To Walk in Far Places – the collected Orlanthi fiction

Download for free in e-book (epub and mobi) format

Here we forged a tribe called Hurricane, birthed by a blue arrow, led by a high king’s courage, strengthened by a star queen’s wisdom, borne upon a desperate storm, forged by feat and fire and the bitter blade-clash of battle.
Here the world changed, forever. Time and the Great Before came together as one. Here we lived each day within a myth, an eternal story most holy and most real, and one not always one of our own telling.

To Walk in Far Places, the collected Far Point fictions of John Hughes, is now available for free download in e-pub (for most readers, including iPad and iPhone) and mobi (for Kindle) formats.

The Far Place Orlanthi of Northern Sartar are a barbaric tribal hunting and farming people given to incessant warfare and raiding. These illustrated tales of death and laughter give an insight into their lives, their myths, their history and their poetry at the beginning of the Hero Wars.

Many of these stories were first published in Tales of the Reaching Moon, Tradetalk, Ye Book of Tentacles, Questlines, or Dragon Pass: Land of Thunder.

A Vingan Warrior for Sacred Time

vinga-2016-border

Friends and Tribesfolk! Bright Blessings all for Sacred Time! Let us quest together, that one day the sun will return. Let us remake the cosmos. Let us celebrate friendship with love and beer and loud singing. Let us make peace between the tribes, and in our hearts. Let us walk in joy, together.

A young Vingan warrior stands before her clan hall, somewhere in Northern Sartar. The white deer on her shield marks clan identity. The rune is a Vinga variant gifted in questing, interpreted as the point of Vinga’s javelin, propelled over vast distance by the Wind.

This is a modelling project in DAZ Studio and Photoshop. The blue-grey/red-brown colour scheme acknowledges Vinga’s parentage, daughter of both Earth and Storm.

I know little of this Orlanthi woman: she sat silent as I painted her face. Later, it rained.

Near final draft of a  rather ambitious art project (by my standards) using DAZ Studio and Photoshop. Well worth clicking for the large scale image!

Comments and suggestions most welcome, as this is still evolving.
