Marco announces 'The Skylords' series

John Marco has announced today that he has struck a deal with DAW Books to publish his new fantasy series The Skylords, of which the first book will be called Starfinder.

The series will allegedly be aimed at a younger audience than his previous fantasy series and will include aviation and flying machines.

This is pretty cool news, not to mention completely unexpected. From the sounds of it, The Skylords will be a fantasy that includes a different level of technology than the usual medieval fantasy setting. This is of course is in line with his Tyrants and Kings series which I've mentioned previously, where he blended magic and technology.

All in all pretty exciting for Marco fans. Check out John's original post here:

And keep your eyes peeled for a John Marco interview which hopefully will be appearing soon...
