Stories

For whatever reason, probably because I have plenty to do, I've decided to add something to my list. I have several stories that I've written or co-written, and I actually really like them. It has hit me that I'd like to find out what happens in these stories. So my new goal is to finish them - if only to find out what happens next. Some of them will be a bit tricky - it has been so long since I've written them, that I don't fully grasp the cosmology anymore. I will have to try to remember, or in some cases, make it up again.

In some ways, it seems like it would probably be good to write new stories, but then I think, good for who? They are like books that I have read and never finished. If new stories crop up while I work on them, so be it, but if not - that's fine too.

Amusingly, the story I'm most interested in finishing currently, is the one I really didn't have a whole outline for. I was writing it with Kristyn, and we hadn't figured out the ending. We'd barely filled out the middle. That one seems most like the story I can't wait to find out. So, hoping to work on Magic Touch and see where it goes.

Hopefully it will go somewhere completely new for me - to completion.

  2. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    A while ago I put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's mostly short stories, with some obvious gamer-interest material. For example I have a story inspired by OD&D elves, as well as poems which retell Robert E Howard's King Kull story The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune and HP Lovecraft's Under the Pyramids.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog (either a normal book review, or a review of its suitability as gaming inspiration).

    If so, please email me: news@apolitical.info. Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from Smashwords:

    I'll also link to your review from my blog.

    Yours,
    James.
