The Return of “A Geography of Haarth” & “Meet The Minor Players”
With the anniversary of Daughter of Blood’s publication just a few ago, on 26 January, I thought it might be a good time to herald the restart of two previous The Wall of Night-related post series.
The first one, A Geography of Haarth (see the category in the far-right* side bar), ran from January 25, 2013, through to November 25, 2014. The series explored the full range of locales and places from the WALL series’ world of Haarth, accompanied by a quote from the books in which the place appeared, whether The Heir Of Night or The Gathering Of The Lost
The new posts will focus on the geography of Daughter of Blood in particular, although some of the earlier locales may be updated to include quotes from the three books (of four) published to date.
The second post series, Meet The Minor Players (see under About the Characters, again in the far-right side bar), was of shorter duration, running from August 13 – December 24, 2015.
It’s also incomplete as it was first interrupted by the publication of Daughter of Blood and subsequently deferred in favour of life, the universe, and everything else… I’m sure you all know how that goes.
So I’ll be picking up the old threads and continuing my focus on the minor players, because as I said in my Legend Award finalist’s interview (oh-so-long-ago now in 2013!): “Sometimes I think it’s the presence of the smaller characters that “makes” a story, creating texture around the main points of view.”
In terms of when and how, I anticipate the two series running on alternate Thursdays — although by way of warning, I shall ruthlessly interrupt their normal programming whenever big news (either my own or another’s) or an interview or guest post (etcetera) shoulders to the head of the blog queue.
So I hope you’ll drop by of a Thursday, to make the Grand Tour of Haarth and either reacquaint yourself with old friends or meet some new ones. 🙂
