The Street King (A Silver City Tale)

by R. K. Lewis

The Street King is a humorous short story, set in a fictionalised version of Aberdeen (a city in Scotland, UK), which combines elements of fantasy, Arthurian legend, satire, surrealism and general good-natured tomfoolery.

Brief Synopsis:

Arthur – Arty to his friends – is a man of the street. It’s his home; it’s his companion; it’s his source of sustenance; it’s his supplier of cheap strong lager. Unfortunately, the citizens of Aberdeen generally find him a bit of a nuisance, getting under their feet and in their way when they’re trying to go about their ordinary lives.

But Arthur is a man with a rare gift. He has the ability to see things that few others can even dare to imagine. And when he’s ordered to undertake a quest to save mankind from the evil engulfing the city, nay the world, he is brave enough to take up the challenge and embark upon an adventure that takes him right into the heart of darkness where demons, ghouls and dragons await.

Suitable for all ages (if you don’t mind the odd rude word).

The Statue of Ku (Moa Series)

by Tricia Stewart Shiu

This book is free on Kindle 12/30-1/3/14
                 “Statue of Ku” is the second book in the Moa series by Tricia Stewart Shiu. The first is “Moa” and the third, the recently published “Iron Shinto.”  All three chronicle a fanciful flight through time and space in a multi-dimensional universe of interplanetary spirits. “Though Shiu writes her books for a Teen or Young Adult audience, her commitment to expand the mind is so well centered that her audience could comfortably and satisfyingly include adult readers, especially those curious about universal levels of being.” –Grady Harp, Amazon Top 50 Hall of Fame Reviewer Book Description”Statue of Ku” follows Hillary and Moa as they jet to Egypt on the Prince’s private plane to reclaim Moa’s family heirloom, the inimitable statue of Ku. Once on the ground, however, they find that their search is less about retrieving a treasured family possession and more about tracing a healing path in their genetic lineage to its true beginning. Their journey involves magic, sacrifice and discovering their unique healing gifts, which live within all of us. Their story intertwines with that of the real boy, Ku–his questions, his travails and, eventually, his triumph. In their continuing search for the Statue, Hillary and Moa find that the answer to every question they seek is where they least expect it and that healing gifts are not lost but merely forgotten.



Whiteblood

by W. Adam Burdeshaw

“He is a ghost and yet he breathes. I have heard of ghosts in the sense of those whose time has passedâ?¦ but ghosts of those whose time never came to beâ?¦ that is something I cannot even begin to fathom and so I dare not try. This is some sort of curse or miracle or a mingling of the two. He is waking up now I thinkâ?¦”

– Thomas Whiteblood

The Awakened (The Awakened Saga)

by Elisha shelton

In the dream, it was dark. Nighttime. She was standing outside an old brick building and heard the creak of a sign swaying over the doorway; the word orphanage was peeling off the sign in long strips of worn paint. Three cloaked figures emerged, two of which cradled small, securely wrapped bundles in their arms. “At least we found them first,” whispered a man’s voice. He peered lovingly into the eyes of the infant he held tightly. His second companion, a woman, nodded in agreement, adding, “To show such power at their young age. It’s unheard of. They’re lucky they didn’t hurt anyone. Or worse.” Something crashed nearby and the trio’s heads shot up, their eyes darting nervously into the darkness as if expecting something terrible might suddenly materialize out of the shadows. “We should not delay,” breathed the third cloaked figure tensely. “If it’s true what they say, we do not want to be around if he decides to show up.” The cloaked figures peered down at the two bundles and then back up at each other, their eyes screaming fear and horror they could not vocalize, and then they hastened the two infants away into the darkness.
