Mortu and Kyrus

Walk, don’t run, to your local Amazon store and download Schuyler Hernstrom’s latest work.  Mortu and Kyrus rocks.  It’s as good as anything he’s written, and contains some major twists that make discussions of the book difficult without ruining the surprise.  Which is a shame, because this is a story well worth talking about.  I’ll have a full review over at the Castalia House blog soonish.  For now, all you need to know is that this novella is a glorious mashup of Mad Max, Dying Earth, Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, and Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance.

You’ve got until Friday, and then I’m dropping a blog post here with all the bombshells spelled out, and just the title of that post will ruin a whopping big mystery within the story.  You’ve been warned.

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.
