DARK GODS AFTER TELLURIA by Barton Paul Levenson is Released
by BWW News Desk - Aug 23, 2016

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit US publisher, announced the print and eBook release of the dark fantasy novel Dark Gods of Alter Telluria from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, author Barton Paul Levenson. A two-time winner of the Parsec Short Story Contest, Levenson's other novels include 'The Celibate Succubus,' 'Max & Me' and 'Year of the Human.' Pittsburgh astrophysics professor Milo Stanford finally had it good for a change. A one-year sabbatical to teach in London and a beautiful new girlfriend. No worries to speak of-until the day he lost it all. Caught outside in a Freak thunderstorm, Milo is struck by lightning and wakes up on the parallel world of Alter Telluria. Unable to return home, Milo must adjust to life on a new planet of nation-states that are ruled by supernatural beings, a strange, pseudo-Victorian culture, and a pantheon of dark gods who delight in wreaking havoc on the lives of the local denizens. While struggling to adapt to his new situation, Milo is offered a position in the Scholar's Tower by the vampire ruler Sania, Mistress of Lake Gulia. Despite his abrasive personality and lack of deference, he quickly rises to become one of her most trusted advisors. When the ruling wizard of neighboring Carthusia kidnaps Sania in an attempted coup, Milo is chosen to lead a hazardous rescue mission into the stronghold of the wizard's indomitable magic-where the dark gods are certain to test his mettle. Can Milo rescue Sania and restore her as ruler of Lake Gulia, or do the dark gods of Alter Telluria have other plans?

BWW Blog: Hannah Love - Summer of Studying, Sweating, and Singing
by Guest Blogger: Hannah Love - Aug 18, 2016

Summer is officially over for me, and I'm immersed into the school year again. I'm already working on a school production of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and my classes are already piling on the homework, tests, and projects. Somehow, I'm not fazed by this mass chaos. It probably is related to the fact that I did not take a break this summer. Summer classes filled my summer until the second week of July (don't worry, I took these classes to lighten my junior year), babysitting was a routine job for me, and I was in a production of Shrek the Musical at a local community theatre.  (more...)
