Read Now: Stone Eater

Delighted to see that my story ‘Stone Eater’ is now available to read at Abyss and Apex, the online magazine of speculative fiction. This fantasy story was one of the first I finished writing after retiring from BioWare.

Best of all the story is free to read at the Abyss and Apex website for a few months, after which it will be archived (you need to be a subscriber to read the archives). Please let me know what you think of it! And if you enjoy it tweets and shares will be very much appreciated.

This is my second story to see print this year. The first, ‘Touch the Dead’ is in the current issue of On Spec Magazine. As well, many of my previously published stories are available from Amazon, Smashwords, iTunes, Kobo, and for the Nook.

    My favorite was the following descriptive text….

    “orphaned bones tumbling to the ground”

    I wish I was still DM’ing.  A beautiful, descriptive moment in time.
