A Kevin Andrew Murphy novel (or two) would be fine!


Pathfinder Tales


3 people marked this as a favorite.

So, I really dug Kevin A Murphy's alchemist-in-Galt stories. Like, a ton.
I think I said as much in the comments section back in the day- but in case I didn't- let me repeat: I like them a ton.

Smart, packed full of erudition, beautiful prose, and characters that I actually got sad about. But the stories also had some great 'pulp' action, deft twists and turns.

So- I would like at least one whole Pathfinder novel by him, please.
I'm not picky- it doesn't have to feature the alchemist. Entirely new characters in a relatively unknown Golarion country would be fine by me...

I also liked all of the clever poems Mr. Murphy did for y'all, back in the day!

Have we had a novel with a bard main character yet?

And ORACLES have been known to speak in verse, if I'm not mistaken...
and I do so love the oracle class...

I second this, but I'd like to mention that I would be very happy with a novel starring Norret.

I definitely would like this. His alchemist stories are the things that made me buy a bunch more of the Pathfinder Novels.

I concur.


I bet a lot of other people would agree. So the smart play here is to have a novel with Norret in it.

I have also said it before, and I will say it again. I would love to read a Pathfinder Tales novel penned by Kevin Andrew Murphy. Just as an FYI, he has written the fiction that will be in the Reign of Winter AP, so you'll get another KAM story if you subscribe! Or you could just pick up the individual issues...

I just checked my watch, and it said it was fine time for a KAM novel. Does that sound right to anyone else?

That sounds exactly right.


It's always a fine time for a Kevin Andrew Murphy novel.

In fact, the goodness of a KAM novel is infinitely wide. And the frequency decomposition of a function with infinite time width is a singular frequency, so pure and sweet. One could say it's a universal hum, a celestial music to accompany a the philospher's quest.

Also, he has wicked awesome prose.

This sounds - enticing?
Though does he prefer a shorter form? A book of short stories would be appealing as well.
I like poetry.

My shelves have holes
These tomes lean, languid spines,
The acid of old books.

You all asked, I will deliver! (sort of)

You can either go here and start looking around. Or you could follow this direct link to Kevin Andrew Murphy's novel, Penny Dreadful. Enjoy! It's free and legal*!

legal*:
I'm assuming that it is legal as it is a link directly off of Kevin Andrew Murphy's own website. If it is not a legal copy of the story, then I have been led horribly wrong by the author and, hey, why are there men here in blue coats with handcuffs? Leave me alone you cads! Hey, what's that for? Ow! Ow! Stop it!

KAM also did a novella for the Legend of the Lich Queen Kickstarter.

Of me.

I have an MFA in Poetry. I sometimes jot down a haiku.
Thanks.

Went looking for novel. Found this. Wow! There you go...


Just finished Penny Dreadful. Highly amusing, even if one isn't super familiar with the World of Darkness setting. Some adult themes, but a pretty light tone overall. And a great wealth of occult lore and references.

I think I prefer the sense of desperation and tension in the Secret of the Rose and glove slightly more, but definitely worth a read.

Sweeeeet!

After reading "The Bonedust Dolls", as well as the "Secret of the Rose and Glove", I am definitely a convert. Commission a Pathfinder Tales book already! <bangs on the table>
