Cirsova #4 (and my latest published story) is out!

Posted by Rampant Coyote on November 16, 2016

Cirsova #4 has been released on e-Book format on Amazon and Smashwords. The print edition of the magazine is also available, for those who didn’t do the “mini-subscription” several weeks ago. If you are looking for a gift for the science fiction & fantasy fan in your life, that’s an option, right? 🙂  I will also have a few print copies available at our booth at the Utah Winterfaire during the first weekend of December.

My story, “The Priests of Shalaz,” is my first foray into good ol’ fashioned sword-and-planet fantasy.  Stranded on another world accessible via a portal on a tiny, remote island, Jesse Calhoun is initially relieved when rescue appears in the form of ships from the Royal Navy. But soon, he finds himself caught in the crossfire between the British imperial pursuits of the 1870s and the ruthless and powerful priests of Shalaz.

I wrote this story back in March. I’d recently read The Gods of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs, and had discovered some of the works of Leigh Brackett, and so I was thrilled to discover a new magazine that emphasized those kinds of stories. Here’s hoping it enjoys continued success and growth for a long time. 🙂
