Welcome to the online home of fantasy author Stuart A. Etter, where you can follow his progress on current projects, get a peek at what's coming, and explore the worlds and characters in his novels.

Echoes of Truth is the first volume in the epic fantasy series Cycle of Truth, Memory, and Myth. I'm currently working on the final draft. The prologue is available now in the Samples area. I hope you enjoy the ominous beginning to this exciting tale of mystery and intrigue.

My next story is planned out and ready to go. A historical-fantasy adventure set in Renaissance Italy, The Condotierre will be the first in a series of stand-alone stories set in the turbulent 15th century where ancient knowledge is being rediscovered amid the treacherous political environment that inspired Machiavelli's The Prince. What will the new knowledge bring and how will it shift the delicate balance between the Italian city states?

Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon to see how the future is developing.
