About Dusk Peterson

I write award-winning historical speculative fiction: history-inspired mythic fantasy, alternate history, and retrofuture science fiction. Amidst dangerous events, love often occurs in the stories: family affection, friendship, platonic life-companionships, and romance.

You can see links to my latest releases and the rest of my fiction at duskpeterson.com.

What I post at Patreon

  • Previews of my upcoming web fiction.
  • My early writings.
  • Links to my blog entries at Dreamwidth: book reviews and entries about my daily life.

Current projects

I'm currently serializing my alternate history novel Forge and am working on these upcoming stories.

Comments on my fiction

About your donations

I'm a full-time writer. Publishers pay me for my nonfiction, but in order to carve out time to write and release fiction, I depend on donations. This Patreon account is for folks who would like to make a monthly donation to support me in that mission.

If you become my patron, Patreon will suggest a monthly donation amount, but please pledge whatever your circumstances allow.

This is a community

Some of you already know each other. I hope that all of you will get to know each other through my community board and through comments to my posts. Talk to each other here! Discuss the stories! Link to your fanworks of my stories!

If, however, you are an utter introvert (like me), then you are also entirely welcome here. Have fun reading quietly.
