A digest complied of heroic fantasy stories from the online webzine Lyonesse. My contribution to this first volume is 'Shini-tai' which sees Shintaro Oba helping a sumotori to survive long enough to challenge the yokozuna at a wrestling bout that could change the spiritual landscape of Mu-Thulan and make things harder for the demons that infest the empire.
