I’ve been fortunate enough to have my work featured in a few Warcraft-related publications that I’d like to talk about.
Folk & Fairy Tales of Azeroth is a charming collection of tales from a marvelous group of authors. The book features a wide range of styles, from ghost stories told around campfires to myths about the creation of the world. My story, “Visage Day,” tells of a young dragon trying to figure out how he wants others to see him… and how he wants to see himself. I figure if a time-traveling dragon can feel doubts about how they fit in, yet manages to find acceptance and love, then maybe all of us can, too.
Grimoire of the Shadowlands and Beyond is a project I co-authored with my dear friend, Blizzard Historian Supervisor Sean Copeland. Told from the point of view of one of the brokers (a suspicious group of travelers who often come across as just a bit too friendly), the book examines the people and the places featured in our Shadowlands expansion. Without getting into spoilers, I will say there are a lot of fun clues planted in this book that ponder the nature of the universe and hint at things to come.
World of Warcraft: Comic Collection, Volume One is, as the name implies, a collection of comics which tied into the Warlords of Draenor, Legion, and Battle for Azeroth expansions. There’s a great range of stories here from wonderful writers and amazing artists. I plotted a story called “Windrunner: Three Sisters” which was scripted by my inspiring friend and colleague, Christie Golden. As Alleria Windrunner returns to Azeroth after a thousand years away, she reunites with her sisters and learns just how much each of them has changed.
All of these projects were a joy to be a part of, and I’m humbled to be in the company of so many talented writers and artists. I hope you enjoy them.
