"The power of blood...” in "Swords against Cthulhu III - A New Dark Age " - Anthology".

For anyone interested, it's finally available on Horrified Press shop, and also
on Lulu shop the new Fantasy/Horror Anthology titled "Swords against Cthulhu III - A New Dark Age " by Rogue Planet Press, an Imprint of British Horrified Press , where you can find inside that Sci-Fi/Fantasy Short-Story written by me in American/English ,title "The power of blood…", set in a sort of futuristic Libya, and about something very bad that had gone on in the world for so long,or that was unwisely brought to this world, from the dimension of the Ancient Deities,more or less, anyway…

This story has been written by me and my (unfortunately now dead) friend Ernesto CANEPA, as it was mainly an old idea of his that I recently completed and put on (electronic) paper with some modifications, after some Fantasy RPG sessions of some time ago.

" Pleasure for An Hour, A Bottle of Good Wine...” in "Bottle of Rum" .

As I recently discovered, another Historical Fantasy short story written by me in American/English ,title "Pleasure for An Hour, A Bottle of Good Wine...", set at the time of the terrible Waegu, the Japanese/Chinese/Korean pirates in 1500, in a way, with some magical elements, and with an unexpected ending, maybe…has been published inside the Historical/Urban Fantasy Anthology titled "Bottle of Rum". by Full Moon Books and is available on Lulu.com shop.

This short-story had been previously published in 2015 inside the Historical/Urban Fantasy Anthology titled "The Adventures of Pirates". , by Zimbell House Publishing, and then it was also published as a reprint in the Anthology mentioned above.

As I had sent it in long ago, but I had never heard anything about this project anymore, now I see that is a 2016 Edition that Mrs. Brianna Stoddard started and was later completed/compiled by Mrs. Dorothy Davies.

The funny thing is that I didn't previously notice it, nor had news about it until today... :D :D

Here are the links, and the cover, anyway:

Ente's Stories

Hallo!
I've seen your steady stream of story updates for some time, and now that my first story was submitted just recently, I was wondering if any of those publishing houses you have worked with see fit to gather a collection of your stories.

And now, to the boards!

Re: Aphelion Writers Plug Their Work

For TaoPhoenix:

actually, I'm not planning on having a full collection of my short-stories published all togheter in a single book by one of those publishers as I usually prefer to send, and have - when it happens, of course...- one or no more than two stories of mine at a time in a single Anthology...

By the way, I can inform you that we sent the final and third draft of "Fantastical Savannahs and Jungles" - Anthology ( that you submitted an entry to, and that will appear in that book...) and so we are just waiting for news about the next publishing/release date, of course... :D
