Barbara Hambly is as prolific as she is hard to pin down. As an author, her genre-bending approach to fiction has taken her from fantasy and horror to science fiction and mystery and everywhere in between, creating a host of memorable, quirky, and unusual characters along the way. Jo Walton has lauded Hambly’s amazing fantasy worldbuilding in novels like The Ladies of Madrigyn and Stranger at the Wedding, both of which are now available in ebook form for the first time, along with 15 of her other classic titles.
Over the next few weeks, Tor.com will be bringing you excerpts from several of the newly rereleased titles, courtesy of Open Road Media, as well as an ebook giveaway and guest blogging from Barbara Hambly herself. Later this week, we will be running an excerpt from the Locus Award-winning Those Who Hunt the Night, along with some personal reminiscences by the author. In the meantime, check out the video below for more on Hambly and her thoughts on writing, worldbuilding, and imagination….
