Winter's Vindication 

 Nuclear winter. The frozen planes of the wild west. The ice-capped mountains of the dark wizard. Modern cities drowning in dunes of snow. Wherever or whenever the story takes place, winter is the worst enemy and the monster chasing the hero. Survival is almost impossible as the sun hides behind billowing, gray clouds. The wind chaps their flesh. Whether the world has been covered in a 100-year winter or the snow has just started to fall, inciting an anticipated panic, Winter’s Vindication is at hand. 


In these ten stories of harsh winter, follow characters from all corners of the universe. Brace yourself against the howling winds and bundle up before a fire to enjoy these tales from the frozen season.

Another World: Stories of Portal Fantasy

Portal fantasy: transporting a character to another world by means of a specific item or gateway.

Through the wardrobe, into the woods, going under a mysterious highway bridge, crawling into a cave, logging in to an online game, escaping into a world within your own--wherever the portal is, you no longer are. In this collection of portal fantasies, follow protagonists from different worlds into a new, fantastic, and sometimes terrifying reality. These portals could lead to another planet, a different reality, a magical land in need of a savior, or a past version of the world steeped in steam, magic, or over-run by a villainous overlord.  


In these tales of portal fantasy, travel to worlds beyond any you have ever experienced before! Just make sure you know the way back...
