Started reading SF and Fantasy in the 1950's (yes I am that old), Galaxy and Astounding magazines mainly. Have been a fan ever since. Horror as well - especially Lovecraft and Derleth. All time favourite author is the great Jack Vance, but recently have found Neal Asher - fantastic! I was fascinated by chemistry from an early age and managed a B.Sc and Ph.D.and hence a lomg time interest in alchemy.
Have fooled around with writing short stories for a long time, but couldn't be bothered to submit them. Found Smashwords and decided to take the plunge. It's rewarding to see that people are downloading my stories and adding them to their libraries. Hope that they find them enjoyable.
I use to play GuildWars a lot - hence the picture - that's my character, a necromancer of course!

The tribe had offended the gods. Skarll Hrothgar brother & his uncle Witgard the Lame watched as Hrothgar was being hung. The ceremony began.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A very well written medieval type short story (book). It was very easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Quite a few twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios & a great host of characters. This could make a great movie or TV series. No doubt in my mind a very easy rating of 5 stars for this book.
Thank you for the free short story (book)
