D.B. Jackson, the pen name of an established, award-winning author, brings a fresh voice to genre fiction. Specializing in historical fantasy, D.B. is the author of the Thieftaker Chronicles, published by Tor Books. The first book in this new series, Thieftaker, was released earlier this year. It was well received critically, went into a second printing in about six weeks, and has been made into an audio book by Audible.com. It is an urban fantasy set in pre-Revolutionary Boston. The second book in the series, Thieves' Quarry, will be published in July 2013. And two more Thieftaker books are now in the works. City of Shades will be released in 2014 and Dead Man's Reach should come out the following year.
D.B. is also the author of "The Tavern Fire," a short story that appears in After Hours: Tales from the Ur-Bar, edited by Joshua Palmatier and Patricia Bray. After Hours is published by DAW and includes fifteen tales of fantasy, history, and intrigue. And now you can read "The Tavern Fire" here, on this site! While you're at it, you can also read a new Thieftaker short story, "The Witch of Dedham," which is only available on this site, or you can listen to a reading of the story by D.B.
D.B. has written two other Thieftaker stories, as well. "A Spell of Vengeance" is the feature story for the week of June 13, 2012 on Tor.com, and "A Memory of Freedom" was the feature story in the March 2012 issue of Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show.
