About this author

Mark Stone splits his time between the United States and Spain with his greatest inspiration, his wife. Having written award-winning Flash Fiction, he is now a novelist writing tales mostly of Fantasy and Sword & Sorcery. He will sometimes get a wild hair and venture into other areas—namely, Weird Western and Historical Fiction. Look for the latter in the near future. Most of his stories are based in Calasade, a fantasy world heavily influenced by Ancient Rome.

As of this posting, his published titles (novels unless indicated otherwise) include:

Calasade: Resurrection (Flash Fiction)
Gunslinger Greed (Weird Western)
Calasade: Wayward (Graphic Novel)
Calasade: Blood Isle

The zing usually happens at around 3:00 AM when I'm sleeping. I'll wake like I was just hit by lightning with the words itching to be written.(less)

Amusing and revolting. Could anything else be expected from the man who wrote Dracula?

“If you don't take your work seriously enough for proper editing, why should anyone take your book seriously enough to buy?”

“Once there were gatekeepers to publishing who missed quite a few great books. Then came the day when there were no gatekeepers. Now's the day when we need a middle ground to protect the readers. That day is coming in the way of Reader/Author, a place where readers and authors are more than just buyers and sellers.”
