The Twelve

Valtierra, a city-state, is governed by archetypes. Every two years they choose twelve men and women to wear the masks and to become the Wise Old Man, the Fool, the Mother, the Harlot, the Warrior, and the rest of the council. But now Valtierra faces hunger, decay, and an enemy on their border. When the need for leadership is greatest, one mask is worn by a foreigner and one mask hides a traitor.

About James K Burk

James K. Burk is to writing what a left-handed swordsman is to fencing; he approaches from different angles, seeing different openings. It's this quality that makes his chapbooks, STRANGE TWISTS OF FATE and ILLUSIONS OF SANITY so aptly named.

His first fantasy novel, HIGH RAGE, is presently out of print and a collector's item. His second novel, HOME IS THE HUNTER, is about a faceless assassin who sometimes wonders if he'd also lost his soul. And, for fun, he's written stories for the Bubbas of the Apocalypse anthologies. "The Trailer Park Vampire Meets the Bubba Yumbie" was included in THE BEST OF THE BUBBAS.
