Fantasy Horror sword and sorcery

I wrote several short stories about the history of my world in my "Familiar's Tale," fantasy novel series. The Demon Fortress, or Gate of Bones, as the story was originally called, introduces the character of Neelam the Dwarven Wizard, who figures prominently in my series in book 2, Tree of Bones, and Book 3, The Fires of Rapiveshta. He is an old friend of Cathal's and fought side-by-side with him in the original Bloodstone Wars.

Fantasy Humor Strange magic islands Orkney WW2

In this slightly 'punk, slightly magical tale, a squadron of WW2 female pilots are on a mission to cause nuisance. Inspired by an open call by the wonderful Gallery of Curiosities, this story is a mixture of real WW2 information and magical re-imagination. Extra points for those who can spot the real life parts.
