As Boston College alumnus AustonHabershaw likes to tell it, when you are born on the same day that a NASA space station falls to Earth, you are destined to be supervillain or science fiction/fantasy writer. Habershaw is the latter and the author of two new novels, The Iron Ring and Iron and Blood (Harper Voyager/Harper Collins, 2015). Parts One and Two of the Saga of the Redeemed, the books follow the story of Tyvian Reldamar, a criminal mastermind set on revenge. Habershaw won a Writers of the Future award based on an international short story competition for new science fiction and fantasy authors. His piece, “A Revolutionary’s Guide to Practical Conjuration,”‘ was published in the anthology Writers of the Future, Vol. 31. His work has also appeared in Analog, The Sword and Laser Anthology and Stupefying Stories.
