The Altar of the Toad


I am happy to announce that my new Aculeo & Amunet story, The Altar of the Toad has been published in Issue 50 of Swords and Sorcery magazine, and can be read on-line, for free, by clicking on the link above.

In this new story (the first Aculeo & Amunet story not self-published), our heroes will face a strange menace along the coast of the Black Sea.
The story follows the events described in the collection The Hand of Isfet, but as always it is a stand-alone adventure.


Oh! And… comments are welcome as always!

  1. The right man in the right place, shall we say. 🙂 It’s such a pleasure to know that Aculeo and Amunet made it on Swords and Sorcery!
