One of the reasons for the success of the first Sci-Fi from the Rock collection in April 2010 (and the Engen Anthology program as a whole) was the skillful and powerful prose of Melanie Collins, who proved to us that there were amazing authors out there without a venue that needed a place to shine and reach their fandom.
One of the greatest heartbreaks of the last six years for Engen Books has been seeing that title, and specifically that story, fall from print. In April 2016 that error is being rectified when Melanie Collins’s fantasy masterpiece Woven by the Thief returns to the printed page as a part of our 10th Anniversary Collection.
We thank Melanie for the privilege of working with her again.
The incredibly funny and talented Melanie Collins seems to excel in all the diverse things she does. Melanie is an avid lover of science fiction, fantasy, cosplay, and gaming; and in 2005, co-founded Sci-Fi on the Rock.
In 2010, this down-to-Earth pet groomer added author to her list of credits when “Woven by the Thief” appeared to critical acclaim in the original Sci-Fi from the Rock anthology.
Since then, Melanie has continued trailblazing along the path of cool girl geekdom, kicking butt with 8 Limb Muay Thai in St. John’s, and doing some serious good for charity with local non-profit Sandbox Gaming.
We have one more announcement to make guys…
