Joshua (JoshuaCaleb) | 12 comments Warped & Wired: The Wryter Chronicles: book 1
[image error]
Magic and Technology don't mix. At least until now. Portia Greyleesah, a member of an ancient and magical race of beings called Wryters, and Mitchellina Cruise, a normal human island girl living in the pacific, are each content with their respective lives. But when each discovers the dark secrets of their true parentage, they both reluctantly leave their very different lives in search of the truth. They are forced to join together, much to their dismay, in order to uncover the secrets and truths, eventually working together to bring down the dark villain that threatens the lives of the entire world. www.TheWryterChronicles.com

Michael (michaeljsullivan) | 63 comments FREE SHORT STORY: The Viscount and the Witch
This is a prequel to my Riyria Revelations Series but is standalone so you don't need to have read the other books. I'm releasing this for free in celebration of the release of Theft of Swords on November 23 by Orbit books. You can Download it here .

Eleven years before they were framed for the murder of a king, before even assuming the title of Riyria, Royce Melborn and Hadrian Blackwater were practically strangers. Unlikely associates, this cynical thief and idealist swordsman, were just learning how to work together as a team. In this standalone first installment of The Riyria Chronicles, Royce is determined to teach his naive partner a lesson about good deeds. Join Royce and Hadrian in this short story (5,400 words) about one of their earliest adventures.

If you get a chance to read it (it's short just 5,400 workds), please let me know if you read it what you think.

George III (glc3) | 19 comments The US Army doesn't run from any enemy, living or dead:

In 2053 the dead walked. These are the stories of some of those men and women that fought back. These are the stories of some trying to find a “cure”. These are the stories of those that are just trying to survive the nightmare of the walking dead. These are the stories of those that caused The Dead War.

Will Macmillan Jones (willmacmillanjones) | 14 comments The Mystic Accountants

Join the quest for the magical toilet. laugh at the Mad Monks trying to take over the Worlod, starting with Wales (proof positive of insanity). Fall off your chair laughing, and make the author's fantasy come real.

Oh, did I forget to mention that this is a serious High Fantasy?

Frank Hofer Engineering with Magic

When you have a couple of engineers decide to write a fantasy, you get Duck Blood Soup. Don't let the title put you off - after reading the book you'll realize that it makes a lot of sense.

Duck Blood Soup is a "muskets and magic" fantasy about a world where the magic is combined with science to boost a nation's industrial revolution. Duck Blood Soup introduces new species and has a well thought-out magic system.
