Scion RPG 2nd Edition Review – Part One – Scion: Origin

Scion RPG 2nd Edition Review – Part One – Scion: Origin 

Scion is an urban fantasy roleplaying game (RPG) of a very particular sort and one that’s likely to appeal to fans of fantasy fiction. It’s not about secretive societies of seductive vampires and passionate werewolves lurking in the shadows. (Though you could use it for that, at a stretch.) It’s about the children of the […]

Simantov by Asaf Ashery – English Edition Cover Reveal 

Over the years we have done a few reviews on books and movies translated from other languages into English. I can think of some from Sweden, Spain, and China, off the top of my head. But this is the first time we have showcased a book originally written in Hebrew! And while we don’t yet […]

C. T. Phipps – Interview

King has a few decades on Phipps and is undeniably more famous with a host more published novels and short stories. Nevertheless, Phipps is doing his best to catch up and has a growing […]

Uncanny Collateral by Brian McClellan

Uncanny Collateral by Brian McClellan

Alek Fitz is a collection agent. Not the most pleasant or glamorous of professions. Especially when your clients are corporations controlled by supernatural creatures who aren’t interested in repossessing cars or houses. Fairies and devils have desires that go beyond money. Though neither cruel nor heartless, Alek has little sympathy for his targets. The way […]

When I first said I wanted to review this book, I mentioned the prologue as what drew me in. That wasn’t entirely true. While I did enjoy the prologue (and I’ll mention the chills it gave me later on), it was the title that really caught my eye. How could it not? There’s something enticing […]

Sworn to the Night by Craig Schaefer – SPFBO #4 Finals Review

Sworn to the Night by Craig Schaefer – SPFBO #4 Finals Review

*Disclaimer* Writing and reading is a subjective art. What some folks will absolutely love, others will dislike. It is a bit like Marmite in the UK—normal people dislike it intensely, but some weird folks actually enjoy the taste of warm road surface and fresh roadkill upon their tongue. To each their own, I suppose. Sworn […]

Monthly Short Story Winner: Fire

Monthly Short Story Winner: Fire 

This month we asked our entrants to write about fire. The beauty of fire is its ambivalence. On the one hand we need it to survive (cooking our food, keeping us warm, protecting us) on the other hand it’s dangerous, maybe even diabolical (arson, battle magic, forest fires, household accidents). A fire—no matter if it’s […]

Chasing Embers by James Bennett

Behind every myth there is a spark of truth. There’s nothing special about Ben Garston. He’s just a guy with an attitude in a beat-up leather jacket, drowning his sorrows in a downtown bar. Or so he’d have you believe. What Ben Garston can’t let you know is that he’s also known as Red Ben. […]
