Peephole In My Skull

Book Club Shoutout!

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! We were recently contacted by Laura representing a group of stellar fans from the bookclub Zwischen den Seiten (between the sides). These Fantasy-lovers recently picked up the German edition of The Warded Man and decided to let us know how much they’re enjoying it!

“My book club is a very small club but we all enjoy the fantasy genre. So far everyone loves your books. I’m very glad to have found them…”

Laura was also nice enough to send us a compilation of some of the members. Check out these awesome people!


Thank you so much to everyone who sent in pictures (and to everyone who didn’t). You’re all amazing and we’re so happy you reached out us!

D&D With Ed Greenwood: Recap

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! Last Saturday Peat played an absolutely incredible game of Dungeons and Dragons with authors Chris Jackson, Erik Scott de Bie, John Helfers, Myke Cole, and living legend Ed Greenwood.


Peat played the rational and good-natured Delthrar Dawnstorm. This Forgotten Realms campaign was written specially by Ed Greenwood. A few highlights include:


-Spooky smoke

-A lonely skeleton

-Peat getting hit on

-Duck-faced voices

-Peat getting hit on again

-A giant tentacle-worm

-And much more!

You can watch the whole adventure below!

We’d like to give an enormous shout-out to Peat’s fellow players as well as to Arvan Eleron for hosting. You can check out more of Arvan on his Youtube channel or on Twitch.

We also want to thank Ed Greenwood for being the best Dungeon Master anyone could hope for. The campaign was amazing and it was such a pleasure to be a part of it. Thank you.

World Fantasy Convention: Recap!

Posted by Karen

Hey everyone! A few weeks ago, Peat was at World Fantasy Convention 2015. It was an amazing time. Here are some of the highlights:

World Fantasy Convention started off on a high note (or should I say, high tote?) as the con was kind enough to gift Peat with this awesome tote bag.


Peat spent some quality time with awesome people like Yanni Kuznia. Peeling bookplates is harder than you’d think!


Scott Lynch stopped by to say a refined hello..


… and Peat popped over to the Manners & Mutiny launch event with one of my personal favorite authors, the lovely Gail Carriger!


After a long day of convention time, what better way to unwind than with the best. Brunch. Ever.


Thanks to everyone who came out and to World Fantasy Convention for hosting. It was completely awesome!
