Brian Jaybush cut his teeth reading science fiction, starting with Asimov's I, Robot at age 10 and progressing insatiably from there. He has been writing all his life, starting as a journalist in junior high school and continuing with legal and technical writing later in life (BA History, 1975; Juris Doctor, 1978). Retirement from 30 years in the telecommunications industry has allowed him to concentrate on fiction writing full time, in partnership with his son, Timothy.
Timothy Jaybush also began reading and writing science fiction at an early age, leading to an uncanny ability to construct unusual and entertaining story lines. In addition to working full-time, Tim graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in Philosophy.

Reviews of The Spring of Storms: The Fourth Season of Elsewhen by B. T. Jaybush

Stormswift reviewed on Dec. 25, 2019

The 4th book of this epic fantasy adventure series.

The decimation of the bulk of the Wizard population resulted in more that just the lack of magical assistance in the daily tasks of the Plain folk. Wizards had also helped to control the weather. Now storms rage unabated (why did Amedia not stop these!) and will destroy the remaining people.
To prevent this further catastrophe, young Astra Fairweather must work with the mass murderer Blight to protect the cities from the storms.

I did wonder though - while Blight was mostly sane and inclined to help, why did Astra not ask him to fully heal a young apprentice who suffered daily?

The novel ends with the Amedian's sentience's extraordinary request of Astra - which I guess is going to result in "the year that never was". Astra's choice regarding her friends (sans their knowledge or consent) is morally grey - surprising for a character whose maturity thus far has always belied her youth.

An entertaining read
