Dark Wind Rising



I mentioned here sending a story to a group who is trying to raise money for animal rescue. The story was called "Dark Wind," and is a heroic fantasy involving a character named Thal Kyrin. They've put the story up now, if anyone is interested. You go to Welcome to Suburbia and click on the link at top "for Charity." Since they are raising money for animals, these stories are not free. I think they have only a Pay Pal option at the moment. Not sure if that is going to stay the case.

I wrote a series about Thal Kyrin for a magazine called Shadow Sword back in the late 1980s. They published four or five of them over about a three year span, and were going to publish "Dark Wind" before they ended up folding. This story has never seen print, but it is a "Stand Alone" piece. You don't have to know anything about the previous stories to understand it.

That's a clever way to do it. I'm starting to see dowloadable books and little electronic readers in book stores now. Interesting modes of access sprouting up.

Cheers to your good cause.
