DFF Reprint: Bitter Water

In 2014 I had a secondary world adventure story called ‘Bitter Water’ published in the anthology Triangulation: Parched (ed. Stephen V. Ramey), featuring sand, bandits, extremely aggrieved merchants, alarming spirit-haunted mountains and some rather unkind practical jokers. Now it’s been reprinted by Digital Fantasy Fiction as an e-book, which I am delighted about, because the characters in it remain among my personal favourites. You can get it both on its own and as part of an anthology of ten awesome fantasy stories. So, you know. Why not?

Story in Triangulation: Parch anthology

So the Parsec Ink anthology Triangulation: Parch is a thing, and I have a story in it called ‘Bitter Water’, which I’m very pleased about, because it involves some of my favourite characters in one of my favourite imaginary places. And also because I should be getting a paper copy in the post in the near future, which will be lovely. This is not dark fantasy! It’s closer to sword & sworcery, I think, or perhaps just secondary world adventure fantasy. Expect sand, bandits, extremely aggrieved merchants, alarming spirit-haunted mountains and some rather unkind practical jokers. And certainly expect a lot more great stories by great authors to go with it.

Many thanks to the editor, Stephen V. Ramey, for some very thorough editing work. I’m sure he didn’t mean to make me feel like I’d been flayed alive…
