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.

We all know zombies bite. Maybe the way to fight them is to bite back. When I was invited to submit to CHICKS AND BALANCES, the final CHICKS IN CHAINMAIL anthology, I realized I had no ideas for a story. Nothing. Bupkis. So I combed back through my files and thought it might be nice to find out what Dagmar and Ramdane have been up to. The deadline was only a few days away, so I wrote in a great hurry. Later I discovered the publisher had chosen "Bite Me" for the cover!

In which our heroes handle a trapped familiar, an evil magician, and a gorgon. All at once. "Smoke and Mirrors" first appeared in Esther Friesner's TURN THE OTHER CHICK anthology, the fifth of the CHICKS IN CHAINMAIL series. I wrote a sequel to it for the last Chicks anthology. I'll post it next week!
