Grin The Cheat by mooderino

Only heroes have to fight fair.

There was a time when heroes roamed between the Four Great Cities. They fought for kingdoms and princesses and they lived and died by their valour. Or so the stories say. The way the minstrels sing it, everyone had a swashbuckling good time. Nowadays, buckles are rarely swashed. All the great beasts have been slain, all the great treasures . . .

Peculiar Memories by Jason Macias

Most of the time, my days are as ordinary as the next guy's. Then there are days when something peculiar happens.

Most of the time, my days pass more or less like I imagine the days pass for other people. I work. I enjoy the company of friends. I daydream. I do laundry. Then there are other times when something peculiar happens. Not very often, of course, but frequently enough that I sometimes wonder about these occurrences and what they might . . .

DARK ICON ORIGINAL FICTION

A Mixture of Things

By Jim Zoetewey, editor, author of The Legion of Nothing

Sep 13, 2008: The Dark Icon Original Fiction web site contains a wide variety of stories set in different and interesting worlds. I only spent a significant amount of time with two.

I read all (so far) of the on-going web serial "Court of the Abominatrix" and a couple stories from the "Magekiller" series of short stories.

From what I’ve seen so far, I’m reminded of the science fiction/fantasy found in pulp magazines. The strongest [more . . .]

THOUSAND WORD BLOG

Not Quite a Serial

By JPV1000, author of Warbler

Nov 6, 2015: So here’s the thing: Thousand Word Blog isn’t exactly a serial. It’s a regularly updating blog with short fiction, some of it quite good. I liked a lot of the stories on there. I will likely read more. It’s excellent for just finding something short to read, but don’t go looking there for something actually serialized. Like I said, many stories are quite good, others are a little meh, but they deal with radically different subject matter. It’s worth it to go and check out the site, but don’t expect [more . . .]
