Dragonhunters
by Garon Whited
Genre: Epic Fantasy
**
**
You don’t become a hero for the money. The money’s nice, sure, but you
become a hero because something inside compels you, drives you to it.
Defending people from monsters simply doesn’t pay well enough to make
it a good career move.


As for hunting dragons… well, the money is usually good, but the job
really bites.
A group of five professional heroes goes into the lair of the dragon.
Who will win?
Spoiler: The dragon.
But it turns out killing a hero sometimes does nothing more than make him
even more determined.

 

Sometimes, heroes are never more dangerous than when they’re dead!

Garon Whited was supposedly born in either 1969 or 1970; the original birth

joined a radical group of jellyfish herding nomads. Having fought
zombie dolphins, quasi-corporeal spirits, and brain-sucking mole
rats, he is uniquely qualified to write fantastic fiction. His
subsequent attempts at professional salsa repairman and ley line
salesman met with similar success. He claims to live in Texarkana, on
Earth, but people have been known to disagree.

Benediction Denied
A Labyrinth of Souls Novel
by Elizabeth Engstrom
Genre: Epic Fantasy
***
***
While hydrologist
Adam Swan is engaged in humanitarian efforts to bring water to a
small, isolated village in the Congo, he is kidnapped by rebel thugs
and thrown into a makeshift prison. He is left to die—or worse—if
his ransom is not paid. In a surprising series of events, Adam
escapes his brutal captors into an underground labyrinth where
reality and sanity no longer rule.
Armed with a limited
amount of magic which he does not understand, he survives by
employing it boldly, recklessly, desperate to return to the village
above, homesick for Minnesota and normal life with his wife and
daughters.
Tested to the
extreme limits of his endurance, Adam navigates the labyrinth with
only the company of his past behavior, the baffling magic, and the
seductive temptation to succumb to the mysterious and merciless gods
of the underworld. The consequences of his actions, past present, and
future, take him to the brink of death—and beyond.
A fun, fast,
thrilling ride by veteran author Elizabeth Engstrom, inspired
by Matthew Lowes’ Dungeon Solitaire: Labyrinth of Souls card
game.

Jamie began writing stories about the man from Mars when she was six, and
she never remembers wanting to be anything other than a writer.
Everyone told her she needed a back up plan, so she pursued a Ph.D.
in American literature, which she received in 1998. She started
teaching writing and literature at Auburn University. One day in the
midst of writing a piece of literary criticism, she realized she’d
put her true passion on the backburner and neglected her muse. The
literary article went in the trash, and she began the book that was
to become The Goddess’s Choice, which was published in April 2012.
Her other novels include The Soul Stone and The Ghost in Exile. In
addition, she has published a novella, Demons in the Big Easy, and a
collection of short stories, Blood Cursed and Other Tales of the
Fantastic. Her short fiction has also appeared in the
anthologies–Urban Fantasy and Of Dragons & Magic: Tales of the
Lost Worlds—and in Bards & Sages, The World of Myth, A Writer’s
Haven, and Short-story.me. She claims she writes about the fantastic
. . . and the tortured soul. Her poor characters have hard lives. She
lives in Auburn, Alabama, with her husband and four cats, which (or
so she’s been told) officially makes her a cat lady. She still
teaches writing and literature at Auburn University. She is the
mother of a grown son.
