Tales of the Rampant Coyote

Adventures in Indie Gaming!

StoryHack and DragonComet…

Posted by Rampant Coyote on May 9, 2017

As I announced several days ago, I have a story published in a brand-new magazine that emphasizes PULP STORIES!  “Storyhack Action & Adventure” is launching, and it’s pretty awesome. My story is called “Dead Last.” It’s an urban fantasy of secret societies and magic-wielding agents. And guns. And a necromancer.

And it’s out NOW!

Issue #0 is currently free for digital versions… and you can get them at the Storyhack Website. This is the “proof of concept” issue, paid for out-of-pocket by the editor. The author list is pretty impressive. There are some seriously fun stories here. Check it out!

If you like what you see, the Kickstarter for Issue #1 has started! You can pre-order a copy that way and prepare for more pulp adventures.  The projected delivery date for this one is in September, which gives you plenty of time to read the stories in the launch issue. 🙂  Oh, and the ones in Cirsova #4 and #5. You’ve already read those, right? 🙂

Next up… as long as this is a literary post… my story was chosen as a finalist for the 2017 DragonComet Short Story Competition. If you’ve been following my forays into yarn-spinning territory for a while, you may remember that I was the first-place winner of the award last year. I was reminded that there was no restrictions preventing past winners from entering again, and I was encouraged to do so.

So I did. And …. yay! I made the finals. Actually, I submitted for two triads, but the first story wasn’t strong enough to make it to the finals. I’m calling that a good thing… my second story was stronger and has a better chance of placing.  I know a few of the finalists (we’ve got a pretty awesome writer community in Utah), and so I’ll have people to cheer and hopefully congratulate even if I don’t place at all this year.

The awards will be announced at a ceremony at FyreCon in Layton, Utah on June 8th.
