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 […]
