The Senior Editor's usual rants about whatever…

Serialised stories and Long Fiction

The Laws of Magic
Joe Vadalma
When Detective Martin Kopinski got the missing person case, he thought he'd seen it all in his twenty years on the force. But dealing with the occult was beyond even his tough, cynical expertise, when murder, witchcraft, demonology, the Cthulhu and other dimensions are involved.

The Nameless Evil Part One (of Two)
Mizu Ash
If you like fantasy, read this story. If you don't like fantasy, read this story.

Nightwatch: Fly By Wire
Part Two (of Two)

Dan L. Hollifield
What was concealed
Shall stand revealed
In all its radiant glory.
Those secrets held
Shall be unveiled
And there hangs this story…

A new shared universe series: Nightwatch, under the direction of Jeff Williams.

Pixies' Lament
G. C. Dillon
Once the forest dwellers had lived in harmony with Men. But that time had long since passed, and the armies of Man were pushing the faerie folk to the edge of war.

Iain Darby
Josiah had lost everything. Joan was gone, and with her death, the joy had drained from Josiah's life. But when he found the forgotten shrine, he found much more.

The Yellow Leaf
Joel Doonan
What is a single dead leaf worth? To the people around the tree from which it falls, it is nothing — one pretty thing among thousands. But let it travel far enough, and it can become precious.

James Brian King
Dr. Benjamin Ellsworth knew that time travel was risky. A tiny misstep in the past could change everything. A trip into the future, on the other hand…
