That story is found in this book's foreword, but the key line from the story became the title of this anthology. The authors seized upon that line, much like an out-of-control bovine seizing its own halter, and stampeded into the volume you see before you.
This is not just a comedy anthology. Nor is it horror, or romance, or literary, or…well, any one thing. Rather, it is all those things. Each story starts exactly in the same place. But each author immediately leaps from there into their own world. This anthology celebrates the creativity of these authors, because it does not shackle them to a theme. The starting line is the same—the finish line is on other planets, in other times, and in alternate realities.
You’re not going to feel cohesiveness reading this thing. It’s not going to be several stories hitting the same note. But you are going to experience a wider panoply of stories than you would in other anthologies.
And as to what you make of them, or what stories they may inspire in you? Well…that’s your cow.
Penniless and on the run, Sybil Dragonsbane and the dragon Riastel arrive in the port city of Beachcliff. Searching for a cure to Riastel's curse, they decide to journey to the Faymoor College of Magicke to get help. To get money for their travels, Sybil takes a job from a shady merchant while Riastel becomes an apprentice to the city’s premier wizard.
When Riastel is kidnapped by pirates, Sybil must rush to his rescue. Now if she can’t put an end to the dragon terrorizing Beachcliff from the shadows their journey may be over before it can even begin.
This is Book 2 in the Dragonsbane Saga
To get the bracelet back, the pair must travel deep into the mountains on a journey fraught with peril, slimes, hostile dragons, and annoying unicorns. As the danger mounts, Riastel faces a tough choice between his dragon self and Sybil’s love. Is getting back one worth losing the other?
Silence of the Dragon is the fourth book in the Dragonsbane Saga series.
A genius of unrivaled aptitude, Stephen can learn any new skill, vocation, or art in a matter of hours. However, to contain all of this, his mind creates hallucinatory people—Stephen calls them aspects—to hold and manifest the information. Wherever he goes, he is joined by a team of imaginary experts to give advice, interpretation, and explanation. He uses them to solve problems . . . for a price.
His brain is getting a little crowded and the aspects have a tendency of taking on lives of their own. When a company hires him to recover stolen property—a camera that can allegedly take pictures of the past—Stephen finds himself in an adventure crossing oceans and fighting terrorists. What he discovers may upend the foundation of three major world religions—and, perhaps, give him a vital clue into the true nature of his aspects.
Legion: The Many Lives of Stephen Leeds includes Legion, Legion: Skin Deep and the brand new, shocking finale to Leeds' story, Lies of the Beholder.
At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.
Will Riastel find the real killer before it’s too late? And, more importantly, will we finally get the answer to that age old question: are dragons lactose intolerant?
