Tales for the Thrifty Barbarian: An Anthology of High Fantasy

Tales for the Thrifty Barbarian was just released! It is a compilation of high fantasy novellas from members of Fantasy Writers International, a group of writers gleaned from the web’s largest fantasy/ sci-fi site, elfwood.com.

I am one of seven contributors to this anthology which is especially dear to me because the project was my late father's creation. This book has been dedicated to his memory.
