The Game is afoot

November 29, 2017

My story, "A Game of Balances" just came out in Phantaxis: Science Fiction & Fantasy Magazine, Issue 7. It's the first story I've sold in a shared science fantasy universe I created called Aaerilia.

Aaerilia is part of an enormous bridge that had been destroyed centuries earlier, its inhabitants cut off from the greater part of their world. Remnants of several cultures try to coexist, all while navigating the unique limitations of their environment, and learning the aspects of two opposing magic systems.

This story follows a wager between a master assassin and his apprentice as they attempt one last, big quest.
