How to Stop an Overextended Metaphor In One Easy Step

You announce that March 1st will see the publication of one of your next stories.

Abandoned Towers Issue 2 will 'hit the stands' that day and it includes That First Roman Story called Sunset at the End of Empire. I received the .pdf this morning and I was pleasantly surprised by two things. First, the publisher put in an illustration to go with it, which is always fun. And Second, Bruce Durham also has a Roman Empire centered story in it. Today is a good day, and not only because I'm about to drive up to the North Shore of Oahu.

(Of course, if Return of the Sword is any indicator, Bruce's story will be better than mine.)

Bite your tongue! I thought both 'Sunset at the End of Empire' and 'The Battle of Raven Kill' from 'Return of the Sword' were excellent. :)

You're kind, thank you. 'Valley of Bones' is one of my favorites from RotS. The dead-on accurate portrayal of soldiers at war is outstanding. That and undead elephants.
