Django Wexler Interview – The Infernal Battalion 

Back in 2013, Fantasy-Faction interviewed Django Wexler as the first book in his Shadow Campaigns series, The Thousand Names, was about to come out.

Militaries and Fantasy or How to Build an Army

Militaries and Fantasy or How to Build an Army 

Author’s Note: I did my best to refrain from using military and army interchangeably in this article. To clarify a bit, by army I mean one specific body of fighters. By military I mean a country or warlord’s fighting force as a whole. Military history is a bear. Humans have been fighting each other longer […]

In book two, […]
