Yes, it’s Tuesday again. Got another story for you.
This story is historic fiction. It’s one of The Shadow Wars stories, the first one in The Guardian Hound.
I started my career writing historic fantasy. I’d always been fascinated with history, as well as with China. So I combined my two passions and wrote Paper Mage. It’s the novel I’m still best known for among readers.
I find that about one out of every three stories I tell is either straight historic, or has historic elements (like The Guardian Hound.)
However, I don’t assume that the readers who like my historic fantasy will like the contemporary fantasy. So there will be more historic fantasy to come.
In the meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this short story!
Hans can never do anything right. He’s a disappointment to his father, his employer, even the hound clan.
But Hans’ Grandpapa was a brilliant Apotheker, and his old books contain many potions.
Maybe Hans can find just the right one. . .Or maybe he makes a serious mistake.
This story is set in “The Shadow Wars” series, and is part of the novel, The Guardian Hound.
Here and gone!
