Imager portfolio over?

Postby oponn » Thu Jan 10, 2019 6:34 pm

Just read on Amazon in the description that this will be the final book. Any confirmation on this? I sincerely hope this isn't the case but all good things come to an end at some point.
Any information would be appreciated thanks.!

Endgames is indeed the final book in The Imager Portfolio. It completes the story cycle I had in mind from the beginning. I've very much enjoyed writing it, but it was never intended to be an "open-ended world history" the way the Saga of Recluce is.

Oh, rats!
One of my earliest questions on this forum was asking if there was a possibility of a continuation of Rhenn's story arc (Link here: http://ibdof.com/viewtopic.php?f=52&t=121763&p=1895171#p1895171).
You had indicated that you had considered it, among a few other possibilities. Should I assume that the Rhenn sequel is no longer a consideration?
Considering the principles involved, what are the odds that Murphy's Law is named after the wrong guy?

That's a fair assumption. After a great deal of consideration, I decided that any plausible continuation of Rhenn's story would be an anticlimax and that I didn't want to write an exciting and implausible continuation.

I can genuinely say that I'll miss the Imager Portfolio. It has been an excellent journey and I can't wait to see where you take us next. I suppose that'll be to Heaven. :)

The Spellsong Cycle is done as well. It's possible that I could write another book in the Corean Chronicles, if I get the right time/idea/??? ... but the probability isn't high at the moment.
