Rayne Hall

Author Rayne Hallabout this book: These short stories are set in the world of the dark epic fantasy novel Storm Dancer - a fantasy world with a climate loosely based on the Middle East, and cultures inspired by those of the Bronze Age - the ancient Egyptians, Persians, Hittites, Israelites.

Readers can enjoy the stories as stand-alones; you need not have read the novel.

The Colour of Dishonour, A Horse for a Hero, Each Stone A Life and Kin take place a few years before the events in Storm Dancer, The Water of Truth some decades after, while Greywalker happens at the same time as the novel's final events.

Some of these stories have previously appeared in magazines, ezines, collections and anthologies, others are brand new and published here for the first time.

The tales vary in tone from fun and quirky to disturbing and dark. Most stories lean towards dark, and some cross the boundary into the horror genre.

Pick whatever suits your mood of the moment. If you fancy light entertainment, try "The Water of Truth" which is a humorous fantasy tale. "Kin" is inspired by a Shakespeare play; see if you can spot which one. "A Horse for a Hero" draws on the ancient Greek myth of Pegasus. "Greywalker", "Each Stone A Life" and "The Colour of Dishonour" are dark and sometimes gruesome.

If you've read Storm Dancer, you may recognise some characters and place. Consort Kirral, the villain Storm Dancer fans love to hate, has a starring role in "Each Stone, A Life" while "The Colour of Dishonour" features the Storm Dancer hero Dahoud in a cameo role.

Some of these stories have already appeared in magazines, ezines, collections and anthologies; others are published here for the first time. The spelling, grammar and punctuation are British.
