The Mountain’s Price

The Mountain’s Price

This is the final installment in my Wandering Mountain’s series. If you need a refresher, it started with Child of the Plains and continued in Man of the Mountain, then again in Legends of Old. It picks up with Council of Silver and The Traitor’s Trial followed by Spirit of the Mountains. Here’s the story: …

Spirit of the Mountains

Here is the penultimate installment of the Wandering Mountains saga! It started with Child of the Plains and continued in Man of the Mountain, then again in Legends of Old. It picks up with Council of Silver and The Traitor’s Trial. The stunning conclusion will go live two weeks from today! I got the idea …

The Oracle’s Choice

The Oracle’s Choice

It seems every time I post an installment of this story, an addition pops into my head. I wrote this shortly after scheduling The Oracle’s Game to post. And I wrote that one shortly after re-reading The Oracle’s Disc – which was originally supposed to be a stand alone story. I’m not sure where this …

The Council of Silver

The Council of Silver

Sorry for the odd interlude. But when the muse knocks, it’s a good idea to answer. But here we are! Back to the Wandering Mountains! It started with Child of the Plains and continued in Man of the Mountain, then again in Legends of Old. Here’s the fourth installment! I got the idea for this …

The Seventh Soul

The Seventh Soul

Since I mentioned that last week’s prompt was the last one I wrote in 2018, you can probably deduce that this was the first one I wrote in 2019. It was tough, because this picks up in the middle of a plot that I had walked away from for most of a month. But in …

Put Me In An Airport

Put Me In An Airport

The title for this prompt may be a tribute to the Hat Films classic by the same name. (I can neither confirm nor deny.) Anyway, this was the last prompt I wrote in 2018 (in case you wonder how big my buffer is). I squeezed it in on a Saturday, the day before we flew …
