In less than thirty minutes from now, a solar eclipse will enshroud most of the United States in darkness for two minutes. The laws of nature will be suspended. Day will become night, the temperature will drop, animals will start making noises… A biological sense of dread will take over, and it will feel like you’re standing on another planet.
For those of you who read LitRPG, eclipses are usually just a narrative mechanism to unleash beasts for killing. You will see the eclipse and feel an almost literal sense of dread as you prepare for the onslaught of new monsters.
An eclipse feels like a moment where something is different. It’s a moment of change. This past weekend, SciFan™ Magazine experienced our own eclipse. Each passing day our blog stats have nearly tripled in activity. Our stats on Amazon are at an all-time high. We’ve made several serious strides toward bringing Science Fantasy into the limelight, and we want to express our sincere gratitude to all of you who have helped us get there!
To date, we have received $95 in donations through our PayPal link. We have also received $60.56 in donations through our Submittable page, and 8 shirts with $100 in donations through Bonfire!
You are all owed our deepest gratitude!
As a token of our appreciation, we are offering our founder’s award-winning novel for FREE by subscribing to our newsletter.
Happy Eclipse 2017!

Character Spotlight: Dame Deidre
Deidre makes her first appearance in “The King’s Redress”:
The contestant stood tall. “May I present myself? I am Deidre, Your Majesty, of the baronage of White Castle.”
Lady Alice had said that they had a knight in the tournament, the king recalled. Had she meant Deidre?
“I am the niece of Sir Walter. It was not my intent to rob any of your most worthy knights of the tournament’s purse. Only to avenge my uncle’s betrayal by Sir Henry and restore honor to our family name.”
“His betrayal?” As if he had encountered a ghost, the pronouncement filled the king with dread.
“That was a close call,” Sir Alan said, firelight making his piercing gaze all the more fierce.
Dame Deidre took a swig of watered wine and shrugged. “I had it under control.”
“Nevertheless, it all sounds terrifying,” said Lady Joy.
Get better acquainted with Deidre during the Ides of March-Essentia Character showcase at 3 p.m. CST, here: https://www.facebook.com/events/1842866815961224/
Meet Deidre, King Bewilliam, and all the knights and ladies of his domain in The Bewildering Adventures of King Bewilliam literary historical fantasy series, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01BOW7NQQ/
Come join the event to meet the character!
