Roadmap To Amelia
The Beast and the Forgotten Tribesman (first in series)
A brief greetings and salutations, readers. I’m Joshua T. Calkins-Treworgy, and I’d like to start by thanking you for making the purchase of this work from Untreed Reads. Let’s dive into a quick introduction to this first work and to the series as a whole, shall we?
‘The Beast and the Forgotten Tribesman’ started off, for me, as a sort of challenge I made to myself to try and write up a quick ‘creature feature’ sort of tale. I remember wanting the pace of the story to be tight and rushed, with brief moments wherein the protagonist, a homeless vagabond living on the streets of Amelia City, would have just enough time to formulate a singular line of thought or momentary planning and nothing more. I wanted to offer an immediate sense of danger and urgency, and place the main protagonist in circumstances which would from the word ‘go’ leave most normal people a shuddering pile of nerves.
