In the company of C.S. Lewis & Terry Brooks

The Hawk and His Boy is currently at #25 on Amazon’s Bestselling list for Books > Literature & Fiction > World Literature > Mythology. C.S. Lewis’ Till We Have Faces is at #23. Terry Brooks’ The Sword of Shannara Trilogy is at #26. I’m honored to be ahead of Brooks. That doesn’t bother me (though it is pretty fun). Being so close to Till We Have Faces bothers me. Granted, the book’s been out for decades now and sales probably aren’t what they used to be. However, that’s one of the best books ever written. It’s amazing and bears repeated, careful readings. My book should not be even near. I’m not worthy. Hey, world. If you’re going to buy a book today, don’t buy mine. Buy Till We Have Faces.

    1. Definitely some tribute in there. I went through quite a few different names before I settled on this one. It was only after the fact (a few seconds) that I realized/recalled…Horse and His Boy. But I don’t mind the nod to him. He and Tolkien shaped my daydreaming when I was a child (along with Andrew Lang).
