Katil Var was a long time coming. I preordered it back in early 2019 and waited patiently through editing woes, issues with printers, and then COVID-related fun stuff, but it’s finally here! And unusually for me, I’m reviewing it in a timely manner, largely to get some press out for the book. tl;dr: Katil Var […]
