Exclusive Interview: “Herald Of The Black Moon” Author Stephen Deas


With his new sword & sorcery fantasy novel Herald Of The Black Moon (paperback, Kindle), writer Stephen Deas is concluding the Dominion trilogy he launched in 2021 with The Moonsteel Crown and continued in 2022’s The House Of Cats And Gulls. Which, all together, form a sequel to The Thief-Taker’s Apprentice series, and a prequel of sorts to his novel Dragon Queen, which was the first book of his Silver Kings series, itself part of his Memory Of Flames series. (Whew!)

In the following email interview, Deas explains what inspired and influenced Moon, including how he knew how it ended before he even started writing Moonsteel.
