Pimchan’s Nightmare #SampleSunday #fantasy

30CoverWomen of Enchantment and Valor… 

Adventure featuring strong female protagonists. Yes, the 30th in the series!

This is my third appearance in the Sword and Sorceress series; the first two were numbers 22 and 23. I also had two short stories in MZB’s much-missed FANTASY magazine.

So rush on out and buy you a copy! Makes a great gift, too!

Available at Amazon in print or for Kindle and at Barnes & Noble for Nook.

excerpt from “Temple of Chaos”
by Marian Allen

The bandits were too much for the partisans but not, Pimchan was gratified to see, for Nandan. Some townspeople had wisely run away, some had fallen, some were still fighting with more courage than skill. Nandan strode among them all like a temple dog, dealing wounds and terror to all trespassers.

With a jangle of a hundred bells, the barred screen that blocked the gateway of the compound fell inward and a figure out of Pimchan’s nightmares stood in the gap.

Small, dressed in rags, elderly, seemingly fragile, white hair and mustache so thin and fine they might have been spun by silkworms, the All-Father leaned on a gnarled stick with both slender hands.

No. Oh, no.

A WRITING PROMPT FOR YOU: A character turns up somewhere your main character does not want them to turn up. Jane, I mean other than Gregori — that would be too easy. ~grin~



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.
