Language in fiction/ fictional languages

Conlangers all,

Happy to announce that the novel, The Maze Game, from which the Glide
language project emerged is now actually out there on in
tangible, bed-and-bathtub-compliant print version.

The language is integral to the plot, and is in some sense a character in
the book, as well as having shared some authorship (use of the Glide oracle
directed points in the plot).

I put up a new intro page on the Glide website with the book information,
and a quick summary of the relationship to the language.  I was able to
include many illustrations of Glide glyphs in the book, a perk of publishing
with a small, independent publisher, Deep Listening.

It's been a long time coming...

End of shameless self-promotion....

But truly, being a quiet member of this list, on and off for 4 plus years,
has provided a sense of community in this delicious obsession  of making
language that simply could not have been found anywhere else, and I thank
you all.

All the best,

Diana Slattery
