Explore the labyrinth…if you dare.
Exotics trader Hetha Eran has been poking her nose in the Labyrinth’s business since she was a snot-nosed little kid. And given her experience, she’s pretty sure she has at least a few more years before the Labyrinth figures out a way to turn her guts inside out.
The Labyrinth, alas, takes this as a challenge.
When Hetha accidentally poisons a rather important person, she and her half-shark assistant find themselves tumbling into a landscape unlike any other. One that might just be enough to make even the most committed carnivore a vegetarian…
A weird and wild and sometimes darkly grotesque black comedy in the vein of John Dies at the End, The Hills of Meat, The Forest of Bone will challenge everything you’ve ever thought about science fiction and storytelling.
Broken Cities Works By Other Awesome Authors Whom You Should Totally Read
The Grand Storytellers reminisce in the pale evenings, telling salvaged stories as the event horizon creeps toward their temples.
They speak of war-witches and disinherited queens, women who changed history and women who were made by the history of others.
They speak of a labyrinth, the body of a dying god, hollowed by time and carrion-feeders, and the creatures that once lurked within.
They tell their own stories, too, secrets snatched from dying planets and closing doors, adventurous centuries spent chasing the threads of forgotten mythologies.
They tell these stories as death consumes them, hoping that someone will remember.
The Shattered Queen and Other New Mythologies is a collection of unpublished and reprinted short stories and flash fiction from acclaimed author and editor Jaym Gates.
The stories are a mix of new weird and science fantasy, inspired by mythology, the visual works of Guillermo del Toro, and authors such as Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Phillip Jose Farmer, and Clark Ashton Smith.
A thrilling new tale in The Broken Cities Universe.
For time out of mind, the Brezhian people have protected the Wothwood, their lore passed down for generations to each clan. While rumors of a lost city within the wood pervade their mythology, none dare enter the sacred grove, the living grave of their goddess, Noduuoret. But when the Therian army arrives, intent on learning the Wothwood’s secrets, three heroes arise to challenge the threat: Lon, the warrior in exile; Glannon, the young ruler who left him to die; and Aoda, the woman of science, disfigured but unbent.
Together, they enter the Wothwood. Drawn by revenge. Drawn by desire. And drawn by the thirst for knowledge.
Adventure awaits in the wood where the world is broken.
Fans of The Hills of Meat, the Forest of Bone, and The Shattered Queen will enjoy this exciting new tale of Broken Cities!
