Civilization Battle Royale: The Novel, Chapter 8 – Flames on the North Slope

It be the eighth chapter of our 6000 year epic- This time we turn our gaze to the northern alps, where the Romans are holding out. As always, Cadellin.net has epub, mobi and PDF releases of the novel, as well as a PDF of just the most recent chapter. You can view that over here on the page for the project.

Secondly, I have another titbit I thought I’d share with you folks. Last week I did a flash fiction writing thing with my partner Leah, and made a stories with very short wordcount. Here is my personal favourite from that session- fifty words with the topic of “replacement”.

The man wore a false smile, nodding as the woman spoke. She couldn’t see the truth. Behind the mask lay something that was not human; that had never been human. He laughed at her joke, but the mirth did not reach his eyes. For in truth, he had no eyes.

I think I’ve been reading a little too much SCP recently. Anyhow, till next time!

The Last Echo: New short story is now on shelves

15094479_1836745846537311_3986370375412435928_nIts true- after almost two years of random tinkering, The Last Echo is finally out and available to all. I actually wrote the original version back in 2014, and randomly tinkered with it for a further year and a half. The story was selected for the second issue of Ohio-based sci fi magazine JAMM (Just a Minor Malfunction), and is now available on Amazon worldwide.

Subject Echo awakes in a ruined city, long abandoned, with no memory of how she got there. Follow her in her search for the truth, and uncover what happened to the forgotten civilization…

The story received an editing spree from the highly skilled Michael S. Alter, and it promises to be quite the cracker.

The Amazon links for international readers should be going up any day now, so I’ll post here with more information when those are available. Till then, stay tuned!
