Heroic Fantasy Quarterly Issue 12 went live April 1st — and on time, as usual. This issue’s art is by two-time contributor Mariusz Gandzel. Thanks, Mariusz . . . you’re providing all the eye candy we need!
As for mind candy, check out what we’ve got for you in HFQ Issue 12:
CROWN OF SORROWS, by Seamus Bayne
As sword and sorcerous as we’ve seen in quite awhile at HFQ! A mercenary must become more (and far less) than human to claim a prize.
RHINDOR’S REMISSION, by Russell Miller
The mantle of centuries weighs heavy: a sorcerer’s vast mystical power on the one hand, imminent senility on the other!
BLADE AND BRANCH AND STONE, by Spencer Ellsworth
New dangers, new magics, and new moral dilemmas meet settlers at the edge of an empire.
BURYING THE PLOUGHSHARE, by Bethany Powell
Ah, the joys of carving out a peaceful existence in postwar times. Wait — joy might not be the best choice of words.
SIDHE-SONG, by Phil Emery
A Celt survives the battlefield to live life freely and on his own terms. Or maybe not . . .
LEGEND, by Colleen Anderson
The ultimate endangered species, ultimately hunted to extinction. Almost brings a tear to the eye. Almost.
Last but not least, here are a couple of reviews for HFQ Issue 12:
Thanks, reviewers — we appreciate the love!
And thanks to you for stopping by Storm of the North blog. In coming months, I hope to have exciting news regarding publication of Storm of the North, the novel.
Until then, go forth and read!
