In a universe where there’s no such thing as a free lunch, surprise! John Marco is offering his short story The Last Challenge for free over on his blog. I have to admit, I don’t read a lot of fantasy short fiction – an ironic statement since I’m in middle of reviewing an anthology of fantasy short fiction – but this short by John was well worth it. If nothing else, it gives you a good idea of what his longer works are like. So go, ask for a copy, see what you think.
And yeah, that’s my name on the page, but I really didn’t do anything more than abuse Calibre for a few minutes. You should read it anyway. Happy friday/Halloween!
