Hey cats and kittens,

It’s time for me to do a little begging. A couple of years ago C.A. Suleiman approached me about writing a story for his proposed shared world anthology, TALES OF THE LOST CITADEL. He sent me the writer’s bible and I was SOLD! He’s conceived it as what he calls a transmedia project–books, art (both digital and physical), music. All of it wrapped up in a post-apocalyptic high fantasy setting. That’s right, post-apocalyptic PRE-TECHNOLOGY! Magic, mayhem, murder, and… We’re not allowed to use the Zed-word–let’s call them the undead.

The last remaining mortal society in the world is the walled mountain city of Redoubt. This sprawling, heavily fortified bastion is the single island of life left in a world of the undead. Redoubt is home to hundreds of thousands of people—human and demihuman like. Stiflingly tyrannical where the rich and powerful dwell, hideously crime-ridden where want and poverty nest, and all around—sometimes within the walls themselves—the ever-restless Dead. Redoubt is a city, a culture, possibly even an entire world, in what certainly seems to be its final hours. And with the exception of certain religious zealots, still convinced mankind is merely being tested, every soul left alive knows it.

Flash forward to today and we’re now into the Kickstarter for the project. Except, It’s not where I thought it would be at this point. We’re three days from the end and still need to raise $4,400 to reach the original goal, and that figure doesn’t include the stretch goals. The stretch rewards for this project are awesome: additional stories by horror masters Elizabeth Massie and Craig Spector; color art; and a friggin’ soundtrack by Toll Carom and Brian Hodge!

So, I’m begging. If you’ve got a couple of bucks floating around, think about skipping a bagel at Dunkin and chipping in. It’d mean the (shared) world to me and the other writers who’d love to play in this sandbox. Plus, you can get a kickass book (if you skip a couple of more bagels) full of stories by some really exciting writers in horror and fantasy. Click the picture to learn more.

And thanks for reading this far and listening to me beg.
