled to have my story featured in this Anthology alongside the works of some fantastic authors. I hope you’ll check out Double-Crossing the Bridge in the fall, and, as always, #BewareTheGoats. You can find me on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook @SarahJSover.

    • skin color is irrelevant in wot and I could care less how they cast it.  If they go by the books there will be many races and cultures and main characters like Tuon will be black.  All that is great, no problem.  Just hope they keep the modern political narratives out of this.  I want it to be more like game of thrones where they can do surprising things without offending someone.  If they have to be politically correct then it will ruin the tv show.  Many of the characters have do offensive things and have offensive thoughts so hopefully they can let that shine through.   One of the key traits of the wheel of time was all the different perspectives and all the communication barriers that would crop up between different groups of people.  hopefully they can let all that shine and they will need a very diverse cast to make it happen. 
    • In this thread: some people who are gonna lose their shit when non white actors get cast despite most characters not having an explicitly established skin colour and Randland being a far future setting where skin colour is entirely irrelevant.
    • To translate also Taivaanääreläiset.  Meaning, being beyond our scope.   When you had said what you said I heard a thousand of doors upon murky corridors inevitably close when you had said what you said I saw upon multitudes of crossroads wither thousands of signposts   And you only blicked your eyes looked away a moment as generations died and cities fell   Let days pass and moons pale let love but last till the morrow let death close the mouths of deceivers I do not believe in the ghost of love, palest   When you had said what you said within me there died a child that believed in a world without bounds when you had said what you said I was free to journey here where each is alone with their fate   That day left a shard of a shattering heaven in your throat and upon your brow a shard from the moonlight that day left a sea dark wave to the sides of your eyes and a witche's broom for a habitate of coldness   Let days pass and moons pale let love but last till the morrow let death close the mouths of deceivers I do not believe in the ghost of love, palest
