More Shameless Self-Promotion: Tales of the Talisman



My short story, The Breath Thief is coming soon:



M.E. Garber introduces us to a werewolf who seeks freedom from the wizard who enslaved her only to find that freedom isn’t all she imagined. David B. Riley reminds us that insurance adjusters will still be around in the future, and that sometimes investigating claims, especially involving mysterious disappearances, can be dangerous business. John C. Conway shows us that saving humanity sometimes requires a willingness to meet long lost loves and that such willingness can be a selfless act. Karissa B. Sluss reminds us that not all vampires crave blood and that most feel trapped by the paths they must walk. These and other chilling tales await in the winter issue of Tales of the Talisman!
