Issue 4 Table of Contents

The Staff of Power editorial by Howard Andrew Jones

The Redemption of Calthus, by Steve Goble
Calthus wasn't sure why he was back, but he meant to stay. And this time he was going to do things right...

The Dead God's Destiny,by Robert Burke Richardson
Jack Nimble may have kept his plans to himself, but there was more than enough mayhem to go around. Too bad The Platypus was losing his touch; or was he?

The Blood Meridian, by Nathan Meyer
It was a suicide mission into Port Royal no sane man would have accepted. But Sabbath didn't care if he survived, so long as he slew Sinclair...

Edges, by Edward Muller
Half a day after the workmen started digging, the Faramal came out of its castle with a simple message. If they persisted, the world would be destroyed.

The Hungry Apples, by Richard Lyon & Andrew Offutt
Another polished tale from two well-known crafters of sword and sorcery. This time Lyon and Offut bring you a tale of Tiana's foster father, Caranga, and his night-long duel with a thing that should not be. Good thing he has a secret weapon...

Jawbone of an Ass, by Steven L. Shrewsbury
Cyrus and Jarius were stalking the warlock, the ogre was looking for a fight, and Rogan... he just wanted a drink.

The Lost Path Between the Worlds, by John C. Hocking
Another fine tale of Kel the archivist finds him investigating the theft of an ancient manuscript and the death of an old friend. Illustrated by the talented Storn Cook.

Hey Howard,

Looks pretty good. I haven't had time to read them all, but I certainly enjoyed Steven Shrewsbury's story. (How many stories begin by quoting Sophocles?)

Is this a special wordplay issue? I noticed some in "Dead God's Destiny" ("Inns are out") and "Jawbone..." ("as limber as the old cuss is with curses").
