The Burning Servant - A New Story
August 17, 2010 short stories
I've mentioned Mike Stackpole's Chain Story Project before. What I haven't mentioned is that my story "The Burning Servant" is now the 14th story in the project.
The Burning Servant is one of the stories in The Chain Story. This series of stand-alone tales all begin at the Wanderer's Club, a gathering place where tales of fantastic adventure are traded.
Often, these stories are told by robust persons of adventure - larger than life champions from the highest ranks of society. This story, of darkness, death, and compromise, suggests that the most accurate accounts of history have little to do with the official story.
You can read The Burning Servant for free (donations requested), or if you would prefer to read the story in ePub, Mobi, or PDF formats, they're all available for less than a buck.
