Because I’m now writing more than one series set in this amazingly huge universe, I’ve gone ahead and given the most of the novels and stories already written a series name of their own – The Faery Chronicles. “All the Words in All the Worlds,” my offering in the current issue of The Uncollected Anthology, is a Faery Chronicles story. It marks the appearance of a new character, Chris Garcia, whose new magical power allows him to find the lost.
When Chris Garcia reads the magical morning Metro section of the newspaper, one and only one article stands out: a girl named Alice must find something precious she’s lost before nightfall or go to Hell.
Chris figures his newfound magical skill of finding the lost will save her. Instead, he walks straight into a trap. If he fails to find a way out before the sun sets, he dooms Alice—and himself—forever.
“All the Words in All the Worlds” is on sale at these fine places.
I’ve written two other stories in which Chris appears, “When Gods Hunger” and “Lightning in a Bottle.” Both of these were written during the Oregon Writers Network Fantasy Workshop this past April. I’ll be releasing these in the coming days for sale, and also making them available to read for free here on my website. Keep an eye out for them.
I hope you enjoy the new issue of The Uncollected Anthology. So many great authors. So many awesome stories!
