A few really, really short stories by MARSocial Author of the Year Finalist J. W. McAllister
If you liked the Twilight Zone’s cute ironies, perhaps you’ll find some amusement here. Also included are short introductions to events and characters in four books I have written or are working on.
A disillusioned, war-weary hero becomes a reluctant king. His rule is such that he becomes known as the Good King.
While defending his people from one of the incessant attacks from the North, the Good King takes an orphaned child as his page, and raises the boy by the ideals of a more promising time.
Grown into a young knight, the Page sets out to find his overdue king. Along his way he finds a village controlled by a tyrannical sheriff. The secret behind the sheriff’s power is unleashed when Page tries to free the village.
As the knight fights off the dragons, one captures a maiden as revenge. Page pursues, and thus begins or tale.
Heroes grown old try to pass on the Way of a more civilized time. Have they taught the young ones enough?
