William L. Hahn

Will Hahn has been in love with heroic tales since age four, when his father read him the Lays of Ancient Rome and the Tales of King Arthur. He taught Ancient-Medieval History for years, but the line between this world and others has always been thin; the far reaches of fantasy, like the distant past, still bring him face to face with people like us, who have choices to make.

Will didn't always make the right choices when he was young. Any stick or vaguely-sticklike object became a sword in his hands, to the great dismay of his five sisters. Everyone survived, in part by virtue of a rule forbidding him from handling umbrellas, ski poles, curtain rods and more.

Will has written about the Lands of Hope since his college days (which by now are also part of ancient history). His first tales include "Three Minutes to Midnight", a slightly-dark sword and sorcery novelette, and the first two tales in the Shards of Light series, entitled "The Ring and the Flag" and "Fencing Reputation", as well as "The Plane of Dreams", a tale of adventurerers and heroes, and "Games of Chance", the first volume of his Magnus Opus "Judgement's Tale".


You can find a free Compendium of information about the Lands, including maps of the Lands, on his shared website The Independent Bookworm. He also is on Facebook
