In Digital Stores Now: The King’s Dragon

If you’re not the kind of reader who pre-orders books.  Maybe you want to buy and read.  Either way, it’s cool.  You don’t have to worry about that any more, because today is the day that The King’s Dragon is available for purchase and reading in the same day.

When is the last time you sat down and enjoyed a straightforward tale about a man forced to fight a dragon?  No tricks, no clever gimmicks, no ‘quirky twist on the old cliches’, just a good old fashioned red-in-sword-and-claw fight.  It’s probably been a while, and how good would it feel to lose yourself in an epic battle like that?  Pretty darn good.

Of course, there’s a little more going on in this novella than just a man meeting a dragon in single combat.  What would it take to persuade a man to fight against such long odds?  How would a king overcome an old soldier’s natural reluctance to take up the sword once more?  And what would a father do to save his daughter from King, Dragon, and worse?  These aren’t subplots – they are critical elements of the story of Jason Tavener, one-time champion and potential future dragon chow.

About Jon Mollison

Jon Mollison was weaned at the literary knee of Tolkein, Howard, Moore, and Burroughs. He spent decades wandering in the wilderness of modern genre fiction, wondering when the magic and wonder went out of the world of dragons and space ships. In his darkest hour, he encountered a wise man who handed him the open secrets to crafting works that emulate the stories of the great authors who built the genre. They are easily summarized in but two words: Regress Harder. Now one of the twelve champions of the Pulp Revolution, his self-published works represent a more direct lineage to the tales of action, mystery, romance, virtue, and pure unalloyed adventure than the bland imitations churned out by New York City publishing houses in recent decades.
