Cover Reveal: Howard Andrew Jones’ Pathfinder Tales: Beyond the Pool of Stars

Pathfinder Tales Beyond the Pool of Stars-small

We’ve received a lot of inquiries about Howard Andrew Jones’ third Pathfinder Tales novel, Beyond the Pool of Stars. It will be released by Tor Books on October 6, and we’ll be telling you more about it over the next two months. But in the meantime, here’s a glimpse at the gorgeous cover art by Tyler Jacobson (click for bigger version). Beyond the Pool of Stars is a fantastical adventure of deep-water danger and unlikely alliances set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. It follows Plague of Shadows and Stalking the Beast, but is a completely standalone adventure. Read more at Howard’s website, and stay tuned as we reveal more over the next few weeks.

Well, this book will end my don’t-buy-Tor-again streak. Howard Andrew Jones never failed to make a good story and he has been nothing but nice to me. He has stayed out of the fray of the Puppy mess too.

I think he and M.Harold Page are smart to stay out of the fray. I’ll probably drop being a Sad Puppy after this year’s Hugo. I’m interested in promoting the authors I like, not alienating them from sectors of the public. I had no idea that this would all erupt into an angry flame war. I just feel as if I dropped it now it would look more like a retreat. It isn’t. I know that the fiction I like is just as relevant and vibrant as any other. If this were the day before kindles and internet then I’d probably rail against the elitists harder. Self publishing has given a lot of genres a new life as well as new small press companies a competitive foothold.

I read Howard’s and Page’s blogs quite a bit but I seldom say anything there. They both have keen insight to the genre and study it. I’m sure they have opinions but I’m glad they haven’t said anything to me here. Odds are they would not welcome the Sad Puppies, I don’t know. At the same time, I really am trying not to hijack a thread and destroy a splash that a writer is trying to make. So all you Ape hating puppy kickers out there just remember that Howard can’t help that I am a fan. It is not his fault.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
