Ricky German is an aspiring writer and professional desk jockey. When not doing either he is a keen practitioner of aikido, of which he is a black belt, and spends time hiking the moors and woodlands, exploring the paths less travelled. He is also torturing his neighbours with an ill-conceived attempt to learn the violin. Ever the escapist, he is currently evading real life to work on Aedan and Linet’s world in the form of several short stories.
The Winners of the 2016 Crimson Cloak Fantasy short story writing competition, along with a selection of the best runners-up, are presented here in a compilation volume entitled THE RIDER.
Writers were asked to write a story of 1500-3000 words based around a stock picture showing a hooded rider in a fantasy landscape. Buy this book to read the cream of the crop.
