Since it first appeared in 2000, Prelude to a Change of Mind, the origin story of the Habdvarsha universe, has gone in and out of print with three different publishers. Despite significant revision to the successive releases, author Robert Stikmanz remained dissatisfied with the still evolving text.
“Reworked from start to finish” best describes this new version from Stikmantica. For Prelude to a Change of Mind, the Author’s Edition, a novel of Habdvarsha, Stikmanz stripped the narrative to its familiar outline and rebuilt it, adding dimension to characters and setting, and tightening prose. The tale of Meg Christmas and her intersection with alternate worlds, mysterious forces and magical beings now takes definitive shape in a lively, engaging, completely fresh account.
Prelude to a Change of Mind, the Author’s Edition relaunches the entire cycle of fiction by Robert Stikmanz. The retitled series steps forward with this first book of Habdvarsha.
