To Walk in Far Places – the collected Orlanthi fiction

FarPlacescover3

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.

Helden: A novella of the Hero Wars

The order comes: gash flesh, gore shield, make iron ring. Glut the wolves and birds of prey with fat and flesh of foe.

I am pleased to note that Helden is again available for download in PDF format. As the clans of Sartar and the Far Place rise in rebellion, a life-sick Humakti and his Vingan companion journey to a hill of swords, where the fate of the Kingdom depends on a desperate and ill-matched few.

Helden is a tale of death and laughter from the Hero Wars. 79 pages. Grab it now.

Warriors went to Whitewall …

Warriors went to Whitewall. Here we stood together, the last moot of the free. Here, with ruse and ritual and quest most desperate, defying the world’s wyrd, we held an Empire at bay for two long years.

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 our eyes were opened. Here we forged a new vision, a new allegiance, a new way of living and dying.

Here the world changed, forever.

I am pleased to announce that ‘Ruin’ is once more available for download here at Myth-O-Logic. ‘Ruin’ describes the journey of two Orlanthi exiles – a skald named Braggi and a vingan called Cradledaughter – to the ruined city of WhiteWall. Written and illustrated by John Hughes,  ‘Ruin’ was first published in Ye Booke of Tentacles VI.

Three Lagerwater Tales

Night makes us all kin, and fast be the friendships forged by the burning brazier coals. Here in the chill silence is founded the true friendship of Vinga and Elmal, for all their rivalry and tongue-thunder in the moot. And here too, the yelmalians and elmali stand true together, and wonder in the enemy darkness if their gods are really so different after all.
