Gunsmoke & Dragonfire is finally out! It’s a hearty anthology of 25 fantasy Western stories which dabbles around in some other speculative genres, like science fiction, post-apocalyptic, and cattlepunk, too. This book’s a really special release for me, since my little tale is both the very first one in the collection and the story behind the cover art.
My tale, Inheritance, is of an encounter between a wandering gunslinger and a shopkeeping enchanter, briefly brought together by their late fathers’ past dealings. I wrote it after getting super inspired by the anthology’s title during its call for submissions, and was thrilled when Diane Morrison, Gunsmoke & Dragonfire’s wonderful editor, chose to include it in the book. You can snag a copy right now on Amazon or directly from Diane via Aradia Publishing!
