A Hundred Words

Quick note, because I need to go and help put the baby to bed:

I've updated my website with a new Faction Paradox page, and with a blurb-of-sorts for "A Hundred Words from a Civil War", my short story in Obverse Books' forthcoming Faction Paradox anthology, Faction Paradox: A Romance in Twelve Parts.

The blurb takes the form of a hundred-word title, and it goes like this:
     ...being an Account of the War between the Citizens of the City of the Saved, fought with Potent Weaponry in the aftermath of the Manfold Incursion; including the Suppression of the Gods, the Mission of the Starship Paramount, the Military Campaigns of Melicia Clutterbuck, Ph.D., and Certain Actions on the part of the Rump Parliament of Faction Paradox, with a full history of the Events at the Bonehall Metalith; featuring Romans, Clones, Hermaphrodites, Assassins, Pirates, Posthumans, Vampires, Werewolves, Ghosts, Zombies, Detectives, Giants, Popes, Admirals, Cavemen, Dinosaurs, Baron Frankenstein and a cast of Undecillions.
Let's hope that serves to intrigue the potential reader, eh?

  1. I'm looking forward to the book. The blurb definitely reminds me of the Munchausen storytelling game, stories set in 17--
    Gives a whole "writing in the style of" for the 18th century. I'm always interested in the City and what the Rump Parliament gets up to - I'm currently running an RPG with their involvement as a force in the game.
