Welcome to Swan Tower. I'm Marie Brennan, fantasy author and ex-academic. Here you can find not only the usual information on my books and short stories, but also various and sundry essays, musings, rants, screeds, and bits of unsolicited advice. Check out the links to the left, and if you'd like to be notified about updates to this site, sign up for the newsletter.
(4/10/13) Small news: a short story sale, for "Centuries of Kings." Bigger news: the sequel to A Natural History of Dragons is almost fully revised, and finally has a title! It will be called The Tropic of Serpents.
(2/2/13) The book page for A Natural History of Dragons now has actual content!
(1/24/13) Continuing my streak of being in every Clockwork Phoenix anthology to date, I have sold "What Still Abides" to Mike Allen for volume 4. The anthology will be out this summer.
