About the Author

A.M. Tuomala lives in western New York, somewhere between Niagara Gorge and the Eternal Flame. In addition to hiking those sublime landscapes, Tuomala enjoys researching eighteenth-century science, collecting rocks, and building new worlds.


Gripping, vivid, and magical, this fantasy adventure from Tuomala (Drakon) has a power to enchant its readers... // This impressive fantasy packs the punch of a much longer epic. - Publishers Weekly, starred review

...Magic, stories, and cartography mix with romance, adventure, and philosophy. A stellar start to a new fantasy series, this book is highly recommended for all fantasy collections. - Lynnanne Pierson, Booklist, starred review

I loved the intricate world-building and the unique magics, but most of all I loved the characters, facing the end of their world with compassion and the determination to-somehow!-find a way forward. - Melissa Scott, legendary pioneering SFF author and winner of multiple genre awards

A.M. Tuomala's picaresque Map and Territory follows the footsteps of the best traditions of secondary world fantasy travel narratives like that of Jack Vance, C.J. Cherryh, and K V Johansen. - Paul Weimer, SFF book reviewer and Hugo finalist

With worldbuilding reminiscent of LeGuin, Tuomala has constructed a rich and exciting story of survival and friendship. Likeable characters and interesting twists elevate The Map and the Territory into an intriguing and memorable adventure. - Jo Graham, author of the acclaimed Numinous World historical fantasies and Calpurnian Wars space operas
