Andrew Knighton

Author Andrew Knightonabout this anthology: Stepping through shadows, the ninja Striking Back Silence hunts a powerful prey.

Following his master to war, the scribe Tobias faces monsters in the French forest.

In a world of rooftops, Teriac Gutterscum carries a message of war through a world of peril.

These thirteen short fantasy stories range from brief snatches of ideas to full blown tales of adventure, from the arena of ancient Rome to a demon detective policing modern hell. There's art and intrigue, love and war, and people just trying to get by. Whether you want a tale of action and adventure, one of whimsy, or a fairytale romance, you'll find something to your taste inside.

From reader reviews:

• "This book is perfect for what it attempts to be: a collection of fantastic short stories, leaning toward the dark side, evoking pathos, humor and excitement. Mr. Knighton has a vivid imagination and a brilliant use of words."

• "For the discerning reader who can appreciate intricate plots, brilliant writing and the full spectrum of what the fantasy genre can offer."
