Today, Alex Penland is releasing their second book, The Letter Mage: Second Quatro. This series is a collection of short and long stories following the 14-year-old Aleph as he infiltrates the departments of the Lunar University, encountering love, espionage, and academia.
I read the First Quatro after a reading at ICON. The episodic nature of the series fits well with this stories as a light pick-me-up. I also enjoyed the blending of science and magic, not to mention the linguistic themes that run through the story.
The first book can also be found on Amazon.
