Hey everyone,

The 2nd edition of The Hall of the Wood, my dark/traditional fantasy novel about a King's Patroller who returns home to find things a little off, has been released.

Here's the cover and the blurb:

All is not right in the Simarron Woods.

The King's Patrol has vanished. Their Hall stands empty. Goblins prowl the fringes of the forest and folk whisper of a sitheri witch brewing evil from the darkest hollows.

Once a patroller of the Hall, Jerrick is duty-bound to investigate. He is joined by Kayra Weslin, knight errant, and her chronicler, Holly, who go to answer a plea for help from nearby Homewood. Along with Murik Alon Rin'kres, an eslar sorcerer who harbors a secret purpose all his own, the four attempt to unravel the mystery of the missing patrollers. They soon find tales of their disappearance frighteningly untrue.

Small Press & Self-Published / Tales of the Assassin Without a Name
« on: July 17, 2013, 01:31:39 AM »
Welcome to the Assassin Without a Name promotion thread on Fantasy Faction!

The Assassin Without a Name series is a growing collection of short stories and novellas featuring a witty assassin with a penchant for fine wine. While each story is a self-contained tale unto itself, as the story progresses, strange forces are on the move, and our assassin will find himself embroiled in a secret war where all is lost no matter who wins.

Sound intriguing?

If so, please take a look at the first two stories in the series: Fine Wine and Killing the Dead (links below). They're both usually free (check before purchasing) and widely available. If you like those, next in the series is Night of Zealotry and, the latest, The Goddard Affair.

I'll add new posts to this thread as each story makes its way out. Thanks!

Introductions / late introductions?

Hopefully I'm not introducing myself twice here but I'm pretty sure I never did it the first time, so here goes...

I'm Scott Marlowe. I've written a couple of books and I'm working on writing some more. I'm actually a software engineer by day (guy's gotta pay the bills), but I spend much of the rest of the time coming up with new story ideas. Or trying to, anyway.

I've been a fan of fantasy all my life with an early love for the works of Howard, Moorcock, Lovecraft, Duncan, Hobb, and probably some others I'm not remembering right now.

Hope to talk to some of you soon!


If you enjoy character-driven fantasy adventure books, I think you'll like The Five Elements. Here's the info:

Find out more about the novel as well as read a couple of excerpts here:


What Readers Are Saying

"I loved the story and it was the perfect combination of elemental magic and adventure." - Ritesh Kala, Ritesh Kala's Book Reviews

"The characters are varied (an eslar mercenary, sorcerers, dwarves, hell hounds, demons, etc), interesting, well-drawn, and the action is nearly non-stop." - Chase, Goodreads reviewer

"A story that doesn't deserved to be missed." - Anna-louise, Goodreads reviewer

"Wow - just wow. Scott blends magical realism, elemental powers, alchemy and mechanics into a fascinating story. The setting, characters, and action are superb." - Terra Harmony, author of The Akasha Series

"The Five Elements is an enveloping story that drags you in and doesn't let go. I enjoyed it immensely." - Timmain, Amazon.com & Goodreads reviewer

What It's About

Aaron—scholar, alchemist, and sorcerer's apprentice—wants nothing more than to study his tomes, perform his experiments, and spend time with his closest friend, Shanna. Substitute the occasional romp about the city for the books and plenty of games of crutchit for the smelly alchemicals, and Shanna is just fine with that, too.

Their routines—and their lives—are thrown into chaos when an elemental attack is launched against their home. Aaron thinks Shanna killed, while Aaron himself is forced to flee for his life. For Shanna, who survives that fateful night, the greatest adventure of her life is about to begin. Only the worst of nightmares awaits Aaron: pursued by dwarves, hell hounds, and a demon who will not stop until he is dead, the only thing keeping him alive is his own resourcefulness and an eslar mercenary whose reputation as a killer might make him the worst threat of all.

Though Aaron and Shanna travel different paths, their purpose is joined when they individually learn of the mysterious Fifth Element. Shanna sees it as the final piece in the puzzle that is her destiny. To Aaron's logical mind, it is an impossible ambiguity. Whatever the answer, the Fifth Element draws them back together and into a final confrontation not as allies, but as adversaries.
