About the Author

Jim C. Hines has been a paid juggler, earned a black belt in two different martial arts, performed yo-yo tricks at the top of the Eiffel Tower, and lived with a brain-damaged squirrel. (Only three of those are true.) One of his earliest stories earned first place in the Writers of the Future contest. He's published more than forty short stories as well as numerous fantasy novels, including the humorous Jig the Dragonslayer trilogy, the Princess series, which re-imagines traditional fairy-tale princesses as butt-kicking action heroines, and the Magic Ex Libris series, about a centuries-old secret society dedicated to the use and control of book magic. In 2012, he won the Hugo for Best Fan Writer. Jim lives in Michigan with his wife, two children, and an unstable number of pets. He can be found online at www.jimchines.com.

Reviews

"Hines has just scratched the surface of what he can do. And I can't wait to see what comes next." --Tor.com (for Codex Born)
"[Hines] writes joyously for the delight of his specific market. "Codex Born" is what would happen if a group of fantasy fans were to hole up in a room trying to develop a system of magic, saying, 'But what if THIS happened?'" --RT Book Reviews (for Codex Born)
"Nonstop action and laughter power Hines's riveting second journey into the 'peculiar life' of Isaac Vainio.... Like a good pinball game, Isaac's adventures are frantic, fascinating, and more than a little noisy. Hines supplies everything a reader needs--werewolves, ghosts, robot insects, a fire spider that eats candy, and homages to classic SF--for a very good time." --Publishers Weekly (for Codex Born)
"I picked up the book meaning to read a few pages. My first thought was, 'This is a cool concept.' The second thing I thought was, 'This is really, really clever.' The third thing I thought was, 'I should have gone to sleep three hours ago.'" --Patrick Rothfuss (for series)
"Jim Hines is an engaging writer who is also greatly entertaining, and I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys superior worldbuilding." --Charlaine Harris (for series)

Hines created a system where that magic becomes real, usable, and very definitely not always safe. This is a book for everyone who has ever wanted to pull Excalibur from the page. Tanya Huff, bestselling author

"Hines supplies everything a reader needs werewolves, ghosts, robot insects, a fire spider that eats candy, and homages to classic SF for a very good time." "Publishers Weekly"

Isaac s story feels extremely personal and intimate, even throughout the world-changing events around him. SF Signal
"Hines has just scratched the surface of what he can do. And I can't wait to see what comes next." Tor.com
Equal parts quirky humor and serious emotional dissection.... Hines is one hell of an author. Bookworm Blues
Continues to break tropes and proves that fantasy can be so much more.... Right at the top of my list of favorites along with JK Rowling s Harry Potter, Patrick Rothfuss Kingkiller Chronicle, Garth Nix s Abhorsen, and Kim Harrison s Hollows. Bibliophilic Witch
Wonderful characterizations. From a fire spider to Gutenberg himself, [Hines] makes all his characters come alive on the page. Errand Dreams
