Tuesday Althing: HFQ Issue 6

We successfully published Heroic Fantasy Quarterly Issue 6. This time, we found two cool stories and two poems. From our editorial:

HEART OF MAN, by David Pilling
Heathen rites and anti-establishment battles in ye olde Britain. Last issue we mentioned HFQ would consider publishing historical fantasy —  stories like this are why we opened the doors to real world settings.

THE SEA WASP, by Robert Rhodes
Thuggery on the high seas as superstitious corsairs abscond with a young scribe. What’s the saying? You can take the boy out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the boy . . .

Poetry:

AMBITION, PURPOSE, OUTCOME, by Charles Saplak
The future is a hard thing to know. But you knew that. Nevermind — we think you’ll like this one.

THE DANCE, by Shennandoah Diaz
How long did you think it would last?

Hope you’ll check out this issue of HFQ. Thanks for stopping by!
