Kings of the Realm Unleashed

To end the weekend on a more positive note than yesterday's post, Kings of the Realm : A Dragon Anthology - which includes my The Other Ten Thousand - is now available to buy from CreateSpace and Amazon US.

I've seen an electronic copy of this one, and I'm glad to say that it's a very professionally put-together tome, impressively so given how new Lame Goat Press is to the publishing scene. I've only had time to skim a few of the stories and poems therein, but what struck me pretty quickly was the variety - thankfully, there's a lot more here than just Anne McCaffrey-esque high fantasy. Congrats and thanks to Christopher Jacobsmeyer for his work in bringing it together and of course for taking The Other Ten Thousand. I'll likely post again once my dead tree copy arrives from Amazon, but in the meantime, it's a safe bet that if you like stories about dragons then you'll get plenty out of Kings of the Realm.


  1. Hello David,

    Did you just get an acceptance for Lightspeed. Congratulations.

    your TOC buddy from Kings and Zombonauts.

  2. Hi Debs,

    I did indeed. In fact, I just this minute finished jumping up and down on the spot and singing thanks to whatever mad gods govern the publishing industry.

    How on earth did you know?

  3. I'm your number one fan/stalker.

    Nah -- don't worry. I saw your name on Duotropes and remembered it from the anthologies. A quick search and I found your blog.

    Big Congratulations. Hope to join you there one day.

  4. Man, I was hoping I finally had a stalker :)

    I thoroughly enjoyed your story in Zombonauts, by the way, and look forward to one in Kings of the Realm (I'm waiting for my dead tree copy to turn up before I read it).
