Once again, I’ve posted an extended article over at Hardcore Worldbuilding, my Substack column. Or whatever you’re supposed to call them. The topic this time is guns. Specifically, I’m talking about guns and gunpowder weapons in fantasy. Considering how many stories I’ve written in that vein (Hidden Hills, some of the Otherworld episodes, the unfinished Shadows Before the Sun), it’s obvious where I stand on that argument.
Check it out, subscribe, and help me grow. Please. I’m begging you. I need validation!
Seriously, though, it’s one of my better articles, I think. On March 1, I’ll post #3, about the intersection of magic and education. From that point on, new posts will come on the 1st and 16th of each month. February’s short, so you got this one a day early.
