Hello, and thanks for checking out my work! My name is Chris Willrich (rhymes with “stitch”) and I write fantasy and science fiction. I am represented by Barry Goldblatt Literary.
My first novel, The Scroll of Years (Pyr, September 2013) is now on sale. Scroll recounts a turning point in the lives of the poet Persimmon Gaunt and the thief Imago Bone, lovers and partners in crime in a sword-and-sorcery world. Yearning to retire from adventuring, settle down, and start a family, Gaunt and Bone must instead flee magical assassins all the way to the farthest East of their continent, there to encounter a grand empire with dangers of its own.
That eye-catching cover art is by Kerem Beyit.
You can read their adventure “The Mermaid and the Mortal Thing” (originally appearing in Flashing Swords) for free at Lightspeed.
A chronologically later adventure, “The Sword of Loving Kindness”, is also available at Beneath Ceaseless Skies.
My second novel, The Dagger of Trust, will be a tie-in to Paizo Publishing’s Pathfinder game world. It features Gideon Gull, bard and secret agent, and a whole crew of colorful and dangerous characters. I am also working on The Silk Map, a sequel to The Scroll of Years.
Thanks to Matthew Kressel for the web design for this page, and thanks again to everyone who has visited. For now, I’m still maintaining a separate blog at Goblins in the Library, and you’re welcome to head there for more information.
