And I get a mention in both!
...And it’s a really good anthology. It’s clear that Harbowy and Greenwood carefully considered their theme and the authors and stories that are its backbone. Every story is well-plotted and contains characters that leap off the page. Characters that feel, that make you feel along with them. When I got the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book, I was excited by the subject matter I’d heard so much about at Ad Astra. I popped it into my Kobo right away, and was glued.
And mentions my story here:
My Top 5:
- An Evil Not Forgotten by Erik Buchanan
- Brine Magic by Tony Pi
- The Legend of Gluck by Marie Bilodeau
- Ashes of the Bonfire Queen by Rosemary Jones
- Dark Helm Returns by Ed Greenwood
I love small presses. Really, I do. They are so much more likely to put out interesting anthologies, such as When The Hero Comes Home...
And says this about my story:
Let me highlight some of the gems inside, in order of appearance. Erik Buchanan's What Evil Remains gives us a picture of a veteran of a wizard's defeat dealing with post-traumatic stress, a good man who served his community and bears the mental scars to prove it. Truly heart-wrenching.
