Gods and Cruel Wizards, Tales of Dark Fiction

Gods and Cruel Wizards, Tales of Dark Fantasy (by Nickel Crow)

I am happy to announce the release of a new collection of short fiction, entitled “Gods and Cruel Wizards, Tales of Dark Fantasy.”

Four tales of dark fiction by Nickel Crow, author of “Master of Time” and “Master of the Hunt”. Magic is all about us, whether we choose to acknowledge it or not. There are those who would tempt their fates by practicing black magic, or those who would risk their very souls for a taste of immortality. Beware the paths you tread in these dark pages.

The stories include:

“The Incubus and the Duchess”. The new Duchess of Pemmington Moraine lives in fear of her Duke, a man with notorious ties to the dark arts and cruel magic. But there is more than the Duke to fear. Within the castle roams a mad woman in a grotesque leather mask, and an Incubus that wants the Duchess for himself. The Duchess is forced to make a choice between evils.

“Bone Well”. A child’s curiosity reveals the terrible truth behind the well that has cursed the countryside, and also the evil plans of a cruel wizard in the process.

“On Becoming a God”. A revered wizard-king has grown so powerful that he challenges the Gods and demands to take his place among them. The Gods take notice, but will his demands be met?

“The Will of Nynd.” On the planet Katlani, science has strangled belief in the Old Gods, dismissed as mythology. But once every two hundred years, an eclipse brings stories of Nynd, God of the Night. The young ones no longer believe. Is there still enough faith for Nynd to return for one last journey?
