BEA: Interesting books part 1

I’m always on the lookout for interesting small press and self-published books, and The Soulstealer War, by W. L. Hoffman, caught my interest. I chatted with the author at BEA for quite a while, and according to him, it’s an epic fantasy with SF elements, quantum physics, and philosophy.

The first book is called The First Mother’s Fire, and it has cover art by Boris Vallejo and Julie Bell. You can see the cover art in this wall hanging that was hanging in the booth:

Here’s a wall hanging of the map from the book.

The map was drawn by the author and it’s beautiful.

I haven’t read the book, so I really have no idea if it’s any good, but it sounds interesting and I look forward to reading it.
