The 2019 Phoenix Fan Fusion is quickly approaching. One more week and Duncan’s Books and More wanted to give all our readers and customers a post about our wonderful AWW group and our pop up bookstore.
I’m sure some of you already know that we’ve been working with the Amazing Wicked Writers for four years, heading out to Phoenix now Fan Fusion every year with our group of authors. This year is our fifth year and there are some fantastic changes for our fifth anniversary.
This year, Amazing Wicked Writers is also Artists Wildly Working, thanks to our organizer and head Terry L. Smith, who not only is an amazing Science Fiction author with incredible jewelry but is branching out into art. Her work is great and I know you all will want to buy it as soon as you see what she has been up to. Now, we will introduce our Amazing group.
First up we have some of our original group that began five years ago. Of course, this includes Terry L. Smith aka T.L. Smith who began the group and is in charge of all the participants. She writes mythology/science fiction fusion, sells jewelry to match her books, and now has art, paintings again continuing the theme of space mythology fusion. Check out her website at http://www.tlsmithbooks.com/
Also from that original group, we have DuAnn Black, who was her husband Alan’s editor. Alan left us two years ago but DuAnn continues to offer his novels and had the writing bug bite her as well, creating her own works of fiction. Between Alan and DuAnn, they offer general fiction, science fiction, and fantasy. Read more at http://alanblackauthor.com/
Next of our returning champions from that first year is Dr. Bruce C. Davis. Dr. Bruce writes science fiction and brings his wealth of trauma room experience to his nonfiction, writing about his experiences in the medical field. He works with small press Brick Cave Media. His work and information can be found at http://www.thatwhichishuman.com/.
Our last from four years ago is Hal C F Astell, writing nonfiction, his work relating to film and pulp culture. Hal watches the bad movies so you don’t and then he writes about it. Look him up at http://www.apocalypselaterempire.com/
