Praise from Jay Lake
“Steve Bein's DAUGHTER OF THE SWORD really captured my imagination. The interweaving of historical Japanese adventure and modern police procedural, Tokyo-style, caught me from two unexpected directions. A tight read, lots of great tension, and epic stakes.”
I have a hard time believing that Jay and I started our careers at more or less the same time--in the same room, really. He and I were twinned at the Writers of the Future conference in 2003. Jay has gone on to publish 10 novels and over 300 short stories since then--as meteoric a rise as anyone in this biz can ever hope to see. Visit Jay’s site here and see for yourself.
