SFFS Snippet from THE ELF MAGE (2012) for 12/17 Happy reading!

Something was definitely screwy. Lane wondered how the laptop automatically brought up the map he’d wanted—without him touching the keyboard. That had been right out there. But an email from Max? How was that even possible? DSL in the woods? The elves didn’t even have electricity! Yet here it was. Granted, Astan said that fragile, [...]

Speculative Fiction’s Fascination with Green Beings

Continuing our fascination with science fiction this week, and especially because my new hero is a green-skinned reptilian shapeshifter, the Clan Elves welcome author Bryce Ellicott! Take it away, Bryce! I have always found our collective fascination with “little green men” to be, well, fascinating. Not so much the “little” part, but the “green” part. [...]

Another great review for The Elf Queen! 4.0 Recommendation at GraveTells!

Today’s news is a recommended review at GraveTells, a site which normally focuses more on paranormal romance, but as the reviewer says,  ”Although Elf Queen is a Fantasy with Romantic elements rather than a Paranormal Romance, I believe it will appeal to readers who prefer less sexual tension in books, and it is entirely appropriate for [...]

The Elf Child gets a dynamite review from TCM Reviews!

“The Elf Child, second in the Clan Elves of the Bitterroot Series, can be read as a stand-alone, but is probably a richer reading experience if read in sequence. Lyndi Alexander has created a very interesting story that occupies a rather unique niche in the fantasy genre; not exactly urban fantasy, but with hints of [...]
