Latest news from the underworld

Mythic landscapes, lost cities, fairytale castles, and alien worlds, all packed into a hundred tiny stories.

These miniature works, each exactly a hundred words long, range through points of history, lore and imagination, espionage, flying saucers and medieval warfare, with the occasional sea monster and robot rebellion thrown in for good measure.
