Six-Shooters & Sorcery
My novella "Fangs of the Dragon" has been accepted into the forthcoming Monsters & Mormons anthology. I'm pretty stoked for that, its one of the tales I have had the most fun writing ever.
I would classify it as a weird western or even a sword and sorcery tale taking place in 1869, 'six-shooters and sorcery'? Part of the fun was the historical research I did, the idea that based off what we 'don't know' and what might have happened ~ and all of this could still fit together. I only outright made up one major character-the rest are real.
Fantastical as many things within the story may sound-the bulk of them did happen-I came away from the experience with the personal feeling that it is at least 66% true and it was exciting to help reveal those true macabre events in such an entertaining fashion. I believe we are looking at an October 1st release date.
In addition to this Porter novella, I have several other yarns starring Port coming soon. 2011 could be a great year for the long-haired gunslinger.
And just in case I don't feel like posting again-Merry Christmas
